The Spurs players and backroom staff including Antonio Conte have arrived at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium ahead of this afternoon’s match against Aston Villa.

Conte’s side begin the 2023 calendar year with the visit of Unai Emery’s Villa to north London with the pressure firmly on Tottenham to secure all three points with the race for a top four place already hotly contested among a number of teams.

The home support will be expecting to see a significantly improved start to the match than what has been witnessed over recent months with their side chasing matches and relying on significantly improved second half performances to get something out of a game.

Among the players spotted arriving at the stadium were Harry Kane, Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal.

Tottenham have won 12 of their last 14 Premier League games against Aston Villa (L2), as many as they had in their first 40 against them in the competition (D15 L13).
