Tottenham Hotspur will be back at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium on Sunday as they welcome in-form Aston Villa for a one-on-one Premier League clash, with kickoff slated for 14:00 GMT.
Tottenham’s confidence will be shot after their first back-to-back defeats of the season saw them fall from leaders of the league to fourth on the table right before the international break.
The chaotic 1-4 home defeat against Chelsea, in which two players were sent off, was followed by a 2-1 defeat away to Wolves. Ange Postecoglou will look to pick up the pieces and rebuild the confidence of his side ahead of welcoming Aston Villa to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.
Aston Villa have been one of the outstanding surprises of the season as their stellar form has seen the push for a top-four berth. They are currently fifth on the table with 25 points from 12 matches, just a point behind their opponents on Sunday.
This means Unai Emery’s side can leapfrog Tottenham into fourth place with a win on Sunday. This will be a massive motivation and incentive for the Villa players ahead of their trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Ange Postecoglou will be without Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Whiteman, Micky van de Ven, Ivan Perisic, Manor Solomon, James Maddison, Richarlison, and Destiny Udogie, all sidelined with injuries.
Unai Emery will be without Tyrone Mings, Emiliano Buendia, and Alex Moreno due to injury.
Tottenham will win the match and get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
