Aston Villa vs Tottenham: What has been said?
Aston Villa head coach Dean Smith: “It’s a tough league, one in which it is difficult to build consistency because of the quality of the other teams in there, but I feel we’ve just started to build that consistency.
“As everybody knows, we had a big turnaround [of players] in the summer and they’re starting to gel.
“For the first time we’ve had a mini break and we’ve seen a positive side to it. It gave everybody a chance to have some time away from the place, and to clear their heads.”
Tottenham Hotspur head coach Jose Mourinho: “We had a good week. Three very good training sessions. Of course I told you if we didn’t play against Southampton [in an FA Cup replay] I would give the players some time but we would be back early.
“Because of the Southampton game we had less time for training but we had three very good days. We went through different aspects of our game to improve.”

Aston Villa’s seven Premier League victories this season have come on six different days of the week, with Sunday the only day the Villans have yet to win on in 2019-20. Victory here will see Aston Villa become just the second team in English top-flight history to win a league game on all seven days of the week within the same season, after Spurs in 1986-87. Tottenham are looking to secure three consecutive Premier League victories for the first time since a run of four in January/February 2019. However, the Lilywhites have won just two of their last 18 league games on the road (D5 L11). Aston Villa have faced more shots than any other Premier League side this season (441). Their record of 17.6 shots faced per game is their highest in a single campaign in the competition since we have this data available (2003-04).

He’s also the first player to register 50+ shots and 50+ chances created in a single top-flight campaign for the Villans since Christian Benteke in 2012-13. In Spurs’ 2-0 win against Man City, Steven Bergwijn became the 250th player to score on his Premier League debut, and the 13th Dutchman – no Dutch player has ever scored in both of their first two appearances in the competition.
