Manager Unai Emery has his work cut out improving his side defensively and Aston Villa will be willing to test them just as they did north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Villa have their own issues too and failed to capitalise on a man advantage against West Ham United on Monday night, with a result now needed to keep them away from the relegation zone and boost their confidence.
