Tottenham v Aston Villa: match preview

Aston Villa are on a high after winning at Manchester United last weekend and face a Tottenham side that will have had less than three days to recover from their Europa Conference exertions. Spurs will take great heart from Harry Kane’s hat-trick against Mura, although Tyrone Mings and company should present a sterner test. Villa’s Ollie Watkins is back in the England squad, but his manager, Dean Smith, is surprised Ezri Konsa has not been called up by Gareth Southgate “because I know the talent on my hands”.
