Aston Villa v Tottenham preview

Team news ahead of Sunday afternoon's Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Tottenham at Villa Park (kick-off: 4pm).

Alan Hutton has been ruled out for Aston Villa with a sprained ankle and will not face his former club.

Philippe Senderos (thigh) is described as a "major doubt" by manager Paul Lambert and is unlikely to feature. Fabian Delph is out until the new year following surgery on his dislocated shoulder, with Carlos Sanchez expected to deputise in midfield again.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino will have to decide on whether to hand Harry Kane his first Premier League start at Villa.

Kane pushed his claims for selection after scorimg his eighth goal of the season in the Capital One Cup win over Brighton - in which Pochettino made 10 changes.

The likes of Hugo Lloris, Younes Kaboul, Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Emmanuel Adebayor are likely to return to the team but Nabil Bentaleb (ankle) and Kyle Walker (pelvis) are still missing.
