Tottenham Hotspur’s final home game of the Premier League season takes place on Wednesday, and only a victory will keep alive their hopes of finishing fifth in the league standings. Meanwhile, Villa will be hoping to end the season with a return to form after a commendable campaign.
Premier League Preview
There is no secret that this has been a disappointing campaign for Tottenham Hotspur. Jose Mourinho’s short time in charge of the club came to an end, which has left the job to see out the season on the shoulders of Ryan Mason. The caretaker boss has overseen indifferent results to this point, but two wins to end the season would at least give fans something to build on next season. Spurs come into this game against the Villa in decent form, as they have won three of their last four. They moved ahead of West Ham United in the standings at the weekend, and sixth could be enough for Europa League football next term. Harry Kane was once again among the scorers in their most recent win, as he scored the first in a 2-0 win against Wolves. Kane will be looking to win the golden boot this term, and is currently a goal ahead of Mohamed Salah.
Aston Villa’s Premier League status has been assured for a number of months now, but they have dropped down the standings after an indifferent second half of the season. Many of their problems have centred around the absence of Jack Grealish, who will be in a race against time to prove his fitness to England boss Gareth Southgate. The Villa captain has come off the bench in the club’s last two games, and could be fit enough to start this contest against Spurs. Villa suffered a third defeat in six games last time out against Crystal Palace.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa Head To Head
Aston Villa have a terrible record against Spurs, as they have lost their last six against Tottenham in all competitions. They have conceded at least two goals in five of the previous six defeats. Villa’s last win against Spurs came in the Premier League in April 2015. Spurs won the fixture earlier in the season 2-0.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Aston Villa Prediction
Harry Kane’s race for the golden boot is one of the most interesting sub-plots over the final week of the season. We expect him to win that accolade, and he could improve his chances by scoring a brace against Villa on Wednesday.
