Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur: It is going to be a battle for the European Conference League when Aston Villa welcome Tottenham to Villa Park.

The last outing between the two teams ended in a 1-0 win for Tottenham.

Aston Villa will be coming back from a loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Tottenham Hotspur, who defeated Crystal Palace in the last encounter, will be looking forward to winning their second match under Ryan Mason.

Aston Villa vs. Tottenham Hotspur Preview

From scoring in the last 22 games to failing to score in the last two matches, Unai Emery experienced a dip in his club form, and the hope of getting into the Champions League is currently fading.

The team was looking forward to coming back against Tottenham after suffering from a 1-0 defeat to Wolves in the Premier League.

In the previous match against Tottenham, Aston Villa were behind after a Toti Gomes’ header in the ninth minute of the match.

Also, the wasteful finish from Aston Villa ended the team’s hope of winning the match. Despite the setback in the match, Aston Villa are still in contention for European football next season.

Aston Villa are currently in eighth place and are likely to get to the same level as Tottenham Hotspur. The Villa away form has been poor, and a return to Villa Park is expected to boost the team’s form.

The club has secured five wins at home without conceding a goal in that process. Also, the team had scored 10 goals in those matches. Their scoring streak stands at 13 in the last 13 matches at Villa Park.

Harry Kane’s goal was all that was needed to help Tottenham Hotspur defeat Crystal Palace 1-0.

After the stadium announcer announced that one minute was added, Kane met Pedro Porto’s header to give Tottenham Hotspur fans hope of winning the match.

The striker moved to second place on the all-time Premier League highest goal-scoring list, surpassing Wayne Rooney’s 208 goals with 209 goals.

Another achievement was Ryan Mason’s winning his first match as a caretaker after losing to Liverpool and drawing against Manchester United in a four-goal thriller.

Tottenham are currently in sixth place with a six-point difference from Manchester United, who are currently in fourth place with 34 matches played.

However, Tottenham Hotspur’s away form is nothing to write home about. The North London team had failed to win their last eight away matches in all competitions.
