Tottenham Hotspur v Aston Villa Preview, FA Cup, 8th January 2017

Tottenham Hotspur are having a great season in the premiership so far and currently occupy 3rd place in the league table on 42pts having secured 12 wins, 6 draws and 2 defeats from their 20 matches played.

The hosts head into this game with confidence very high having beaten current league leaders Chelsea 2-0 at White Hart Lane midweek with a performance that has received high praise from many football pundits.

This FA Cup 3rd round match against Aston Villa does look a much easier game and as such the manager will probably make a number of changes to his side to reflect this and provide some of the fringe players in the squad a chance to impress.

Aston Villa had a terrible start to their new life in the championship this season, but the club has slowly recovered and now occupies 12th place in the league table on 35pts having secured 8 wins, 11 draws and 6 defeats from their 25 matches played.

The visitors head into this game having lost away against Cardiff City last time out 1-0 and with the club still a long way off obtaining an end of season promotion play off place, things are not looking at all good for the ex premiership club and it would come as a major shock to see them get anything from this game on Sunday afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur Team News :

The hosts will be without the services of Harry Kane, Danny Rose, Deli Ali and at least another two or three regular first team players for this game as the manager has decided to give them all a rest.

Vincent Jannsen will get an opportunity to impress as he will surely be handed the main striker role up front and their could also be starts for Ben Davies, Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier.

Aston Villa Team News :

TThe visitors will be without the services of Ayew and Jonathan Kodija as they are away on International duty and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy also looks unlikely to feature until he pledges his future to the club.

Mile Jedinak has recovered from illness and looks likely to be involved in the starting lineup along with Manchester United loanee Sam Johnstone who joined the club on Thursday.

Tottenham Hotspur v Aston Villa Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday’s afternoon game from White Hart Lane Stadium will become the 144th meeting between the two clubs over the years, of which Tottenham Hotspur have won 62 times overall with 37 of those victories having came with home advantage.

Aston Villa have managed to secure 49 victories overall with 21 of those having came away from home and with the club having had a very tough time of it so far in the championship, those stats do look very unlikely to change.

As we can see from our head to head to head statistics table shown below, the last five recent meetings shows Tottenham Hotspur with a clear advantage, having won an impressive four times, compared to Aston Villa having won just the once.

238 of those Goals have came in the 71 previous matches played at White Hart Lane Stadium and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic of 3.35.

Based on both sets of data shown above it does seem to suggest that this game should see at least a few goals scored and the betting market Total Goals Over 2.5 and Both Teams to Score both looking good selections to get on for this game.

Tottenham Hotspur have a clear advantage on the recent form statistics having managed an impressive five wins from their last five matches played one of which included a 2-0 win over current premiership league leaders Chelsea !

Aston Villa have managed two wins, one draw and two defeats from their previous five matches played and with Spurs in such tremendous form at the moment, it’s difficult to see the visitors causing them too many problems in this one.

Tottenham Hotspur v Aston Villa Match Betting Odds Market

Tottenham Hotspur are on fire at the moment in the league having won all of their last five previous matches and the club will see this tournament as one they can definitely win. However their current best price of 1/3 with Bet365 – Receive £200 Matched Bonus Bets when Registering a New Account, is not at all good value but could be an attractive proposition for the big bettors.

The Draw is a current a best price of 9/2 with SkyBet – Bet £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets when Registering a New Account although this does look an unlikely outcome with the way Spurs are playing at the moment.

Aston Villa are having a tough season and could probably do without the distraction of a cup tournament as they try to secure an end of season play off promotion place and their current best price of 11/1 with BetVictor – Bet £10 & Receive £60 Free Bets when Registering a New Account, does seem to reflect their chances of winning this game.

Tottenham Hotspur v Aston Villa Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Tottenham Hotspur are looking like a side this season that should win at least something as with a very strong squad full of world class players and they will definitely see this tournament as one that they more than a good chance of securing if they can continue to keep playing the way they have done in recent weeks.

Aston Villa suffered quite a humiliation last season having been relegated into the championship, most people expected the club to bounce straight back up this season, but things haven’t quite gone to plan and the club continues to struggle week in week out.

There would be no better confidence boost to Aston Villa football club if they were to somehow win this game on Sunday afternoon and as we all know the FA Cup does have a habit of throwing up some shock results year after year, so despite their poor form this season it would be foolish to completely write them off in this game.

However, it would take a season’s best performance by the visitors to beat this strong looking Tottenham Hotspur side and I do expect the hosts to have won this game quite comfortably when all is said and done despite the Tottenham manager having made a number of changes to his starting lineup.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Tottenham Hotspur to Win as with Spurs looking likely to give players like Jannsen, Davies, Trippier, Winks and a couple of other fringe team players a place in the starting lineup, the visitors could be good for at least one goal in this game.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Heung-Min Son to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as with Jannsen very good at holding up play in his striker role, this should see Son have plenty of opportunities at the Villa goal.
