Aston Villa face Tottenham on Sunday in a match that can impact the race for the important top four finish this season.

Villa have won the last three meetings between these two and they have shown very good home form this season.

Sutton’s prediction for the match is a 3-2 win to  Aston Villa . You will get odds around 8.20 on that betting tips if you are into Betting on Premier League.

“Villa’s home form was very reliable for a while but even that has dropped off in the past few weeks and, although I am still going to say they will edge this, it is only a guess and not really based on anything concrete,” BBC Sport football expert Chris Sutton said.

“I know Villa won the reverse fixture, but they were quite fortunate and also it was against a Tottenham team who were missing some key men like James Maddison through injury and suspension.

“Maddison will make a difference this time, and if the Spurs attack clicks then they will be dangerous. But you could say the same about Villa, and in-form Ollie Watkins, too and I don’t think he will have a quiet afternoon.”
