Aston Villa vs Tottenham prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

Aston Villa welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Villa Park for their Premier League clash on Sunday.

Ollie Watkins was called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad, and he will try to cap his landmark week with a goal.

After a good run of form, Spurs lost the North London derby last week and were outclassed in their 3-0 Europa League defeat to Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night.

Jose Mourinho’s side blew a two-goal lead from the first leg as they crashed out of Europe in embarrassing fashion.
