Tottenham winger Bale wary of Villa backlash

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale doesn't believe Aston Villa's thrashing by Chelsea will be a factor today.

Bale has a lot of respect for the young Villa team manager Paul Lambert is shaping.

"Paul Lambert has done really well, he's built a new team and they are gelling together well and starting to play some good stuff now," Bale told the Spurs website.

"It will be difficult, as it always is at Villa Park, but it's a game we're looking forward to and we'll aim to get the three points."
