Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is set to make sweeping changes to his line-up for Tuesday night's Capital One Cup clash with Tottenham at Villa Park.

Gabriel Agbonlahor and Antonio Luna are almost certain to sit out after returning from injury problems in Saturday's Barclays Premier League win at Norwich.

Jed Steer is set to replace Brad Guzan in goal and there are also expected to be starting places for the likes of Nicklas Helenius and Yacouba Sylla.

Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas will also ring the changes for Tuesday's Capital One Cup clash at Aston Villa.

Villas-Boas has expressed his frustration that the fixture takes place just two days after their Premier League win in Cardiff, and very few who featured in south Wales are likely to start at Villa Park.

The likes of Brad Friedel, Erik Lamela, Lewis Holtby, Sandro and Vlad Chiriches could all start, but Jermain Defoe is a doubt due to a groin strain.

Provisional squads:

Aston Villa: Steer, Guzan, Baker, Bennett, Vlaar, Clark, Luna, Lowton, Bacuna, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Herd, Sylla, Tonev, Helenius, Weimann, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Bowery, Kozak.

Spurs: Lloris, Friedel, Gomes, Walker, Naughton, Dawson, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Chiriches, Fryers, Sandro, Dembele, Eriksen, Paulinho, Holtby, Townsend, Chadli, Sigurdsson, Lamela, Soldado, Defoe, Kane, Coulibaly, Dawkins.
