Villa vs Spurs - Andre's preview
24 September 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
Andre Villas-Boas expects a 'difficult' encounter against Aston Villa as we open our campaign in the Capital One Cup at Villa Park tonight.
Villa picked up an impressive win at Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday.
After a bright start and opening day victory at Arsenal, Paul Lambert’s men lost narrowly against high-flying Liverpool and Chelsea before a home defeat to Newcastle, but got back to winning ways at Carrow Road.
Having stretched this season’s competitive record to seven wins in eight and four in five in the Premier League at Cardiff on Sunday, we now face a third round tie and 7.45pm kick-off at Villa Park.
“Villa is a difficult game with a team on the back of the motivation of a great result against Norwich,” said Andre.
“They have some wonderfully gifted footballers coming through, still learning and that’s why I value Paul Lambert’s work even more.
“The amount of players he has brought through is something remarkable, with results too.
“They are a tough team to play against, but we will be strong and will do our best.”
