|Martin O’Neill has Spurs in his sights as he leads Villa into battle when Sunderland visit on Wednesday night.
The manager believes the race to finish fourth is still there to be won and lost – but knows his side can’t afford to drop too many more home points after the weekend’s draw with Wolves.

A Villa win in this one would leave them just two points behind fourth-placed Spurs and O'Neill said: ‘We would be only two points behind Tottenham if we beat Sunderland and we are desperate to try and win the game against a rejuvenated Sunderland. The consequences are that we could close the gap again.’
O'Neill told Sky Sports his squad are going to be pushed to the limit as they battle for success in the Premier League and FA Cup.
‘At this stage of the season it is to be expected that players are feeling injuries and we do have one or two problems. We are now coming to the end of March and the season is hotting up. We will probably have to make a few changes over the next couple of games but that must be expected.
‘We may have lost a little ground in the league but there are going to be a lot of twists and turns in the remaining games.’
