Aston Villa vs Tottenham in the Premier League on Apr 9. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Aston Villa vs Tottenham in the Premier League on Apr 9. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

After suffering defeat to Wolves on Saturday, Aston Villa would then feel the impact later on that weekend and with both Crystal Palace and Leicester picking up points, they have both leapfrogged Steven Gerrard’s men in the Premier League table.

While when it comes to leapfrogging, Tottenham have done exactly the same in the race for Champions League places and after making light work of Newcastle on Sunday, they stayed in fourth by the end of Monday evening.

Highest Scoring Half - Second

With Tottenham turning on the style against Newcastle, four of their five goals came after the interval, and this is something that I have accounted for when looking at the biggest online betting sites.

Because usually more goals are found in the second half of a Premier League clash than the first and this is due to players becoming more tired as the seconds and minutes on the clock expire.

Therefore, I have plumped for more goals to be scored in the second half at Villa Park than the first and if you think that this will be the case, you can also back this outcome with me at odds of 11/10 (bet365).

Aston Villa Form, squad news, opinion

It just goes to show how congested the middle section of the Premier League currently is, win a couple of games in a row and you are trying to bridge the gap between yourself and Wolves.

Lose a couple of games in a row and a top-half finish is something that could well slip through your fingers at the end of the season. While it is this very scenario that Aston Villa now find themselves in.

Especially as Villa now have lost their last three in the Premier League and with the third of this trio coming at the hands of local rivals Wolves, it is a defeat that will smart even more than the two before.

While to add insult to injury, Steven Gerrard’s men are now in the bottom half of the Premier League and although they are only a point behind both Crystal Palace and Leicester, they have nothing in the way of positive momentum right now.

Instead, the Villa Park outfit are currently going backwards and when you also consider that this a club that previously sacked a manager for losing five successive Premier League games in a row, a win would be rather welcome at the weekend.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Tottenham, manager Steven Gerrard has no new concerns to deal with and therefore, Aston Villa will have a clean bill of health for the weekend.

However, Tyrone Mings will have to be careful not to earn a caution and if this happens, the England international will be served with a disciplinary ban.

Tottenham Form, squad news, opinion

To lose ten games this Premier League season and still be 4th in the Premier League, is something that highlights a win or bust mentality and that is exactly what Tottenham seem to be operating under in recent weeks.

While thankfully for manager Antonio Conte, there is a lot more win than bust these days and after recording a third successive league success on Sunday, it is now five wins from their last six league outings.

A run of results which has also seen Tottenham move above Arsenal in the race for that final Champions League berth and with the two teams set to meet next month, it is shaping up to be a fascinating encounter.

Of course, Tottenham must still make sure that they are a going concern before then and the best way to do that is by going on a run that is near invincible - a run that must continue at Villa Park on Saturday.

While with the way that Antonio Conte has his team playing at present, it really is not something that you would put past them and if Harry Kane can continue his impressive streak of current form, it may be a long evening for Aston Villa.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Aston Villa, manager Antonio Conte has a growing injury list to deal with and now Sergio Regullion joins the trio of Ryan Sessegnon, Japhet Tanganga and Oliver Skipp on the sidelines.

History

When it comes to the history of these two clubs, it is fair to say that they hold special meaning to Harry Kane and with the England forward once scoring a dramatic late winner at Villa Park, that was the goal that truly kickstarted his Tottenham career.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Aston Villa have won on 57 occasions, Tottenham 76 and there have been 36 draws

About the Venue

Villa Park opened in 1897 and holds up to 42,682 supporters.

When it comes to the home of Aston Villa, their Villa Park stadium is one of the oldest in the country and although the West Midlands outfit may have won the European Cup in 1982, it has not seen anything near that level of success since.

With that said, the current Villa owners are not short of a penny or two and with the building blocks being seemingly put in place, their aim will be for the club to eventually reach the Champions League.

Conclusion

When it comes to the Premier League odds for a top-ten finish, Aston Villa’s will have lengthened further after last weekend and now they must be mindful not to cede any more ground to the teams above them.

While when it comes to the odds for a top-four finish in the Premier League, Tottenham’s have shortened to Evens and all of a sudden, they look more of an assured bet than that of Arsenal.
