  • There are less than 10 minutes to kick off and it's honestly hard to say which way this game will go... Tottenham surely can't repeat their performance against West Ham can they?

  • The players are out on the pitch and being soaked by a torrential downpour. Looks pretty hideous weather in the midlands.
    10/20/2013 2:58:49 PM
  • And we're off...

  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 0: Early chance for Gabby Agbonlahor but he can't capitalise. He got the ball in the middle of the area and did well to spin and get a shot away but blasted it over the bar.

  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 0: Villa have definitely started the brighter of the two teams and already look like they will be keeping a close watch on Andros Townsend.

  • No more tracksuits... Paul Lambert clearly spent much of his summer getting a fancy new wardrobe at Bicester Village...

  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 0: Early booking for Ashley Westwood who mistimes a tackle on Lewis Holtby and just ends up kicking the German international in the shins. Definite yellow card despite the protestations of Paul Lambert.

  • Gabby Agbonlahor is dispossed by Sandro...

  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 0: Just over 15 minutes gone and nobody has managed to break the deadlock yet. Spurs are beginning to play their way into the game a little more though.
    10/20/2013 3:19:39 PM
  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 0: Free kick in a dangerous position for Villa and they almost take the lead as the ball is whipped in and bounces trickily just before Lloris who in the end does well to palm it away.
    10/20/2013 3:22:35 PM
  • Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 1: The new man nearly makes an immediate impact! Great cross into the area by Bacuna and the imposing Belgian striker leaps but can't get on top of his header and it goes over the bar.

  • Sandro battles for the ball with Libor Kozak...

  • GOAL! Aston Villa 0 Tottenham 2 - Roberto Soldado
    That should be the match for Tottenham and it's a great goal. Soldado and Holtby trade passes before the German finds Paulinho whose clever lay off to Soldado running into the box is swept into the net. Excellent play from Tottenham.
