Jordan set for Aston Villa exit

Aston Villa manager Remi Garde has been in charge since November but has failed to lift them off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League.

Spurs are flying high in second place in the Premier League table and cut Leicester's lead at the top to two points with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Aston Villa at the weekend.

England travel to France to contest the European Championship in June as they bid to win the tournament for the first time in their history.

Previously I've stated we need to focus on our players who will be willing and passionate next season, and it's the youngsters who are going to rebuild Aston Villa.

"There was a lot of talk at the start of the season but the top players in the world find a way to get around (challenges) and score 20 or 30 goals, season after season", Kane said.

Pochettino opted to name a weakened team for the last 16 first leg tie in Germany on Thursday, omitting Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Mousa Dembele and Kyle Walker while Dele Alli was suspended. "His part in the first goal was the key moment in the game because we had created so many opportunities in the first half". Fouled by Villa midfielder Idrissa Gana, Alli looked up at once and released the free-kick across the pitch to Kane, who held off Alan Hutton and slotted the ball low across Brad Guzan and inside the far corner. Pochettino was delighted that after a recent problematic run, featuring discouraging defeats in the league at West Ham United and in the Europa League at Borussia Dortmund, his side had regained their momentum. In all difficulties, we are still alive and we still believe we can win enough games to be safe. We are in the race and if we compare last season to this season we need to feel very proud of our players.

"I'm very happy to be where I am now". A penny for their thoughts as Villa's owner and Tom Fox, the club's chief executive officer, came under fire.

"But I have to say the reaction of the players and the attitude was right". It will be hard for Tottenham to win then title but it is not impossible as they are the nearest team to Leicester City. "I saw he has physical ability to make him very close to the standard I require for Premier League football".

A Harry Kane double separated the sides, with Villa denied by the woodwork twice late on through Jordan Ayew and Joleon Lescott as Garde's men searched for a way back into the game.
