LIVE: Tottenham vs Aston Villa | Trezeguet Premier League debut

The Premier League returns later on tonight when Liverpool go head to head with Norwich City, but beyond that, we want to take a look at the late Saturday game between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa.

These two teams represent what it means to be a truly historic club in English football, with both holding accolades that most teams could only dream of possessing. Tomorrow evening, however, that isn’t going to mean a thing, as both teams attempt to register their first three points of the campaign.


While Tottenham’s summer transfer window didn’t go quite as well as many had hoped, they still brought in a few exciting new faces. Plus, when you’re coming off the back of a Champions League final appearance, it’s kind of difficult for the fans to get all too annoyed. Mauricio Pochettino is still at the helm which is obviously a huge plus for the club heading into the new season, and in terms of expectations, we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see them competing for trophies between now and May.

Son will be suspended for this game after his red card at the end of last season, Foyth is out through injury/suspension, and Dier, Aurier and Wanyama will all be assessed before kick-off. Lo Celso isn’t likely to feature either, with Eriksen’s future being in doubt too.

Dean Smith is a man with a plan, with their 12 signings in the last few months leading to a great deal of hope and optimism at Villa Park. Their fans have always felt like they are too big to be competing in the second tier of the English game, and now, they don’t have to worry about that following their Championship Playoff Final victory over Derby County at Wembley. Of course, the big question is whether or not they’ll be able to sustain this momentum as we prepare for the new season.

Nakamba & Luiz aren’t expected to play any role in this game, with Ezri Konsa dealing with a minor injury that ruled him out of the win over Leipzig.
