Tottenham v Villa media watch [AM]: Papers begin Spurs countdown


Birmingham Mail: Gabby Agbonlahor admits he faces a battle to keep his place in Villa's strikeforce with competition intensifying ahead of Sunday's trip to Spurs. Agbonlahor and Christian Benteke led the line in last weekend's 1-1 draw with West Brom at Villa Park after starring at Manchester City.

Birmingham Mail: Marc Albrighton is ready to become Villa's flexible friend to earn a place among Paul Lambert's wingless wonders. Lambert's systems so far have tended to rely on a narrow midfield without wingers, with full-backs providing the attacking width.

Birmingham Mail: Any more team selection headaches and Paul Lambert should look for a sponsorship deal with Paracetamol. Fortunately, it is another welcome dilemma for the manager as the dust settles on last weekend's Bent-gate episode.

Sporting Life: Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is fit for Tottenham's Premier League game against Aston Villa on Sunday after recovering from a hamstring injury. Andre Villas-Boas is expected to recall Brad Friedel in goal despite a solid performance from his understudy Hugo Lloris in Thursday's Europa League draw against Panathinaikos.
