Live Betting: Aston Villa v. Tottenham HotspurPublished October 20, 2013 by OCR Editor
Aston Villa v Tottenham, 4 pm local time.
The 8th round of the Premier League season sees Aston Villa hosting Tottenham Hotspur at Villa Park today. The two teams have a long history of meetings, with this being the 166th in number. Looking at the last matches from recent years between the two, it is clear that the Spurs have the upper hand. Apart for a 1-1 draw at Villa Park in April 2012, Tottenham emerged victorious from all recent games.
Tottenham is coming to Villa Park after a hard 3-0 defeat to West Ham United - a loss which cost them four points in the table, effectively dropping from the second position to the sixth. This came after a 1-1 draw to Chelsea, so the Spurs are certainly very keen on winning this one.
Aston Villa is sitting at position 10 in the table. The team's performance has been rather shaky, moving back and forth. They marked a spectacular 1-3 victory over Arsenal in the beginning of the season, and a 3-2 against Manchester City, but then they had a 1-0 loss to Norwich and Hull. Villa can win, and that win can be aided by the possible return of striker Christian Benteke, the team's leading striker having scored five goals this season.
