Aston Villa vs Tottenham Match Preview
Aston Villa returned home empty-handed from their last outing against Bournemouth, after the latter edged past them with a 2-1 scoreline. Despite showing promise post the restart in that game, the hosts failed to grab a timely equalizer and ultimately succumbed to defeat at the end of the ninety minutes.
Miserably, the home team have just one win to boast of from their last four games in the league, garnering no more than four points from a possible twelve. As of now, Aston Villa are just a point shy of falling into the relegation zone.
On the other hand, Tottenham pulled off a stunning 2-0 win over Manchester City in their most recent clash in the Premier League. Even though the visitors were without the services of talisman Harry Kane in that fixture, Jose Mourinho’s men dominated the entire clash, and found the back of the net through Steven Bergwjin and Heung Min Son.
The guests are currently sitting sixth on the ladder with thirty-seven points to their name. A win this week could potentially see them break back into the top five.
Aston Villa vs Tottenham Prediction
Aston Villa have been erratic, to say the least, in their recent clashes at home. In fact, they have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past four matchups here and have dropped points in seven of their previous twelve as well.
Meanwhile, Tottenham have stumbled just twice in their past seven outings on the trot. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been coping well in their previous visits to this stadium. Impressively, the guests have secured the bragging rights in each of their last five meetings with this foe here.
Given the evident difference in stature of the teams involved as well, it is certainly well within reason to count on Tottenham to pick up the win this week.
Furthermore, the visiting contingent have been found napping at back far too many times on the road. Disappointingly they have kept a clean sheet just once away from home in the Premier League, that too against the dismal Watford.
In addition, Aston Villa have scored a goal at the least in each of their previous nine games here. As such, expect both teams to find the back of the net together in this one.
