TEAM FORM
Villa - DWWWL -------- Spurs - WLWDW


A pivotal battle in the Premier League's top 4 race commences at Villa Park on Sunday lunchtime, as Villa welcome us to their West Midlands base. The Lions return to top-flight action on the back of a 0-0 Europa Conference League draw with Ajax, while we came from a goal down to beat Palace 3-1 last weekend.

Spurs
As has been tradition for us in 2024, we conceded first a Premier League home game for the fourth time in a row last weekend, where Palace hotshot Eze fizzed a venomous free kick out of Viario’s's reach early in the second half.

We had shown minimal signs of life in attack before Eze's sensational set-piece, but our offensive forces quickly came to life when there was a deficit to make up, as Werner, Romero and Son turned the London derby on its head.

On account of our first win by at least a two-goal margin in 2024, we - will move to within two points of Villa with success on Sunday, where a triumph would also put our Champions League destiny back into our own hands thanks to our match in hand.

The beating of Palace marked the ninth Premier League game in a row in which we have both scored and conceded, but our away record leaves a lot to be desired, as we have just one win to show from our last six on the road, going winless in each of our last three.

Speaking of three-match streaks, Villa have impressively got the better of us in each of their last three Premier League contests, although we arrive at Villa Park having struck multiple goals in our last five top-flight away battles, albeit while often being let down by a lack of defensive discipline.


Villa
Bidding to transfer his unparalleled Europa League success into Europa Conference League stardom with Aston Villa, Lions head coach Emery oversaw a tense battle with Ajax in the first leg of their last-16 tie, in which both sides had a man dismissed in the dying embers.

Konsa and Gooijer both took the walk of shame for a pair of bookable offences, but Villa managed to depart Amsterdam with a praiseworthy goalless draw to their name, making them the favourites to prolong their European adventure in next week's second leg on home turf.

Before their quest for continental supremacy resumes, the Lions go in search of a fourth Premier League win on the trot, having overcome Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Luton Town - defeating the latter thanks to a last-gap Digne header - to wrestle back control of the race for Champions League football.

Sitting 4th with a five-point gap to us - albeit with a game in hand - Emery's men will put a serious dent in our top-four aspirations with victory on Sunday, which would also mark their first four-game top-flight winning sequence of the season.

However, the hosts have developed a propensity for leaking goals in the top flight - conceding multiple times in four of their last six Premier League affairs - but their magnificent scoring streak at Villa Park now stands at 27 top-flight matches since drawing a blank against Chelsea in October 2022.

Team News

In terms of our availability, Postecoglou said before the win over Palace that Richarlison would be sidelined for a few weeks with a knee problem, but speaking to Brazilian media at the match, the attacker disputed his manager's claim and said that he would be fine for the trip to Villa Park.

Postecoglou said on Friday that Richarlison would indeed be unavailable this weekend, but in brighter news, Porro has made a full recovery from the strain which has sidelined him for the last two matches.

Sessegnon (hamstring), Forster (foot) and Soloman (knee) make up the visitors' guaranteed absentees for Sunday's game, but Postecoglou has also revealed that Sarr is being carefully managed due to an ongoing back problem.
