One of the powerhouses in the EPL will take on newly promoted Aston Villa. These teams last met in 2017 in the FA Cup. The match ended in a 2-0 win for Tottenham. Over their last 5 meetings, Tottenham is 4-1 against Aston Villa.
Aston Villa gain promotion to the EPL for the first time since 2016. They finished 5th in the EFL Championship, but won the playoff against Derby to secure their return to the top league. There is no doubt they will be rusty, having not played a team like Tottenham in awhile.
The Aston Villa attack was number three in goals scored last season. Yes, this was in the second division, but still they scored 82 goals in 46 games, which is solid. Their leading scorer was Tammy Abraham. He score 26 goals on the season. He needs to transfer this goal scoring ability to the Premier League if Aston Villa is going to have any chance of keeping their spot in the league.
On the defensive side, they had some trouble. They allowed 61 goals on the season. This was not the worst, but it was ranked in the bottom half of the league. This is very dangerous because Tottenham has some prolific scoring options. If they start off shaky, this game could get away from them quickly.
Last season was somewhat disappointing because the Spurs missed chances to win a trophy. They lost in the Champions League Final and faded in the Premier League. They are still a very good team and are even a long shot to win the League Title. They are going to have to do a better job of closing out games when they are ahead because there were several times when they blew a lead.
-The attack was once again pretty solid for the Hotspurs. They scored 67 times, but it was just not enough in the end. Harry Kane led the team in scoring with 17 goals. He also missed ten games, so this is pretty good. They also had Son Heung-Min, who scored 12, and Lucas Moura, who scored 10. These three guys will be the main reason for the Spurs success.
Their defending was great at times, but also were broken down plenty. They allowed 39 goals, and a lot of these goals allowed teams to come back on them. Luckily they are playing Aston Villa, so they should be able to lock them down without much issue.
