Ollie Watkins to score a goal
It has been a difficult time for Spurs in recent weeks as their performance has suddenly gone off track with two consecutive losses against Chelsea and Wolves respectively. A 2-1 loss in an away game will be a major disappointment for Ange Postecoglou and his boys.
With an average of 59.5% of possession in the ongoing season, Tottenham started the season on a positive note.
However, in the last two losses, the possession stats tell a different story as their average possession was 48.5%. One thing which the club will be happy about is their attack as the Spurs have scored in every fixture they have been part of.
At the same time, the defence has shown their struggles as the club has just 3 clean sheets in 12 games.
Heung Min Son has been an effective striker this season. He has 8 goals and 1 assist on his name. Pedro Porro and Yves Bissouma will be in the spotlight because of their 23.2% and 10.7% shots on target in the ongoing season respectively.
Defender Udogie is set to return after facing a single-match suspension.
Predicted Lineup: Vicario (GK), Dier, Porro, Davies, Royal, Maddison, Bissouma, Kulusevski, Sarr, Son & Johnson
Aston Villa will travel to North London after scoring a win over Fulham by 3-1. Overall, the club has shown an average possession of 57.72% with 6 shots on target and an average of 1.26 goals conceded. The Villians are on an 8-match undefeated streak and they would like to keep things straight against Spurs.
The new season of the Premier League has been positive for Aston Villa with 8 wins and a single draw. They have won 67% of the matches with 17% Clean Sheets this season.
However, The Villains have shown struggles to score goals in away games as they failed to score goals in 33% of the away fixtures.
Ollie Watkins is on fire as he has 11 goals and 5 assists on his name this season. Leon Bailey has also contributed with 6 goals and 6 assists with Lucas Digne and Boubacar Kamara having 8.9% shots on target.
Buendia, Mings and Ramsey are the three injured players and won’t be travelling with the team.
Predicted Lineup: Martínez (GK), Digne, Torres, Konsa, Cash, McGinn, Kamara, Luiz, Zaniolo, Watkins & Diaby
Aston Villa carries an advantage by scoring wins in the last two meetings with Spurs. However, Tottenham will be motivated to get back to winning ways after witnessing two consecutive losses.
Considering the attack of Aston Villa this season, we predict a win for them against Tottenham.
