Tottenham will look to strengthen their push for a top-four finish when they travel to face Aston Villa on Saturday.

Antonio Conte's men have goal difference on their side but have still played one game more than closest rivals Arsenal, so picking up a win and making it four victories on the bounce is crucial to their European aspirations.

To do so, they'll have to take on a Villa side with nothing but personal pride left to play for. They'll finish mid-table but a run of three straight defeats - and five in their last eight - has threatened to drop them down the standings.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Aston Villa team news

Danny Ings should be available again after missing the Wolves game for the birth of his child, so expect him to line up alongside Ollie Watkins in a two-man attack.

There could also be a return for Kortney Hause, while Lucas Digne should be fine after illness saw him hauled off early last time out, but midfielder Marvelous Nakamba remains out.


Tottenham team news

Ryan Sessegnon is back in training but isn't expected to return to full action for a little while yet, so he'll remain on the sidelines alongside Oliver Skipp and Japhet Tanganga.

Fellow left-back Sergio Reguilon is likely to make the squad after overcoming a knock but he'll struggle to displace either Emerson Royal or Matt Doherty after the pair both scored against Newcastle.


Aston Villa vs Tottenham score prediction

These two teams come into this one on the opposite ends of the form spectrum. Villa have lost three straight, while Spurs have three wins on the trot to their name.

Conte's men are flying at the minute and they look like they'll be too strong for Villa, although the hosts should put up a better fight than Newcastle did at the weekend.

That being said, expect a comfortable away win.

Prediction: Aston Villa 0-2 Tottenham
