Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Tottenham will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Chelsea and Wolves when they face Aston Villa in London on Sunday. Spurs suffered a dip in form, but the good news for Ange Postecoglou is that defender Destiny Udogie is back from suspension. Both Yves Bissouma and Cristian Romero are banned for the match, while James Maddison, RIcharlison, Micky van de Ven, Manor Solomon, Ryan Sessegnon, and Ivan Perisic remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Villans, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-1 win over Fulham and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Tottenham’s dressing room as well. The likes of Diego Carlos, Kortney Hause, Jacob Ramsey, and Emiliano Buendia should miss out through injuries for the visiting team. In their last meeting at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the Villans defeated Spurs 2-0.
Highlighted Player (Heung-min Son):
Over the years Son Heung-Min has established himself as one of the best Asian footballers. Son is a Tottenham Hotspur first-team regular and he played a very important role in Mauro Pochettino’s team in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign, scoring 12 goals, while making 37 appearances in the process.
The South Korean footballer, who is well known for his speed and a very powerful shot, was born in Chuncheo on 8 July 1992 and he began his youth career at FC Seoul. In 2008 he moved to Hamburger SV, but he made his senior debut for the Bundesliga club two years later. In 2013 he signed a deal with fellow German side Bayer Leverkusen and he scored 21 goals in 62 appearances in the Bundesliga for the BayArena outfit.
In 2015 he signed a five-year contract with Spurs for a fee of £22 million. Son Heung-min made his South Korea debut in a friendly against Syria in 2010.
Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa is one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946.
Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well.
The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
