ASTON VILLA V TOTTENHAM MATCH PREVIEW

Home » ASTON VILLA V TOTTENHAM MATCH PREVIEW

Aston Villa hover above the relegation zones after earning ten points from a possible 33 in their last 11 league games, and will come under severe scrutiny when Tottenham come to town.

Premier League 2019/2020
Date: Sunday 16th, February
Kick-off: 15:00 pm
Venue: Villa Park
TV Channel: Sky Sports

Villa were beaten 2-1 by ten-man Bournemouth just before they went into the winter break, their 14th loss of the league season: only rock-bottom Norwich (15) have lost more.

January signing Mbwana Samatta scored what proved to be a consolation in that game, as Dean Smith’s side toiled to break down their resilient opposition who had Jefferson Lerma sent off.

The hosts look to struggle when up against the bigger teams in the division, and have lost to all of the teams currently in the top six. Surely, they would need a lot more to get the better of Spurs who are unbeaten in all of their last six games.

Tottenham claimed an impressive 2-0 victory over Manchester City in their last league game before then coming from behind to beat Southampton 3-2 in their FA Cup replay clash.

Jose Mourinho will thus demand his wards continue to push towards a Champions League qualification spot with another rousing display here, with just four points now all that separates them from fourth.

Tottenham have won their last two league games versus Norwich and Manchester City. Son Heung-Min has scored in all their last four games too. Tottenham’s last five league games (LLDWW)

Suggested bets

Tottenham are raring to go at the moment, and showed some brilliant attacking football in the last couple of their matches, particularly the win over City. With Champions League football all that is left to chase now, it is hard to envisage they ‘d be dropping points in games such like this one. Punters can thus, take an outright win for the Jose Mourinho’s side at 20/23.

Son has been a source of goals for the visitors recently and can be backed at 11/10 to score anytime, or 4/1 to open the scoring.
