BETTING & MATCH PREDICTION
On Sunday afternoon, Tottenham host Aston Villa at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium looking to not make it four losses in a row.
After kicking off Nuno Espirito Santo’s spell in charge with three straight Premier League wins, Spurs suffered a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal last weekend, making it worrying times for the London club.
Spurs have scored just four goals this season and are bottom of all the shooting stats in the league. Harry Kane is yet to score in the league and doesn’t seem to be thriving under the new manager.
Despite all this though, Spurs still have a good side on paper and are capable of doing a lot better. They need a big result here to get their season back on track and to take some of the pressure off of Nuno.
Dean Smith’s side made it two wins in two last weekend away to Man United. They won 1-0 thanks to a header from Hause in the 87th minute but were let off when Bruno put his 92nd-minute penalty over the bar.
Villa have gone to a back five of late and it is proving to be a good change. They are hard to beat and can play on the counter-attack which suits their players very well.
Against Spurs, we expect a similar setup to the previous game. They will invite the pressure on and look to use Ings and Watkins on the counter. A draw away to Spurs is a good result despite their form but Dean Smith will fancy his side’s chances.
Tottenham will be without Bergwijn and Sessegnon is a doubt.
Sanson, Bailey, Trezeguet and Davies are all out for Villa.
These are two sides in opposite runs of form. We think though they will cancel each other and it’ll end all square.
