FA CUP Match Preview : Tottenham vs Aston Villa


Tottenham will have been buoyed by the midweek 2-0 win over Chelsea and have won their last five league fixtures. Spurs have won five of their last six home meetings with Villa, conceding just three goals in that run.

Villa have failed to win their last two league fixtures and the absense of Jonathan Kodjia and Jordan Ayew hinders their chances of upsetting the odds at White Hart Lane. The Villans have struggled on their travels this term with just two wins to their name.

Villa’s away woes could continue on Sunday, with Spurs favourites to secure the win. Naijabet.com
