Spot of bother

TOTTENHAM V ASTON VILLA

An in form Aston Villa playing away at a Tottenham side under fire and with a point to prove looks set to be something of a classic encounter.

With Spurs languishing at the bottom of the table and with a new Russian striker to show off it could all play into the hands of the considerable counter attacking talents of Carew, Agbonlahor and Co.

There is almost an embarassment of riches in terms of goal threats at Villa right now but there is one consistent performer who is due a goal at a very good price.

Gareth Barry had a strike rate of just short of 1 goal in 4 games last season and the conditions look perfect this weekend for the penalty and free kick specialist to start cranking things up again this year.
