Tottenham Hotspur visit Aston Villa on Boxing Day, Sunday 26th December for the second Premier League meeting between the two clubs in the 2010-11 season.

Spurs have previously beaten Aston Villa 2-1 at White Hart Lane on 2nd October with a brace of goals from Rafael van der Vaart.

The match at Villa Park will be the 160th time the two teams have met.

Tottenham Hotspur first met Aston Villa on 11th April 1896 when Spurs were still in the Southern League. The friendly match played at Tottenham Marshes ended with a 3-1 win for Aston Villa.

Three more friendlies were played until the clubs met in anger for the first time in the old Third Round of the FA Cup (today's 5th Round) in March 1903 with Villa winning 3-2.

The first Football League meeting came on 20th November 1909 in the First Division after Spurs had been promoted after their first season of League football. Villa once again won 3-2.

There have been two Wembley matches played between the two clubs.

The first was in the 1971 Football League Cup Final which Spurs won 2-0 with two goals from Martin Chivers - Aston Villa were in the Third Division at the time.

The second game at Wembley came in the 1981 Charity Shield with FA Cup Winners Spurs drawing 2-2 with Football League Champions Aston Villa. Mark Falco scored both Spurs goals and Peter Withe did likewise for Villa.

There have been no Domestic Cup meetings between the two teams during the last 16 years.

The last time they met was in the 5th Round of the League Cup in January 1994 with Villa winning 2-1.

Both Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur were founder-members of the Premier League in 1992-93 and the two clubs, along with Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United are among the only seven ever-present clubs during the competitions 19 season history.

Sunday's game at Villa Park will be the 160th match played between the two clubs and Spurs have the slight edge with 62 wins to Villa's 59 with 38 matches having been drawn.

I really do hope this match goes ahead and not postponed by the weather.
If we play then Villa have been having a bit of a torrid time of late even
though they have won a couple of games.It is good that we have got some
of our injured back ie;VdV and Kaboul and if they play I can only see a win
for the mighty SPURS.We can also concentrate now on the premier league
right up to February so we can pick up some points.

I was shocked when I saw how far down the table Villa are! I still see them as competing for Europa league but not this year I think. VDV is back so I hope we give them a stuffing. We've got to start getting some more points on the board or we'll lose sight of 3rd and 4th.

I really can't see us losing this match. But I do have a feeling it will end in a 0-0 or 1-1 draw. I hope I am wrong and we win the match, which we are more than capable of doing.

Aston Villa are a poor team, but they will battle, park the bus and make it hard for us. No doubt they will pack the midfield and look to hang on for low scoring, or no score draw. Villa do not hold much threat going forward and have a habit of letting in goals from set-pieces. So we have to make our corners and free kicks pay. With Rafael Van Der Vaart back he and Luka Modric should provide the keys to open up Villa and we just have to take our chances.

We'll get a chance to see VDV play with Defoe i would think, but that will cost us at the set pieces that Mr H has pointed out where Villa are vulnerable.

So that begs the question:- Defoe or Crouch?

With City losing to Everton we have a great chance to close the gap. Would like to see VDV + Defoe and Crouch can come on if he is needed.

I feel sure that Crouchy will get a run out if Defoe does nothing.

Come on you Spurs. FYI, Villa have the same GS GA numbers (essentially) as we do at home...should be a tight game by the numbers. I think VDV and Defoe have the potential to cause them some probs tho.

I will state now, we will concede from a set peice. Our team is far too small, and Bale and Lennon are gonna be putting in crosses to nobody. We have to play it through the middle completely today.

Been waiting to see this attack for a while.

It could work brilliantly if we get a hold of the ball and can move it around. The wide men are in no way out of this, we can still break quickly with pace all over the pitch ( we often score with crosses hit along the deck to a strikers feet), and Lennon and Bale are also decent in tight spaces.

VDV and Defoe's movement and pace could go great together, and its the first time VDV is getting to play with a natural goal scorer.

The lack of height is obvious but there are ways around it.
