Reason For Aston Villa vs Tottenham Hotspur Predictions

  • Over 2.5 goals hit the net in 72% of Aston Villa’s Premier League games this season.
  • Tottenham’s matches have averaged 3.10 goals per 90 minutes since Jose Mourinho’s appointment.
  • Spurs drew four of their last five away games in all competitions.
  • Villa averaged 1.83 goals across their last 12 home games.

Villa’s relegation fears

With just one point separating 17th placed Aston Villa from West Ham in 19th, the Villains’ Premier League survival hopes still hang in the balance as we enter the final months of the 2019/20 campaign.

Villa’s league form just before the winter hiatus suggests they are ready to battle hard for their survival however, with three of their seven Premier League victories this season arriving in the final flurry of fixtures before the February break.

January also saw the club hit hugely contrasting highs and lows in the domestic cup competitions. Villa were dumped out of the FA Cup at the 3rd Round stage by Championship outfit Fulham, though the Villains performed miracles to oust Leicester City over two legs in the Carabao Cup Semi Final to set up a Wembley date with Manchester City in March.

With a final in the bank for themselves, Villa will be desperate to improve their league position as quickly as possible. Their Premier League results this season have been incredibly inconsistent, though Villa’s games have generally been reliable when it comes to goals.

Villa’s games usually guarantee goals

Over 2.5 goals were registered in 72% of Aston Villa’s Premier League fixtures so far this term with both teams finding the net in 68% of those matches. In fact, Villa’s league games have averaged a meaty 3.16 goals per 90 minutes overall since the summer.

On Sunday, Villa entertain Jose Mourinho’s hit and miss Tottenham Hotspur side, and the evidence suggests we should expect plenty of goals and penalty area drama again.

Since the Portuguese manager’s appointment, goals have been plentiful in Spurs’ matches, in what has been a somewhat unusual departure from Mourinho’s reputation for delivering dull football.

Over 2.5 goals rattled the net in 12 of the 19 Tottenham fixtures Mourinho has overseen since his arrival with both teams registering in a further 12 of those contests. In terms of average goals scored, the figures look healthy too, and Spurs’ matches have averaged 3.10 goals per game since the Special One took the reins.

Goals markets worth plundering

With Villa and Tottenham both scoring and leaking goals a-plenty, the goals markets are worth exploring for Sunday’s game, and the numbers suggest that the over 2.5 goals and both teams to score combination holds plenty of value for what promises to be a thrilling clash in England’s second city.

Our correct score forecast leans on the same statistical evidence, and we’re tipping the teams to play out a pulsating 2-2 draw on Sunday.

Spurs have been drawing far too often away from home of late however, finishing level in four of their last five outings as the visiting team. With their away day struggles still so frustratingly apparent, we think Tottenham will have to settle for a share of the spoils again against a Villa side that avoided defeat in 10 of their last 14 home games in all competitions.

Villa scored and conceded 1.83 and 1.75 goals on average per 90 minutes respectively over their last dozen home games in all competitions – numbers that highlight how often their sparkling attacking play is cancelled out by spells of lacklustre defending.

That potent mix should result in another high-scoring encounter on Sunday, which in turn makes a 2-2 draw a correct score well worth considering.
