Premier League Preview for Aston Villa v Tottenham along with Predictions for every result in the EPL. Follow up each match with results and video highlights posted later in the week.
Aston Villa’s fine start to the new season has continued over their past few matches as they have been working to solidify their tactics. They are currently in tenth place in the Premier League table following wins over Norwich and Manchester City as well as their week 7 0-0 draw away to Hull City.
Tottenham may have strengthened in the offseason, but they have been struggling to convert their many chances into actual goals. They have an average of 19 shots per game yet have only scored six goals this season. They have only allowed five goals and that tally is only so high following their week 7 0-3 defeat to West Ham.
My prediction is a Tottenham win. This is one international break that I think will benefit Tottenham more than Aston Villa. This could be the weekend that they really turn things around and get going.
It could also be the weekend that things go horribly wrong. Aston Villa has already put in some solid matches in losses to Chelsea and Liverpool as well as a 3-2 win over Manchester City at home. Tottenham are still favorites, but if they do not start to actually convert their chances, their focus on attack will leave them exposed like it did against West Ham.
Betting Odds: Aston Villa win: 3.91-4.08; Draw: 3.49-3.60; Tottenham win: 1.93-2.06
Form: Aston Villa (L, L, L, W, W, D) Tottenham (W, L, W, W, D, L)
