Tottenham vs Aston Villa – Prediction, Odds and Betting Tips – 10.08.2019

Tottenham vs Aston Villa

Starting the new league season at home for just the sixth time since 2000/01 (W2, D3), Tottenham Hotspur have won an astounding 20 of their last 21 Premier League (PL) home games against newcomers. The most common winning scoreline in that sequence was ‘1-0’, being produced seven times (35% of the time) across Tottenham’s 20 victories therein.
However, if the hosts are to suffer a ‘false start’, it is worth noting that their last three PL goals conceded on home turf (against all opponents) have come between the 61st-75th minute.
Shouldering ‘newly-promoted’ status for the first time since 1988/89, Aston Villa travel here knowing that they are massive underdogs. Recent PL H2H meetings underline this, with four of the last six seeing the ‘Villans’ fall to defeat after a first half lost to-nil.
Even so, Villa may be able to draw upon the unbeaten run of six away games (W5, D1) that ended their regular Championship season. Two-thirds (four) of those matches saw Villa concede first with both teams scoring.
Players to watchHarry Kane has netted precisely once in three of Tottenham’s last four PL home games against newly-promoted opponents, scoring the first or last goal of the day each time.
Brazilian striker Wesley Moraes could debut as Villa’s marquee £22m signing. He scored ten goals in the Belgian regular 2018/19 league season, with three of his last five competitive goals being headers.
Stat attack: ‘3-1 to Tottenham’ (in August 2000) was the result when the ‘Lilywhites’ last hosted a newly-promoted side on PL gameweek one.
Five of Tottenham’s last six PL home wins over newly-promoted opponents have yielded a clean sheet.
Villa’s last seven Championship away goals of 2018/19 came in the second half.
