Tottenham Hotspur take on Aston Villa as they travel to Aston Villa on Saturday, hoping to secure all three points in this contest. The Lilywhites were held to a 1-1 stalemate against Crystal Palace, so they’ll be looking to give out a better performance in order to come out on top this weekend.
Ryan Mason will probably set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and is expected to keep the changes to a minimum for this contest. Emerson Royal could get another chance to play from the start in the backline while Richarlison makes way for Dejan Kulusevski.
3-4-3 Tottenham Hotspur Predicted XI Vs Aston Villa
Fraser Forster will continue to function in goal for Spurs in the absence of Hugo Lloris, who is set to miss the rest of the season. Emerson Royal, Clement Lenglet and Cristian Romero will make Tottenham’s back three as they focus on stopping the Liverpool attackers from causing problems throughout the game.
Eric Dier will take a spot on the bench as he offers cover for the centre-back positions.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Oliver Skipp will continue to anchor the midfield for Spurs as they try to establish dominance over the opposition at the centre of the park.
Pedro Porro will look to impress on the right flank, while Ivan Perisic looks to put in a productive performance as the left wing-back. Both of them will need to work hard at both ends of the field if Tottenham are to come out on top in this crucial fixture.
Pape Matar Sarr will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the latter stages if needed.
Heung-min Son will remain on the left wing, while Dejan Kulusevski starts on the right flank. Harry Kane will spearhead Tottenham’s attack up top, fancying his chances of finding the back of the net.
Richarlison and Arnaut Danjuma will be available for selection on the bench as they wait to impact in the second half if required.
