Tottenham U21 v Villa U21 team news: Senior trio in action

By Dan Harrison

Ashley Westwood, Chris Herd and Nathan Baker are all in action tonight as Villa take on Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays U21 Premier League.

The trio will all get some game time under their belts in the clash at White Hart Lane, which kicks off at 7pm.

There are also starts for Samir Carruthers, Graham Burke and Daniel Johnson, while deadline day signing Jordan Bowery gets another opportunity to impress.

Gordon Cowans takes charge of the young claret and blues side as they look to build on an unbeaten start to the campaign.

After winning their opening clash against Stoke City in the new league competition, Villa earned back-to-back draws against Southampton.

Villa got the upper hand over Spurs on Saturday when the two clubs met in the Barclays U18 Premier League.

Jack Grealish inspired Villa to a 4-2 victory at Bodymoor Heath.

The 17-year-old winger scored twice in an excellent display, while Jordan Graham and Charlie Ward also got on the scoresheet.

Villa will be hoping for a repeat tonight in the U21 league.

The contest serves as a fascinating precursor to Sunday's first team clash between the two clubs on the same ground.

AVTV will be bringing you live audio commentary from the clash, while there will also be live interactive text updates.

VILLA: Siegrist, Herd, Devine, Baker, Williams, Carruthers, Westwood, Johnson, Stieber, Burke, Bowery. Subs: Barton, Barrett, Cameron, Drennan, Grealish.
