Aston Villa remain dangerously close to the Premier League relegation zone and they will be eager to return to winning ways this weekend following a hugely disappointing defeat on the south coast last time out.
Aston Villa v Tottenham Hotspur: 2 pm, Sunday 16th February, Villa Park. Sky Sports
Tottenham Hotspur boast an excellent head-to-head record against Aston Villa with the North Londoners winning 13 of the last 15 meetings between the two sides and Aston Villa losing 7 of the last seven to nil. Indeed Spurs have avoided defeat in their last nine trips to Villa Park and on this evidence, we’ll be siding with Jose Mourinho’s men to grab their third win on the bounce across competitions when they head to the West Midlands on Sunday afternoon.
Tottenham Hotspur suffered a setback in their top-four bid after Christmas when they hit some disappointing form, however they now appear to have got themselves back on track and have narrowed the gap between themselves and fourth-placed Chelsea to just four points. Their recent improvement couldn’t have been more timely given that they will be up against RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League last-sixteen clash on Tuesday evening.
Aston Villa have made it through to the final of the Carabao Cup although one cannot help but feel that they will be in for a hammering given that their opponents are Manchester City. Nevertheless they cannot allow this distraction to affect their efforts as they bid to keep themselves in the Premier League for more than a single season.
Aston Villa are far better at home than they are on their travels this season but they remain very much in the dogfight at the bottom end of the Premier League table and while we envisage them getting onto the scoresheet this weekend, we anticipate the hosts coming off second best on the day.
Back Spurs to win and both teams to score at 12/5 with Betway Bookmakers.
