Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg fires Spurs in front


Follow all the action live as Tottenham Hotspur host Aston Villa, with Nuno Espirito Santo’s side under pressure and looking to put to an end their run of three straight defeats in the Premier League. Spurs may have been lifted by a second-half hat-trick from Harry Kane as they defeated NS Mura 5-1 in the Europa Conference League on Thursday but that will count for little if the hosts continue their Premier League slide, which continued following a sobering 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in the north London derby last weekend.

“The criticism is normal,” Nuno said this week. “Everybody knows how this industry works. When you don’t play good, when you don’t perform and results don’t go your way, criticism is something you have to deal with. We understand it and it’s up to us to react and change it.”

Dean Smith’s Aston Villa side are in form following back-to-back wins in the Premier League, including an excellent 1-0 victory at Old Trafford last time out. Smith said his side will continue to play on the front foot against Spurs, and are looking for consecutive wins at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following a 2-1 victory at the end of last season. “We hold no fear going to Tottenham but we know the dangers that they have,” Smith revealed. “We certainly have to be at our best but we have confidence and we have a bit of belief in ourselves at the moment so it should make for a really good game.” Follow all the action below:
