OFF THE SHELF: New look to take on Villa

TOTTENHAM face Aston Villa on Sunday in the third round of the FA Cup – and Mauricio Pochettino is set to shuffle the pack with one eye on the club’s Premier League campaign. 

Goalkeeper Michel Vorm, defenders Kevin Wimmer, Ben Davies and Kieran Trippier, midfielder Harry Winks and striker Vincent Janssen are all set to start as the Spurs manager flexes his squad’s muscles against the Championship side.

To ensure that White Hart Lane is a sell-out the club is selling tickets for adults at £10, and under-18s for just £5. 

Meanwhile Harry Kane has praised the contribution made in the team’s 4-1 drubbing of Watford on New Year's Day. 

Trippier deputised for the suspended Kyle Walker and turned in a man-of-the-match display, setting up two goals and proving a constant threat going forward. 

Kane said: “He put a couple of great balls in and I was happy to be in the right place at the right time to finish them off – but it was all down to Trips. 

“Every player wants to be playing but sometimes you have to be patient and wait for your chance, and Trips has taken his. He has shown the manager what he can do. 

“We’ve got competition for the full-back places and that display will give Trips the world of confidence.”
