Aston Villa hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the Villa Park in a match from the 26th round
Aston Villa hosts Tottenham Hotspur at the Villa Park in a match from the 26th round of the Premier League. Here are our usual English Premier League predictions for this fixture in the city of Birmingham.
For Aston Villa the remaining rounds of the league will be nothing, but a race for survival. At this moment the former European champions are not in the best possible situation, being 17th in the standings with just 25 points. This makes Villa being at just one point above West Ham United and the relegation zone. For the manager Dean Smith and his boys every point won until May is going to be more than crucial.
In the previous round Aston Villa suffered their 14th defeat when they faced AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. Twenty minutes before the end Mbwana Samatta scored for Villa, but before this the Cherries have already scored twice. In the 51th minute Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma got sent off, but even with a man more on the pitch Aston Villa didn’t avoid the defeat.
Tottenham Hotspur will travel to Birmingham with the only thought of winning. Spurs are aware that if they want to reach the Champions League again, they have to give their all in the remaining few months until the end of the campaign. Right now Tottenham are 6th in the league with 37 points won and a record of 10 wins, 7 draws and 8 losses.
Lately Jose Mourinho’s team started to step up as Spurs won their last two games in the Premier League against Norwich City and Manchester City. Against City one of the goals was scored by the new signing from the Netherlands Steven Bergwijn, who showed some promise for the future.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the match between Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Tottenham are in a good shape lately, so let’s see if they can make it three in a row.
