Ledley wary of Villa trio

Ledley King believes that the attacking trio of Darren Bent, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Emile Heskey will pose a big threat at White Hart Lane on Monday night.

Ledley King believes that the attacking trio of Darren Bent, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Emile Heskey will pose a real threat at White Hart Lane on Monday night.

The Club captain spent two seasons alongside Bent when the striker played for Spurs for two seasons between 2007-2009.

Bent, Agbonlahor and Heskey have struck 11 goals between them this season and Ledley is well aware of the Villa front three.

"Darren did well while he was here and he's a proven goalscorer," he said. "He has scored goals at every Club he's been at.

"I've played against Emile many times over the years. He's a handful, he always has been. He's a great foil for somebody like Benty.

"Agbonlahor has been playing very well too this season. They're a dangerous side, a good counter-attacking side and we are going to have to be at our best to get something from the game."

The lads will be going for their eighth win in nine Premier League outings on Monday, and Ledley believes it is our consistency that is helping the team to believe they can win games in any situation.

"Winning breeds confidence. The performance (against Fulham) wasn't us at our best, but the character was great.

"We dug deep and it might be a game we would have lost a few years ago, but now we've got the belief that we can win games even when we're not at our best. That's a great sign."
