Match Preview

  • Aston Villa’s 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth last time out saw them score for the fifth consecutive Premier League (PL) match. However, they sit just one place above the relegation zone (W7, D4, L14) courtesy of the league’s equal leakiest defence.
  • Encouragingly though, the ‘Villans’ have scored in 91.67% of their home league games, but have not netted in the first half across their last four matches. Furthermore, it has now been eight PL games at Villa Park without a draw, with Dean Smith’s side scoring 68% of their total points at home (W5, D2, L5).
  • Tottenham Hotspur, meanwhile, are up to sixth in the table after a run of 11 points since Christmas, with none of their eight goals in this period coming before the 35th minute. A 2-0 win over Manchester City in their last PL match made it three league games unbeaten.
  • Despite scoring in 75% of their league away games this season, ‘Spurs’ have found the going tough away from home so far. The Londoners are winless in three PL away games, failing to score in their last two, while keeping a PL clean sheet just once on their travels all season long.
  • Players to watch: Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish has scored seven goals this PL campaign, with the last four coming between the 40th-75th minutes of play.
  • Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son returned from suspension to score two goals in as many league games. Both strikes came after the 70th-minute mark, and ‘Spurs’ are unbeaten whenever he has scored in the PL this term!
  • Stat attack: Villa are particularly vulnerable late on, conceding 21 times in the last 30 minutes of PL matches so far.
  • The hosts have led at the break in 33.33% of their home league games this term.
  • Tottenham lead the PL H2H stakes (W20, D15, L14), with that sequence including wins in the last three meetings.
