Tottenham host Aston Villa in the Premier League on Wednesday as Ryan Mason's side look to consolidate their place in the top six.

Spurs are currently sixth in the league, tied on points with West Ham in seventh and four points behind Liverpool in fifth.

Mason's side have been inconsistent of late, having won three of their last five league games. It looks like Tottenham will need to win their final two games of the season if they are to qualify for the UEFA Europa League this season.

Aston Villa have fallen off the pace recently and are currently 11th in the table, four points behind Leeds United in 10th.

Dean Smith's side have been in terrible form of late, winning only two of their last 12 league games. Villa have nothing to play for at this point in the campaign, but will be looking to end their season on a high.

Tottenham have it all to play for on Wednesday, but Aston Villa are sure to prove a tough test for Ryan Mason's side.
