Aston Villa will look to make it three Premier League wins on the bounce when they face Tottenham on Sunday.

Dean Smith doesn’t have any fresh injury problems to worry about, but he remains without a handful of first-team stars and so will be looking to mastermind another impressive victory here.

Here’s how the boss could set up.

Emiliano Martínez

Emiliano Martinez (GK) – His mind games seemingly worked wonders against Bruno Fernandes and he’ll hope to get in Harry Kane’s head too.

Ezri Konsa (CB) – Still on the outside of the England setup, Konsa needs use this latest snub as inspiration to keep improving.

Kortney Hause (CB) – Goalscoring hero against United, Hause should keep his place ahead of Axel Tuanzebe.

Tyrone Mings (CB) – Finishing off the trio is Mings, a permanent fixture in the squad.

John McGinn

Matty Cash (RM) – Tipped to make his international debut for Poland soon, Cash has been excellent for Villa of late.

John McGinn (CM) – One of the first names on the team sheet.

Jacob Ramsey (CM) – The 20-year-old has been fantastic since his promotion to the senior side, with his energy proving to be crucial to Villa’s midfield.

Douglas Luiz (CM) – Operating as more of an anchor will be Luiz, who has popped up with an assist in each of his past two matches.

Matt Targett (LM) – With Trezeguet and Leon Bailey both out injured, Targett should start as an advanced wing-back.

Ollie Watkins

Ollie Watkins (ST) – Yet to score this season but will be boosted by his recent inclusion in the England squad.

Danny Ings (ST) – Ings, who was on Spurs’ radar this summer, is on his own run without a goal and will be keen to avoid making it five on the bounce here.
