Young-sters doubts for Spurs test

Aston Villa will be without Luke Young for Tottenham's visit on Boxing Day, while Ashley Young remains a doubt.

Defender Luke Young is struggling with hip and groin problems and has been restricted to light training, with boss Gerard Houllier now admitting it is unlikely he will feature.

Winger Ashley Young could feature but it appears unlikely as he is suffering from a knee complaint, although Houllier will give him every opportunity to prove his fitness.

"Luke Young I don't think will be involved," Houllier told the Birmingham Mail. "Ashley is touch and go for the moment. We don't know. He hasn't trained with the team yet so we will see today.

"I thought he would be ready a bit earlier but it's a medial ligament so we don't want to take risks. If you ask me I would say I doubt he will make it."
