Villa v Spurs Head To Head

Villa v Spurs Head To Head

Last Matches

Burnley v VILLA

Burnley took an early lead through Steven Caldwell in the 9th minute and managed to hold the original Claret & Blue’s at bay until Emile Heskey popped up in the 86th with a headed equaliser. (Not kidding).

TOTTENHAM v Wigan

If you don’t know what happened here... WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??
Spurs really put Wigan to the sword and knocked 8, yes count them, 8 goals past a hapless Wigan side in just 45 second half minutes. Having took a 1-0 lead into half time, Spurs, particularly Defoe, came out fighting with the England World Cup hopeful knocking in 5 goals with his 7-minute hat trick knocking Agbonlahor from 2nd place in the quickest Premier League trebles. – Must be said… Wigan were awful!


Highest Possible League Standing

Villa: 4th: With Tottenham 3 points ahead, only a 4-goal victory will be enough to dislodge Spurs following their massive boost to goal difference, so realistically we'd remain 5th equal on points with Spurs.

Spurs: 2nd: Would depend on Arsenal losing to Chelsea, which is more than possible, and Manchester United losing to Portsmouth, which is lets face it, is a LOT less likely.

Prediction

Four of the last five meetings between these two teams have ended 2-1 with the only exception being that memorable 4-4 draw. Goals are pretty much guaranteed with there being only 10 0-0 draws in all 156 previous meetings in all competitions.

Villa are looking very strong at home this season and have still maintained the impressive record of scoring in every game since that woeful loss to Wigan on the opening day of the season. Add to that the scalp of Chelsea, the draw against Manchester City and the win at Liverpool and Martin O’Neill’s men are really proving to big game players.

Tottenham on the other hand, their record against three of the big four reads 3-0 loss to Arsenal, 3-1 loss to Manchester United & a 3-0 loss to Chelsea. Not good. To be fair they have beaten Liverpool… But who hasn’t this season?

Harry Redknapp will have his team fired up following the demolition of Wigan, and rightly so. They are a threat with goal scorers such as Defoe, Keane & Crouch but just because you get a hat-full one-week doesn’t mean you will the next. (See Villa 5-1 Bolton then Burnley 1-1 Villa).

My Prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Tottenham Hotspurs

Sorry to burst your bubble but to go 4th you'd have to beat us by SEVEN! We have plus 14 goal difference and you have plus 8! I have a funny feeling we'll see a score draw on saturday, maybe 2-2 as we both like to score at the moment! It could be a belter if we both go for it!! COYS!!

Jabberyid you muppet. If we win by 3 goals then you're goal difference will go down to +11, ours will go up to +11. If you lose by 3 goals your goal difference doesn't stay the same :P To be fair I think we'd need to win by 4 because you have scored more still, that's how it works when the difference is the same isn't it?
