Villa have a tough spell coming up with their next five fixtures in all competitions seeing them take on Spurs, Southampton, Man City, Leicester and Chelsea.
Defeat on the road at Bournemouth a fortnight ago was a major disappointment, but Dean Smith’s men remain outside the relegation zone, while their previous two outings saw them down both Watford and Leicester 2-1 on home turf in the Premier League and Carabao Cup respectively.
They’ll hope to make that three in a row at Villa Park following this clash, but those wins over the Hornets and the Foxes was just the second time where they’ve strung together back-to-back victories on home turf this season.
Various successes over the past few months have been intermingled with defeats when Liverpool, Leicester, Southampton and Man City came to town, though of course three of those are the clear top three in the league, while the Saints were just entering some form at the time.
Both Aston Villa And Spurs To Score
Whilst Villa shipped 15 goals across those four losses, they still also registered in each of them and as the top scorers amongst the bottom-half of the table, should be aiming to cause their visitors’ backline some hairy moments on Sunday.
Former Spurs target Jack Grealish has been in superb form for the Villans and thoroughly deserves an England call up at this point, while the loss of summer signing Wesley at the turn of the year hasn’t been all defining, with the striker only netting five league goals across the first 21 matches of the campaign anyway.
Jose Mourinho’s side aren’t in the habit of keeping clean sheets either, with just two in 14 appearances since early November in all competitions.
Even low-scoring Championship outfit Middlesbrough managed to net in both FA Cup clashes last month, while both teams have scored in seven of Spurs’ nine meetings with bottom-six outfits this term, including the reverse of this fixture.
Although Spurs appear a fairly short price, this can be explained by the consistency with which the Villans have lost games against top-half outfits.
The hosts have lost eight of their last nine winless such matches in the league, and so while we think they can claim a goal, we wouldn’t be confident of backing Villa to get something from this game.
