The Premier League action continues on Saturday, August 10, as Tottenham vs Aston Villa takes place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. The home team will look to build on last season’s success as they welcome the newly-promoted Championship playoff winner. Aston Villa will look to produce a shock result as they walk into this match as massive underdogs.
Tottenham vs Aston Villa Prediction and Match Preview
Saturday, August 10 – 12:30 EST – Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham’s main priority this season will be to challenge reigning champions Manchester City and runner-ups Liverpool to the Premier League trophy. To name a few, they strengthened their team with the additions of Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon. Challenging the top teams in the league will not be an easy task, but the London based team will look to start off the new campaign in the best of ways on Saturday. Speaking of which, they have an outstanding record against new-comers. Specifically against Aston Villa, they recorded 9 wins in the last 10 matches. With all the firepower that Tottenham have at their disposal, there are high chances that the final result will favor them.
On the other hand, Aston Villa return to the Premier League after earning promotion from the Championship. They come into this match knowing that it will take something special to get a result. On that note, they can count on their recent away form. They recorded 5 wins in their last 6 away matches that ended their regular Championship season. They will hope that their new signing Wesley Moraes will be able to replicate his success with Club Brugge.
Without a doubt, we are expecting Tottenham to set in stone their first win of the season on Saturday. While opening day fixtures could provide a surprise or two, we think that the team from London is more than capable of coming out on top in this one.
