Spurs have been drawn to play at home against Aston Villa in the Third Round of the FA Cup.
The tie will be played at some point across the weekend of January 6th – 9th and is likely to be considered for television coverage.
Villa made a poor start to life in the Championship but have been climbing the table since Steve Bruce was appointed as manager. They look likely to give a good test to what will probably be a second-string Tottenham side.
Here’s how fans reacted to the draw on Twitter.

One thing for certain about Spurs game. We'll put up hell of a better fight of it this season compared to last seasons embarrassment. #avfc

Quite happy about Villa at home. We'll probably win and it will enable me to mock Steve Bruce's country vegetable head once more. #COYS

Spurs away in the cup, I would say let the giant killing commence but I don't think they will beat us#avfc
