Tottenham could not find a way past Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel as two of this season's top-four hopefuls in the Barclays Premier League cancelled each other out as they recorded a goalless draw.

Visiting goalkeepers have enjoyed the limelight at White Hart Lane this season and Friedel was at his dependable best, denying Ledley King with his best save.

Spurs thought they could have had a last-gasp penalty when Jermain Defoe was challenged by Stiliyan Petrov - but it remained goalless.
