Aston Villa have been drawn against Tottenham for the next round of the Capital One cup. Aston Villa beat Rotherham 3-0 last night after Weimann, Benteke and Delph all scored to secure Aston Villa an advance to the next round of the Capital One cup. Aston Villa will play at home yet again, but will host Tottenham. Tottenham automatically qualified into the third round due to their top 5 finish in the Premier League.
Tottenham will be much tougher opponents and it’s not only because they play in the top flight, they are signing some of the hottest players in Europe, and are definitely making the most out of Gareth Bales’ hugely inflated price-tag.
Still, it should be a good encounter and I hope that Spurs don’t take the tie too seriously, and focus their attention on the Premier League and Europa League.
