Tottenham have been in red hot form of late and they take that good form into their FA Cup third round tie against Championship Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The side from north London have won their last five games and recorded a 2-0 win over Premier League leaders, Chelsea, as Dele Alli headed a brace. The win saw Mauricio Pochettino’s team move up to third in the table, hot on the heels of second-place Liverpool.
The side from north London are now arguably the form team in the top-flight. The biggest reason for their upturn in form of late has been their attacking threat, which has seen them score 15 goals in their last five games.
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino may well decide to rotate his starting line-up in this clash. However, the side from north London have decent strength-in-depth.
The visitors are 12th in the Championship table under experienced Premier League boss Steve Bruce. In truth, their form has been inconsistent of late, but they have failed to win their last two games, suffering a 1-0 defeat in south Wales at Cardiff in their last outing.
The Villans recent games have also been low-scoring of late, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven games. Their away games have also been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last six games.
Their away record has been poor of late, as Bruce’s side have won just one of their last six games on their travels. In fact, the side from the Midlands have lost three of their last four away games. Villa have struggled for goals on their travels, failing to score in three of their last four games on their travels.
Forebet predicts that Tottenham will record a comfortable victory in this clash, despite the fact that Spurs are likely to field a rotated starting line-up.
