Tottenham Hotspur and Both Teams To Score
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Tottenham have won six of their last seven Premier League home games.
- Tottenham have kept only three clean sheets in their last ten league matches.
Spurs welcome supporters back
Up to 10,000 supporters will attend Tottenham’s final home game of the season against Aston Villa on Wednesday evening, and the hosts could be worth backing to welcome their fans back in style in north London.
Mathematically at least, Spurs are still in with a shot at finishing in fifth spot this term, though they will need a miraculous turnaround in the final two games of the campaign to snatch Europa League qualification at the death.
Tottenham warmed up for their clash with Villa by beating another team from the Midlands, Wolves, last time out, where strikes from Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg earned the hosts a 2-0 scoreline that flattered Wanderers.
Villa limping over the line
Aston Villa were shot down by the Eagles on Sunday despite taking the lead twice at Selhurst Park – a result that pushed the Villains deeper into the Premier League’s bottom half.
Dean Smith’s charges had threatened to upset the division’s established order earlier in the campaign, though their form has tailed off badly in the season’s final throes.
Ahead of their trip to north London to take on a Tottenham team packed with attacking talent, Villa have won only three times in their last 11 attempts.
Points but no clean sheet for hosts?
Tottenham have won six of their last seven games at home and with a frontline that boasts the talents of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale and a rejuvenated Dele Alli, it’s easy to see why.
That fearsome quartet can fire Spurs to glory in front of their returning supporters this week, though Tottenham’s return of just three clean sheets in their last ten league matches hints that a Villa team wielding the fit-again Jack Grealish can notch a consolation.
With that considered, the Tottenham and both teams to score combination jumps out at a price worth backing, while our 3-1 correct score prediction tips the Villains to concede three goal in the capital for the second game in a row.
Tottenham Hotspur injuries and team news
Ben Davies and Serge Aurier are both injured at fullback for Tottenham. Ryan Mason could choose to name the same XI that performed well against Wolves last time out. All eyes will be on Harry Kane however, after the England man reaffirmed his desire to leave the club in the summer.
Aston Villa injures and team news
Trezeguet and Matthew Cash are in the treatment room for Villa, while Margan Sanson is also a doubt. Jack Grealish could make his first start following his return from injury.
