The Spurs fans in the Tavern are hoping that following an unbeaten run in December, which began with a 5-0 demolition of Swansea, Tottenham can continue this good form against Aston Villa in the FA Cup.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men are riding high in the Premier League and the Argentine is fully focussed on a top 4 finish, securing another year in the Champions League.
Spurs have tough games against West Brom and Man City in the coming weeks and it is very likely Pochettino will rest key players against Villa, who are currently mid-table in the Championship.
This FA Cup tie could prove tricky for Steve Bruce, who is targeting promotion to the Premier League, as he can ill-afford an extended campaign in the cup competition potentially fatiguing an already troubled squad.
The Spurs manager deploys a high pressing, attacking style of football which, on their day, can overwhelm any team in the world and the Villains may well struggle with the pace that ‘Poch’ sets.
The Landlord at the Tavern believes Tottenham finally have a squad of players capable of challenging on multiple fronts blessed with experienced internationals, future stars and academy graduates and in the next few years they will be the team to watch.
So, with that in mind, Tottenham should field this XI on Sunday.
