McGinn to be dropped? Aston Villa predicted XI vs Tottenham Hotspur

Villa will need a big performance to end their three game losing streak against Antonio Conte’s Spurs.

Steven Gerrard has some big decisions ahead of him as he looks to turn Aston Villa’s recent misfortunes around versus Tottenham Hotspur.

Villa are on a three game losing streak for the first time under the former Liverpool captain and things don’t get much easier with an in-form Spurs side up on the horizon.

After a 2-1 defeat to local rivals Wolves last time out, the claret and blue’s season is in danger of petering out and Gerrard is adamant that he will not let that happen.

Big decisions await ahead of the Saturday evening kick-off.

Danny Ings should be back available following the birth of his child and Lucas Digne will also come back into contention.

Morgan Sanson was given a chance last time out whereas Emiliano Buendia remains sat on the bench seemingly just biding his time.

There’s a lot of options with no real clear answers leaving Gerrard with a bit of a headache.

With all that in mind, here’s the eleven we think Villa will start with against Spurs.
