Tottenham – Aston Villa Preview

  • Tottenham’s Champions League hopes hang on securing a seventh straight H2H win, and results going their way elsewhere. Winning looks likely considering their last match saw ‘Spurs’ record more shots (24) and shots on target (13) than any Premier League (PL) outing under former manager José Mourinho, as interim boss Ryan Mason secured three wins from his opening three home league matches – the first Tottenham manager to achieve that since Harry Redknapp in 2008.
  • The last two were won at HT/FT, which has been the case in 70% of Tottenham’s PL home wins this campaign. An unbeaten record in their previous four final home outings of a PL campaign (W3, D1), all of which saw Tottenham score before HT, hints at another good start and result here.
  • A three-game winless run (D1, L2) has ended Aston Villa’s European hopes, although Villa are still set to finish in their highest PL placing since securing ninth in 2010/11. Two of those matches saw Villa lose despite scoring first, which is worrying as prior to that they had a healthy 72.22% win-rate when netting first this PL campaign (W13, D2, L3).
  • However Villa have picked up more points away than at home (27 vs 22), and have scored first for four straight road trips (W1, D1, L2). That, coupled with an average of just one goal conceded per PL away outing, shows they could be difficult opponents.
  • Players to watch: Only Robert Lewandowski and Lionel Messi have been directly involved in more goals across Europe’s top-five leagues than Harry Kane (22 G, 13 A). Impressively, Anwar El Ghazi’s seven PL away strikes is the highest away haul of any Villa player across their last five top-flight campaigns – three were match openers.
  • Hot stat: Tottenham have hit the woodwork a league-high 23 times. Kane has hit it nine times – only once since 2003/04 has a player done so on more occasions in a PL campaign.
