Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa Prediction: Premier League Match on 03.10.2021
The pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo is rising with every game that Spurs are playing in the Premier League. A win must be recorded this weekend against Aston Villa in their final fixture before the international break.
Premier League Preview
What a difference a couple of weeks makes in the Premier League. Spurs went into the round of fixtures following the first international break at the top of the league table with the only 100% record. However, since play restarted, Spurs have lost each of their last three and have dropped into the bottom half of the standings. The pressure on Santo in the Spurs dugout is high, as they have conceded three goals in each of their last three fixtures. Last weekend’s North London derby was a shocking performance by Tottenham, as they failed to lay a glove on Arsenal in the first half, trailing 3-0 at the break. They did at least win the second half as Heung Min-Son found the net, but that counts for very little in the great scheme of things. Spurs were at least able to get a win on Thursday night against Mura in the Europa Conference League, with Harry Kane scoring a hat-trick in the final half an hour.
Aston Villa could move up to fifth in the league standings this weekend if they are able to get a win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Dean Smith’s side have started the new season in fairly decent form, winning three of the six games that they have played. They claimed a very famous win last weekend, as they triumphed over Manchester United at Old Trafford, winning 1-0 at the Theatre of Dreams. Kourtney Hause scored the only goal in the win, and they will be hoping to build on that success this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa Head to Head
Spurs have a good record against Villa in the Premier League, as they have won ten of their last 12 fixtures. However, both defeats that they have suffered have come in home fixtures, including their 2-1 defeat against the Villa last season. The travelling side will be looking for back-to-back away wins against Spurs for the first time in over ten years.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa Prediction
It has been a terrible run of form for the hosts coming into this fixture. Villa have all the tools to make this a damaging weekend for Spurs, and we could see them inflicting a fourth straight league defeat on Tottenham.
