Aston Villa v Spurs preview
Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is likely to be without eight players for Tuesday's Capital One Cup third-round tie against Tottenham at Villa Park.
Key striker Christian Benteke will be absent after suffering a hip injury in Saturday's 1-0 win at Norwich.
Fellow forward Gabriel Agbonlahor (ankle) and midfielder Ashley Westwood (thigh) are also doubtful and highly unlikely to be risked.
Fabian Delph and Antonio Luna are struggling with knocks while Jores Okore (knee), Charles N'Zogbia (Achilles) and Gary Gardner (back) are long-term casualties.
Jed Steer is set to replace Brad Guzan in goal and there are also expected to be starting places for the likes of Nicklas Helenius and Yacouba Sylla.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will ring the changes for Tuesday's clash.
The Spurs boss has expressed his frustration that the fixture takes place just two days after their Premier League win in Cardiff, and very few who featured in south Wales are likely to start at Villa Park.
The likes of Brad Friedel, Erik Lamela, Lewis Holtby, Sandro and Vlad Chiriches could all start, but Jermain Defoe is a doubt due to a groin strain.
