            Aston Villa vs Tottenham Preview, Tips & Stats

            Villa Park hosts Aston Villa and Tottenham in the early Sunday kickoff in the Premier League this weekend. Both sides are in close contention for Champions League football next season, with a win this weekend crucial for that.

            Aston Villa currently sit fourth in the Premier League after 27 games. Villa have 17 wins, four draws and six losses, leaving them on 55 points, six points from third-place Arsenal and five points above Tottenham.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Aston Villa have three wins, one draw and one loss.

            Rasmus Hojlund’s early goal gave Manchester United the lead at halftime but Douglas Luiz equalised for Aston Villa with 20 minutes to go. However, Scott McTominay popped up with a goal in the 86th minute to give United the 2 - 1 win. Aston Villa bounced back against Fulham in their next time out. A brace from Ollie Watkins was enough for Aston Villa, as Rodrigo Muniz’s goal couldn’t stop Villa picking up all three points.

            Another goal from Watkins and a brace from Douglas Luiz gave Villa the 3 - 0 lead, but a goal from Moussa Niakhate in the fifth minute of first half added time got Nottingham Forest on the scoresheet. Morgan Gibbs-White pulled it back to 3 - 2 just minutes into the second half but a goal from Leon Bailey secured the 4 - 2 win for Aston Villa. Watkins grabbed another brace for Villa giving them the 2 - 0 lead, but goals from Tahith Chong and Carlton Morris made it level with 15 minutes to go. However, Lucas Digne grabbed a goal in the 89th minute to give Villa the 3 - 2 win.

            The last time out for Aston Villa was in the Europa Conference League Round of 16 first leg against Ajax. Both Villa and Ajax had a man sent off, Ezri Konsa and Tristan Gooijer, as they had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw.

            Tottenham sit just below Aston Villa in fifth in the Premier League. In 26 games, Spurs have 15 wins, five draws and six losses which leaves them on 50 points, five points behind Aston Villa but six points ahead of Manchester United.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Tottenham have three wins, one draw and one loss.

            Neal Maupay’s early goal gave Brentford the 1 - 0 lead at halftime, but goals from Destiny Udogie and Brennan Johnson gave Tottenham the 2 - 1 lead just minutes into the second half. Richarlison added a third and despite the goal from Ivan Toney, Tottenham held on for the 3 - 2 win. Richarlison grabbed two goals for Spurs against his former team Everton, but Jack Harrison got The Toffees on the scoresheet before halftime. Jarrad Branthwaite then popped up with a goal in the 94th minute to grab a 2 - 2 draw for Everton.

            Tottenham were back to winning ways against Brighton, despite going behind again. Pascal Gross’ penalty gave Brighton the 1 - 0 lead at halftime but goals from Pape Matar Sarr and Johnson in the second half gave Tottenham the 2 - 1 win. However, the next time out saw Tottenham on the wrong side of the 2 - 1 scoreline. Joao Gomes opened the scoring late in the first half but Dejan Kulusevski equalised just one minute into the second half. Another goal from Gomes, however, secured the 2 - 1 win for Wolves.

            The most recent outing for Tottenham was against Crystal Palace. Eberechi Eze put The Eagles ahead but goals from Timo Werner, Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min gave Tottenham the 3 - 1 win.

            Aston Villa and Tottenham have met 173 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1903. Tottenham have a better record in the fixture with 77 wins in comparison to Villa’s 60 wins, the other 36 games ending in a draw.
