Watch Tottenham vs Aston Villa Live Streaming

Tottenham vs Aston Villa live stream, Spurs are in real need of a Premier League victory as they host Aston Villa this afternoon.

After a positive start to life under Nuno Espirito Santo, Tottenham’s form has nosedived of late with successive heavy derby losses against Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal.

They did thrash Slovenian minnows NS Mura in the Europa Conference League on Thursday night, but even then needed to send for the cavalry, with Harry Kane coming off the bench to hit a second-half hat-trick.

Tottenham have not lost four successive top-flight matches since 2004, though are likely to face another stern test against a stingy Villa outfit that sit up in eighth after impressive back-to-back victories without conceding against Everton and Manchester United.

Follow Tottenham vs Aston Villa LIVE with Standard Sport’s blog below, with expert analysis from Dan Kilpatrick at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Live updates

Who needs Grealish?

All the talk in the summer was about Aston Villa losing Jack Grealish, but they have done well so far without him.

They have particularly tightened up at the back and are looking to make it three clean sheets in a row.

Nuno has full support of squad, says Skipp

Nuno is under pressure but he seemingly has the backing of his players.

“As a group we are fully aware that the last few games we haven’t been at our best, but we are definitely still behind the manager and trying to implement the stuff we are working on,” Skipp said

Some unwanted stats for Nuno to avoid

If Tottenham lose today it will be the first time they have lost four Premier League games in a row since November 2004.

If they also, somehow, ship three goals it will be the first time they have conceded three or more goals in four consecutive top-flight fixtures since 1958.

 

No place for Alli

Our reporter Dan Kilpatrick, who is at the game today, predicted Dele could miss out today and it has proven the case.

He was hooked at half-time against Arsenal and Oliver Skipp comes into the side instead. It does mean we get to see Tanguy Ndombele in a more advanced role – which should be fun.

It looks like Spurs will line-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, as opposed to a 4-3-3.

Teams are out

Tottenham: Lloris, Emerson, Romero, Dier, Reguilon, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Lucas Moura, Kane, Son.

Subs: Doherty, Sanchez, Winks, Gil Salvatierra, Rodon, Lo Celso, Alli, Gollini, Scarlett.

Aston Villa: Martinez, Konsa, Hause, Mings, Cash, McGinn, Jacob Ramsey, Douglas Luiz, Targett, Ings, Watkins.

Subs: Buendia, Steer, Traore, Tuanzebe, Young, Nakamba, El Ghazi, Philogene-Bidace, Archer
