Villa's back three on several occasions - they now climb above the West Midlands outfit in the table.
Meanwhile, when they reconvene after the international break, Spurs will visit Newcastle in search of back-to-back wins, while Villa must wait for a fortnight before meeting Wolves in a Midlands derby.
