CHANCE! Heaton clears an Eriksen throughball poorly. It lands at the feet of Lamela, but the excellent Mings is there to clear.
What a block by Mings to deny Kane. Jack Grealish appears to be fouled without the referee watching...

Relief here as Eriksen replaces Winks for Spurs.
Quick VAR check for a possible red card against McGinn for a foul on Walker-Peters. Cleared.

Here's the first sub of the day, made by Villa. Jota coming on for Trezeguet.

- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME! Villa lead 1-0 at the break.
One added minute as Kane shoots wide one on one, but he was offside.
CHANCE! Kane heads over from close range after an Ndombele cross. Seemed a tough one to control, but he should do better.
Villa try to break quickly with Greaklish searching for Trezeguet, but a brilliant challenge by Harry Winks stops them.
Again, for the third time, Sissoko fails to take advantage of space on the right. The chance to cross was there but he took too long and a heavy touch saw Taylor dispossess him.
CHANCE! First real sight of goal for Kane over half an hour in, which tells a story. His drive is well tipped over by Heaton.
Villa break again through Grealish, who held his pass to Trezeguet. The Egyptian didn't look as though he knew what he wanted to do and shoots tamely at Lloris.
Here's a look at McGinn's opener for Villa.
El Ghazi gains a free kick in a great position after Sissoko brings him down. It looked soft, but is cleared and Spurs can break.
Lovely run by Trezeguet catches Rose out, but there is nobody in the box waiting for the cross. Spurs throw.
Lovely skill by Rose down the left, but again Villa stand tall when the cross comes in. Spurs aren't doing enough; Kane barely involved at all.
CHANCE! Trezeguet sees a shot blocked, but what about the pass from McGinn? Lovely weighted ball almost unlocked the Egyptian. Still 1-0.
Sissoko sees two crosses cleared as Spurs look to put pressure on. They are stepping it up, but Villa are looking compact so far,
Worrying for Villa, John McGinn was down, but after treatment, he's back.
Sniff of a chance for Kane, but Mings does enough to put him off.
Spurs are understandably shellshoccked here. Sissoko tries a through ball but it comes to nothing.
- GoalJohn McGinnAston Villa
GOOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL! Completely against the run of play, John McGinn gives Villa the lead! Mings' long ball bamboozles Rose, the Scot keeps his composure with a great finish. 0-1.
Bizarrely, Lamela shoots. What a waste.
Free kick in a great position for Spurs after Neil Taylor fouls Kyle Walker-Peters.
CHANCE! Again, Spurs threaten on the left as Rose's cross finds Lucas. He heads straight at Heaton, trying to find the corner. Good start for the hosts.
Spurs look to get in down the left again, with Alderweireld finding Danny Rose, but his cross was straight at Heaton. Villa need to watch that.
Straight away there is a chance for Lucas Moura, who drives in from the left and shoots over.
Here we go! Villa get us underway here!
There is a minute's applause for Justin Edinburgh, former Spurs player and Leyton Orient boss, who died this summer. RIP.
The players are entering the pitch, handshakes underway. Five minutes until kick off.
Here's Poch's full pre-match thoughts.
NO injury for Vertonghen, says Poch. Tactical choice is the reason he isn't involved.
15 MINUTES until kick off. What is everyone thinking?
Aston Villa need to aim for survival this season, but it should be remembered that they are the FIFTH highest spenders in Europe. It'll be very interesting to see how they'll get on.
Is this the best time for Villa to play Spurs? A weakened home side without Alli, Vertonghen, Eriksen and Son. A few surprising results today... any chance of a shock? The visitors are something of an unknown quantity.

Spurs are starting their first full season at their new stadium. All the talking will stop soon...

If you're a Villa fan, you have to be excited to see Jack Grealish captaining the club this afternoon. He and John McGinn will be a threat today. How will Wesley get on?

As you can see, there are FOUR debutants for Villa today. Tom Heaton, Egyptian winger Trezeguet, Wesley and Bjorn Engels make their bows. Now Jan Vertonghen for Spurs, while wantaway Christian Eriksen is on the bench. Tanguy Ndombele starts, Dele Alli out with a hamstring problem.
Here is Dean Smith's first Premier League XI...
