Ottenham continue their push to finish fourth at Aston Villa on Saturday.
After overtaking Arsenal in fourth place with their 5-1 thrashing of Newcastle last weekend, the momentum is with Spurs in the hunt for Champions League qualification.
Villa Park has long been a happy hunting ground for Tottenham, who have not lost on the Midlands pitch since 2008 and cruised to a 2-1 win over their opponents in the reverse game.
Arsenal and Manchester United are both in action ahead of Antonio Conte’s side this weekend, against Brighton and Everton respectively, meaning Tottenham will at least know their position for fourth before kick-off.
Steven Gerrard’s Villa have suffered three straight defeats in recent weeks and are in 11th place heading into this round of fixtures.
