Paul Lambert predicts a "great game" as Villa come up against Tottenham in the third round of the Capital One Cup.
Lambert reacted to the draw, which took place immediately after the 3-0 win over Rotherham at Villa Park on Wednesday.
Villa boss Lambert accepts it will be a tough encounter but thinks it will be a superb occasion, with the claret and blues backed by a big crowd.
He said: "Any cup game you get, you want to be at home.
"But we're up against a top, top side.
"Andre has some top players but that's what you have to come up against.
"It will be a great game. I am pretty sure the stadium will be full or not far off it."
The tie will be played the week commencing September 23.
