Tottenham News and Form
Spurs came up with a W12 D2 L5 record on home soil last season in the top flight. It was another good, solid campaign from them. But they had their struggles in the final third of the season. Maybe their success of reaching the Champions League final caught up with them on the domestic front. Spurs won just three of their final twelve Premier League games last season.
All three of those wins were at home though, so that was a positive. Spurs only suffered one loss in their final nine home fixtures of the campaign. They did win all of their home games against teams who finished 11th or lower at the end of the seasons, so the bulk of their struggles was against the stronger teams only. Spurs average 1.8 goals per home game last term, conceding at an average of 0.8 per game.
In total Tottenham took a clean sheet in 37% of their EPL home games. Seven of the twelve home wins that Spurs took were by a margin of at least two goals. The Lilywhites were leading at the halftime break in nine of their home games last campaign. After a long wait for action in the transfer market, Spurs broke their club record in the summer getting midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon.

Aston Villa News and Form
A return to top-flight action for Villa. After winning the Championship play offs last season, Villa haven’t been shy with the cheque book. It’s not a guaranteed survival strategy of course, just ask Fulham. Boss Dean Smith has captured a top-quality keeper in Tom Heaton for a bargain and managed to get Jota from rivals Birmingham.
Also coming in over the summer have been Wesley, Trezeguet and Douglass Luiz. With a dozen summer signings, it is going to be a lot for Smith to pull together. The Villains finished fifth in the Championship last season and just got better and better the longer the season went one. From early March through to mid-April they put together a ten-match winning streak.
Villa fell out of the top flight in 2016 in what was nothing short of a disaster for the famous old club. But they are back and will be hoping that they have the resources to survive. It may, of course, need a season of betting in, especially at home. The Villains produced a w9 D8 L6 record on their Championship travels last season.
