Tottenham is seeking their seventh home win of the season and will likely be aggressive in their pursuit of victory.

Harry Kane, who scored his 13th goal of the season on Boxing Day, will be a player to watch for Tottenham.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa had defensive struggles in their 3-1 loss to Liverpool, which is another reason to predict a win for Tottenham.

Argentina’s Emiliano Martinez is expected to return to Aston Villa’s starting lineup after being rested against Liverpool, but Diego Carlos and Jacob Ramsey are out with injuries.

Tottenham’s Richarlison will be out for a few more weeks with a hamstring injury, but Cristian Romero could return from international duty for New Year’s Day.

Djed Spence may also be available for selection after overcoming illness, but Rodrigo Bentancur’s groin injury has not fully healed and Lucas Moura is still dealing with a tendon issue.

Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris and Romero are expected to start, unless Ben Davies is fit enough to play in the three-man defense.

For Aston Villa, Martinez could be back in the lineup, but may also face controversy due to his actions during the Argentina national team celebrations.

Diego Carlos and Jacob Ramsey will also be out for Villa, and Ashley Young may be replaced at right-back by Matty Cash after struggling against Liverpool.
