Sports Mole previews Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Aston Villa.

Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to bounce back from defeat when they head to Aston Villa on Sunday.

Andre Villas-Boas's side were beaten 3-0 by West Ham United in their last match before the international break.

Villa are unbeaten in their last three matches, winning two in succession before their stalemate at Hull City a fortnight ago.

Spurs ran out 4-0 winners at Villa Park when the two sides met in the third round of the League Cup last month.

Villa boss Paul Lambert could name Christian Benteke in his starting XI after the striker was named on the bench for Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Wales on Tuesday night, following his recovery from a hip injury.

Roberto Soldado is expected to return to the Spurs side after the Spaniard was dropped for the defeat to West Ham. England winger Andros Townsend could also start.
