Harry Kane side form in recent times has been quite volatile, talking about the former Ali side too, Tottenham
Along with the fatigue of a series of pillars, it is not easy for the team nicknamed Spurs to easily defeat the Aston Villa guests who are playing quite stable.
English Premier League
Villa went down 3-1 at home to Liverpool in their Boxing Day game and they now face another tricky game against a team chasing a top four finish.
Spurs a formidable opponent at home
Spurs fell 2-0 behind at Brentford but fought back to secure a 2-2 draw in a Jekyll and Hyde display.
Antonio Conte’s men looked bereft of ideas in the first half and only seemed to click into gear after Ivan Toney scored the Bees’ second, but they should be able to put in a more complete performance on home soil.
The North Londoners have six wins and two defeats from eight home league games so far and their losses have come at the hands of fellow top six sides.
Villa, who sit 12th, have a poor away record with just one win, five points and five goals in eight trips so far – but they may be able to at least grab a consolation effort in this fixture.
Tottenham is showing a rather erratic form when they often draw and lose more than they win. The proof is that Spurs only won 1 win, but drew 1 and lost 2 in the previous 4 official appearances in all competitions. Notably, their only victory was against a weak team like Leeds United.
The home field is also not much help for coach Antonio Conte’s teachers and students, they have only won 1 match out of the 4 matches played at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before.
The last time they welcomed Aston Villa at home, Tottenham was troubled by this opponent and struggled to win with a score of 2-1. In addition to the problem of form, the fitness of the Spurs players is also very worrying.
Many pillars of the London team such as Emile Hojbjerg, Eric Dier, Ivan Perisic, Son Heung-min or Harry Kane have just returned to the club after working hard for the national team. Not to mention this match, coach Antonio Conte’s team still lacks striker Richarlison because of injury.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa is showing stable form in the Premier League. Except for 2 defeats against the teams ranked in the Top 6 such as … and Liverpool, The Villa are unbeaten in the last 3 outings and won all 3. Thanks to that good performance, the Villa Park team climbed to 12th place in the rankings.
This season, Aston Villa owns a fairly even squad in all 3 routes. In the defense, they have Tyrone Mings, and Lucas Digne, and the midfield has Douglas Luiz.
know that the above, the Villa Park team owns a pair of identical cards Ollie Watkins and Leon Bailey. More importantly, the pillars of The Villa mostly do not have to play for the national team and have more than 1 month of full rest to regain their fitness.
