Tottenham – Four straight home wins under Mason? 

Interim Tottenham (W18 D9 L9) manager Ryan Mason maintained his perfect home record on Sunday, overseeing a third straight league win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a 2-0 scoreline against Wolves. Spurs are now in the driving seat in the race for Europa League qualification, level on points with sixth-placed West Ham but boasting a considerably better goal difference on their London adversaries.

Six points from meetings with Aston Villa and Leicester should wrap up fifth spot therefore, and would represent a slight improvement on last season’s sixth-place finish under Jose Mourinho. However, while Spurs will be favourites in the first of those, having beaten Villa the last six times they have faced one another, a trip to the King Power Stadium on the final day promises to be a stiff assignment.

Tottenham are in good form, though, with three wins in four since the short-term appointment of Mason. All three were at home where they are averaging 2.49 xG under a more expansive coach who has opted to deploy all of Son Heung-Min, Harry Kane and Gareth Bale in a three-pronged attack. The goals have naturally flowed, netting eight for the loss of one goal here to Sheff Utd, Southampton and Wolves.


Tottenham Win & Both to Score



Aston Villa – Entertaining but no longer winning enough?

Following Sunday’s 3-2 defeat away to Crystal Palace, a top-half finish now looks increasingly unlikely for Aston Villa (W14 D7 L15), with Leeds, in tenth, four points better off and possessing the easier run-in. Irrespective of where they finish, Dean Smith and his players can approach their final games safe in the knowledge that safety has long been secured – with no need for any final day heroics similar to last season.

First up is a visit to sixth-place Tottenham for a fixture they have lost on six of their previous seven attempts in the Premier League as the away side, last winning in 2015. This before welcoming Chelsea to Villa Park, the Blues desperate for all three points in their quest to qualify for the Champions League. Villa have not won any of their last ten meetings (D1 L9) with sides currently sixth or better in the table.

Momentum is also thin on the ground. It is now one point taken from the last nine having beaten only Everton at Goodison Park – a ground even bottom side Sheffield United won at over the weekend – in their last seven league games (D2 L4). There remains little wrong with their attacking play, though. Villa have both scored and conceded in seven of their last eight league games.

Tottenham Vs Aston Villa Betting Advice

A place in the Europa League and a top-half finish are potentially at stake at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham will be the more confident of a result, though. Since replacing Jose Mourinho with Ryan Mason, Spurs boast three wins in as many home games, notching at least twice in each. Conversely, Aston Villa boast a solitary win across their last five away league outings having lost three of these.


Tottenham Vs Aston Villa – Key Facts:

  • Victory on Wednesday would earn Tottenham their seventh successive win over Aston Villa. The latter have lost six of the last seven league meetings in London (W1).
  • Tottenham boast a 100% record in Premier League home games since the appointment of interim manager Ryan Mason, recording three straight wins by an aggregate of 8-1.
  • Aston Villa have developed a penchant for scoring as well as conceding, seeing seven of their past eight Premier League games fo this way.


History suggests another win for Tottenham beckons. In all competitions it is six straight victories. Meanwhile here in London it is seven wins from the last eight, having won last season’s corresponding fixture 3-1. That scoreline has every chance of repeating itself: Villa have scored and conceded in seven of their last eight matches and could even hand Jack Grealish (6 goals, 10 assists) a first start since February.
