Tottenham look set to make changes from the side that drew Panathinaikos 1-1 in Greece on Thursday.
Brad Friedel should return in goal for what would be his 311th-straight Premier League appearance, with Hugo Lloris once more prevented from making his Premier League debut. The game will come too soon for Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee), who is still two weeks away from a first-team return. William Gallas should continue start at left back.
Aston Villa welcomes the return of center back Richard Dunne after a long spell on the sidelines (groin), and he should partner with Ron Vlaar at the heart of the defense.
After impressive cameos in the 1-1 draw against West Brom last week, Charles N'Zogbia and Darren Bent look set to be handed starts, with Bent, in particular, hoping to rediscover his goal-scoring touch.
