One thing we can say about Ryan Mason's short run as Tottenham Hotspur manager is that things are certainly not dull.
Goals - either for or against - have been aplenty since the former player replaced Jose Mourinho.
Unlike his predecessor, Mason isn't afraid to utilities his main attacking talents all at once. But while this makes his side dangerous up front, it also leaves gaps at the back. All thing's considered; we could be in for an intriguing game here.
With Jack Grealish back in the team, the Villains will be looking to dominate in midfield and utilise Matt Target down the left flank.
Dean Smith's side certainly have the necessary tools to get the better of their opponents and end their six-year run without a win over Spurs.
Last Three Premier League Matches
Aston Villa 0-2 Tottenham (March 21, 2021)
Tottenham won all three points in their last meeting with the Villains.
A first-half goal from Carlos Vinicius put Jose Mourinho's side in control before a second-half penalty from Harry Kane made sure of the win.
This was a disappointing outing from Villa who only mustered one shot on target.
Aston Villa 2-3 Tottenham (February 16, 2020)
Viewers were treated to a classic when Aston Villa hosted Spurs back in 2020.
Toby Alderweireld's own goal put the hosts ahead in the ninth minute. However, the Spurs centre-back made up for his error with an equaliser twenty minutes later.
Heung-Min Son put Spurs ahead just before the interval, but that lead didn't last long. Villa's Bjorn Engels made it 2-2 shortly after the restart as both teams searched for the winner.
The game seemed to be heading towards a draw until a 94th minute winner from Son sealed the three points for Mourinho's men.
Tottenham 3-1 Aston Villa (August 10, 2019)
Villa's struggles against Spurs didn't end at Villa Park. Dean Smith's side suffered similar disappointments away at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Back in 2019, Spurs picked up a comprehensive 3-1 victory in London.
John McGinn opened the scoring for the Villains however, three second-half goals from Spurs earned them three big points.
Tanguy Ndombele's strike in the 73rd minute was followed by a four-minute Harry Kane brace.

Six years of hurt for Villa
In order to find Aston Villa's last victory over Tottenham you have to go back all the way to 2015.
Since then, Spurs have won this fixture six consecutive times - averaging two and a half goals in the process.
Looking at this fixture over a longer period of time, the stats don't get any better. Villa have only recorded one win over Spurs in 20 games - a run that stretches back all the way to 2008.
Tottenham's European dream
As things stand, Tottenham are currently sixth in the Premier League standings. This is enough to secure them a place in next season's Europa League.
The trouble is that West Ham - who are seventh but have the same number of points - could overtake them should Spurs fail to win their last remaining two games.
The pressure is certainly on. Anything other than a top six finish would be a disaster for a club like Tottenham.
There's been a lot of talk about Harry Kane's future over the last few days.
However, the one thing that cannot be questioned is his talent on the field.
We're backing Kane to get amongst the goals first against Villa at the price of 3/1 with Unibet.
