Happy Sunday morning, everyone! Spurs travel to Villa Park today to take on Aston Villa, a club that hasn't scored in over 500 minutes of open play. It's a match that Spurs desperately need to keep their faint hopes of fourth place alive. Spurs are better than Villa. So what could possibly happen?

So, uh, no Lamela today. Soldado starts, but it's alongside Adebayor. Is this a RUN THE DANG 4-4-2 formation? Did Poche have one too many pumpkin spice martinis at the Halloween party? What's going on? But on the bright side, Kyle Naughton starts at right back, which is a very, very good thing.
No Alan Hutton for Villa, which is sad only because we won't get to make fun of him. Lowton will step in for him.
