Tottenham predicted line-up vs Aston Villa

Tottenham have fresh injury concerns as they seek only their second league win in eight when they travel to Aston Villa on Sunday.

While Kyle Naughton came through his come back against Brighton on Wednesday with no complaints, and is set to make his league return at VIlla Park, Aaron Lennon had to be substituted at half time with a slight hamstring injury.

Whether Lennon would have featured in the matchday squad is up for debate as head coach Mauricio Pochettino tries to work out who he rates and who he does not. The England winger did not even make the bench in the home loss last week to Newcastle.


The doubts over Etienne Capoue's fitness are more troubling with Pochettino. The Frenchman has cemented his place as the defensive lynchpin of the midfield after the sale of Sandro to Queens Park Rangers, but a knee injury threatens to rule him out. That would present a chance to either Mousa Dembele or Benjamin Stambouli, and it will be interesting to see who is preferred.

“At the moment they are both doubts and we’ll see how they recover in the next few days,” Mauricio told the club's official site on Thursday.
