Poor Clark looked rather unsteady there. Hope it's nothing serious. Need him.

Nice!!!! Benteke has really shown us what he can do lately. Glad he was able to make something happen out of that.

Fingers crossed we don't switch off at the back like we do usually at the wrong times....

Good first half. Benteke took his goal well. Gabby was very unlucky with his chance.

Sanchez really needs to book his ideas up - still a liability. Felt we got lucky when Delph, Sanchez, Baker and Bacuna all slid in and they walked through our side.

However, its half time and we are winning 1-0. Job well done.. SO FAR.

Its vital now that TS reminds the players of Tuesday night - they need to come out and be better than they was that first half if we are to see this through. Spurs wont be that bad in the second half.

Spurs have dominated in truth, Richardson started poor but has gradually improved but i am still nervy about our defence. Whenever Benteke scores he becomes such a strong confident player. We need to concentrate and hit this poor spurs defence on the counter

Grealish just cant get in the game as we are counter attacking, does not suit his style. N'Zogbia much better suited to this game

Baker being Left footed and a natural left sided CB, Okore is a right sided CB

We look dangerous whenever we go forward. Great ball by Bacuna and fantastic header by Benteke to give us the lead. I thought Gabby was unlucky and it was great effort when he hit the post. I slate Gabby time and time again, all I want from him is to show that each week. It is simply using his pace, he doesn't need a brain for that.

I feel we are still weak at the back and look like conceding as much as we do scoring. Turned into a complete shambles towards the end of that first half. It sort of worked with Vlaar and Clark because Clark will sit and sweep up whenever Vlaar goes AWOL and runs out of position. Problem now being Baker tends to do the same as Vlaar, as we saw when both dived in 30 yards out leaving us severely under pressure.

Think Cleverley has played well, as always, and also think Grealish takes so much pressure off our back four. He wins free kicks or plays a simple one two and defence turns to attack. I want to see him starting consistently.

One of the best 1st half for villa for this year. Just don't play for a draw.

I think Spurs have been poor - as they were at burnley .

Villa the better team for me so far without doubt.

Don't think Sherwood would ever play for a draw - not in his DNA .
