Tottenham v Villa: Albrighton hoping for happy Spurs return


By Dan Harrison

Marc Albrighton will never forget his first Barclays Premier League goal against Tottenham Hotspur - but he has vowed to leave White Hart Lane on the winning team this time around.

Albrighton was on target for Villa in north London two seasons ago but the claret and blues went on to lose the game 2-1.

Although he has happy memories of his first top-flight strike, the winger admits he would have sacrificed that special moment for three points.

But the 22-year-old is hopeful of achieving a positive result this weekend.

Albrighton reckons Villa will be buoyed by decent performances against Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion in consecutive matches.

"They've got a great squad that has really gelled and a great manager, so it is going to be a real hard place to go," he said.

"But we're going there on the back of two positive results, so we're full of confidence and we'll look to take all three points.

"I've got great memories of White Hart Lane because you will always remember where you scored your first Premier League goal.

"Although we didn't get the win on the day, which was disappointing, that memory will live forever with me.

"Hopefully we can go there this weekend and we can win.

"I'd much rather not score and get a win then what happened a few years back."
