Aston Villa vs Tottenham Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips


An exciting contest is on the cards as Aston Villa host Tottenham Hotspur in an English Premier League fixture at Villa Park. Spurs have their sights set on a European finish but tend to struggle defensively. Villa also have similar problems which means Sunday’s match is tipped to produce goals.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa suffered a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth in their previous Premier League fixture. They went into the break two goals down before Mbwana Samatta pulled one back.

The Villans are deep in relegation trouble as they sit just one point above the bottom three. Dean Smith’s men are often inconsistent, even at Villa Park having suffered four defeats in their last seven home matches. 

Villa have one of the worst defences in the Premier League and have been on the receiving end of some heavy home defeats this season. Among their recent results at Villa Park is a 6-1 defeat to Manchester City while Leicester City also claimed a 4-1 victory at Villa Park.

Aston Villa News


Aston Villa have a lengthy injury list led by striker Wesley and goalkeeper Tom Heateon who are both out for the rest of the season. Jed Steer, Danny Drinkwater, John McGinn and Keinan Davis are also set to miss Sunday’s match through injury.

Tottenham Form


Tottenham are coming off a 3-2 victory over Southampton in the FA Cup. They came from behind to win thanks to second half goals from Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min.

Spurs were also victorious in their previous EPL fixture as they beat Man City 2-0 with Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-Min getting the goals. Jose Mourinho’s men have won three of their last four matches in all competitions and are back in the race for a top four finish. 

The one criticism for Spurs is in defence where they have kept just one clean sheet in their last 19 Premier League away matches. 

Tottenham News


Striker Harry Kane and midfielder Moussa Sissoko are long term absentees and are ruled out of Sunday’s match. Giovani Lo Celso, Ben Davis and Erik Lamela are also nursing various injuries and should miss the trip to Villa Park.

Aston Villa vs Tottenham Head to Head


Tottenham have a 64-49 advantage with 42 draws from 145 previous matches against Aston Villa. Spurs have won the last four meetings including a 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Harry Kane (2) and Tanguy Ndombele got the goals for Spurs after John McGinn had given Villa the lead. 

Aston Villa vs Tottenham Betting Odds


Aston Villa are outsiders at home with betfair offering 4.33 for a win. A victory for Spurs is valued at 1.90 at Unibet while a draw is set at odds of 3.80. The reverse fixture produced over 3.5 goals which is priced at odds of 2.80 at Betway while William Hill is offering 1.73 for over 2.5 goals. 

Aston Villa vs Tottenham Match Up


Aston Villa’s defensive problems have seen them concede 14 goals in their last five home matches in the Premier League. They are likely to struggle against the pace and movement of Tottenham’s front three.

Tottenham have also been unconvincing at the back this season but often balance things out with their attack. Son Heung-Min has scored in his last four matches and should have support from Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn, who scored on his debut.
