Premier League: 3 Things to Look Forward to Aston Villa Host Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham take on Aston Villa in the league as the Londoners look to get closer to the top four spots. Spurs have won their last two matches in the league and would like to make it three in a row.


Aston Villa, meanwhile, are on 25 points from 25 matches and are just a point above the drop zone, which makes it essential for them to win this match. With that in mind, here are the three things to look forward to from this match.

3. Almost full-strength


Tottenham are almost surely going to play with their full-strength side, save for Harry Kane. The Englishman is currently out injured and won’t be back until the end of the season.


However, Spurs can play Heung-min Son as the striker with Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura flanking him. Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Winks and Giovanni Lo Celso could be in the centre to make it the best possible Spurs team on paper. 

2. Jack Grealish magic


Jack Grealish’s first season in English top-flight has proven one thing: he has what it takes to shine at the highest calibre as he has seven goals to his name and has also registered five assists in 23 league matches for his side. 


He has been impressive in almost all games for Villa, which is why it would be interesting to see how he fares up against the north Londoners in this match. 

1. Important points at stake


Spurs have been incredibly inconsistent over the course of the season. They have dropped points against teams that they shouldn’t have had any trouble to begin with.


Villa are currently battling relegation and Spurs should be winning this match. But we have seen how the Lilywhites have bottled such matches and it would be interesting to see whether they do the same thing tonight or not.
