Is your New Years resolution a hope to see Aston Villa possibly get hammered on live television against superior Premier League opposition? Well, you likely won’t be waiting long!

Aston Villa travel to White Hart Lane, or wherever Tottenham are deciding to play football games this year, in the Third Round of The FA Cup on Sunday the 8th of January 2017 and the game will be live on BBC One with the match kicking off at 4pm local time.

Aston Villa’s chances of success in the competition are slim, but there’s the outlier here of that ‘ol FA Cup magic and it might just be Villa’s turn to be sprinkled with it. If a morale-stricken Villa can get to the final of the greatest cup competition in the world (TM) under Tim Sherwood, then surely they can win the damn thing with Steve Bruce.

They’ll have to get past Tottenham Hotspur first, though.
