Aston Villa vs Tottenham - Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups and prediction

  • Fourth takes on fifth in the Premier League on Sunday
  • Tottenham trail Aston Villa by five points in the table
  • Villa won 2-1 away from home in the reverse fixture

A decisive battle in the Premier League's top-four race arrives on Sunday as Aston Villa welcome Tottenham to Villa Park.

As it stands, just the league's top four will qualify for next season's rejigged Champions League, although it could be five by the time the season draws to a close.

These two sides occupy fourth and fifth in the table, with the victor taking a huge step towards securing fourth spot. Tottenham currently sit five points adrift of Villa, but they have played a game less.

Ange Postecoglou's side haven't exactly purred in 2024, but they responded from their 2-1 defeat at home to Wolves by coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace last weekend.

Villa, meanwhile, secured a late victory at Luton Town last time out in the Premier League and were in Conference League action in midweek, playing out a pretty drab stalemate away at Ajax in the first leg of their round of 16 tie.

Here's 90min's preview of Sunday's pivotal clash at Villa Park.

Aston Villa team news

Ezri Konsa is available despite his dismissal in Amsterdam, although Emery could favour Matty Cash at right-back on Sunday with Konsa moving into a central position.

The hosts are without Jacob Ramsey, who's a recent addition to Villa's lengthy list. Ramsey joins the likes of Jhon Duran, Tyrone Mings, Emiliano Buendia, and Boubacar Kamara on the sidelines.

Leon Bailey and John McGinn are certainties to return to the starting lineup.

Aston Villa predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Villa predicted lineup vs Tottenham (4-2-2-2): Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Torres, Moreno; Luiz, Tielemans; McGinn, Rogers; Bailey, Watkins.

Pedro Porro has recovered from a muscle strain in time for Sunday's game. The right-back has missed Spurs' previous two outings.

Postecoglou will certainly be without Ryan Sessegnon as well as back-up goalkeepers Fraser Forster and Alfie Whiteman. Manor Solomon is also unlikely to feature.

Richarlison is expected to recover quicker than expected from a knee issue, but he surely won't start at Villa Park.

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Aston Villa

Tottenham predicted lineup vs Villa (4-2-3-1): Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Bissouma, Sarr; Kulusevski, Maddison, Werner; Son.

Aston Villa vs Tottenham score prediction

The reverse fixture was pretty thrilling despite Tottenham's litany of absences, and Spurs will feel confident about their chances of securing all three points this weekend.

Villa are excellent at home, but they're dealing with several notable injuries and could be a little worse for wear having played on Thursday night.

Spurs are fresher, but we're still waiting for a statement performance from Postecoglou's side in 2024. This should be a belter with high-quality chances arriving at both ends. When it's all said and done, a sharing of the spoils wouldn't be a surprise.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2-2 Tottenham
