Two sides at contrasting ends of the Premier League table will meet the weekend, with Aston Villa desperately looking to get the points that they need to pull themselves away from the relegation places. Meanwhile, Spurs will be looking for a third win in a row.
Aston Villa have been one of the best teams to watch this season, and they have one of the stars of the season within their ranks in Jack Grealish, but the imminent threat of relegation still hangs over their head. They are currently outside of the bottom three, but a defeat this weekend could see them end the round in 18th place. They have won twice in their past five league games, with their last win coming in their most recent home game against Watford. However, their last outing in the league ended in a damaging 2-1 defeat away from home against Bournemouth. This will be a much bigger test, but they will feel that they will have a decent chance of getting something with their noisy home support behind them.

The Jose Mourinho revolution looks to be in full swing in North London now, as Spurs have won their last two games in the Premier League. They are also unbeaten in three, and a win this weekend could move them within a point of the top four. However, the previous meeting between the sides will highlight that Spurs will need to work hard for the win, as they trailed for much of the meeting earlier in the season. Tottenham’s last win in the Premier League game against Manchester City, as Steven Bergwijn and Heung Min-Son, scored the goals. If they can make it three wins in a row, then they will have an excellent chance of achieving their European finish.
Head To Head
Spurs hold the advantage in the overall record between the two sides as they have recorded 73 wins. Villa have won on 56 occasions, while there have been 35 draws. Aston Villa hasn’t beaten Tottenham since their 1-0 victory in April 2015.
Aston Villa vs Spurs Prediction
This could be a potential banana skin for Tottenham, as Villa do have the players that can hurt them. However, if they are able to keep Jack Grealish quiet, then Spurs should have enough in the final third to get the three points.
Tip: Tottenham Hotspur.
