Tottenham Hotspur

Match Date: 11 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: White Hart Lane


A heart-wrenching loss to title contender, Manchester City, compels Aston Villa to secure a win against Tottenham Hotspur. The visitor’s inconsistent performance, most especially during the last leg of the season halted their chances of improving their rank and making a stronger finish.


Whilst the struggling Sunderland was able to force City to a draw, this was not the case for the Villans. In their recently concluded match, the latter experienced a massive thrashing that pushed them back to the 15th spot. What made matters even worse was the fact that City kept a clean sheet against them.


Luckily, the above-mentioned scenario took place during the final days of the season. If the loss happened with a few more matches left, there is a high possibility for the club to drop into the relegation zone.


Its head honcho, Paul Lambert is readily aware of the repercussions of the said loss and even admitted that such incident could compromise his stay in the squad.


Aston Villa is set to meet the online betting favorite, Tottenham with a poor team form. The club has been unsuccessful in 5 of its last 6 matches and nurses a struggling away form. To note, the Villans have also failed its last 5 matches outside Villa Park.


Such information is music to Tottenham’s ears. Tim Sherwood and his men are ready to exploit their home court advantage. As a matter of fact, 5 of its last 6 matches at White Hart Lane ended in their favor.


Prediction:  Tottenham Hotspur
