    Tottenham to secure sixth with victory over Aston Villa

    Probable Lineups:

    tottenham v villaTottenham Hotspur (4-4-2): Lloris, Naughton, Dawson, Vertonghen, Rose, Lennon, Paulinho, Chadli, Eriksen, Kane, Adebayor

    A 2-0 away loss to West Ham United last weekend has given Manchester United a window to steal sixth place if the Lilywhites lose to Aston Villa. Although three points in front, United have a much better goal difference to that of Spurs. Expect Tim Sherwood, who may not be manager come August, to field a strong lineup to guarantee his side are in the Europa League next season. Harry Kane has been in decent form of late – the young striker notching three goals in five appearances – and is expected to partner Emmanuel Adebayor up front.

    Aston Villa (5-3-2): Guzan, Lowton, Baker, Vlaar, Clark, Bertrand, Westwood, Delph, El Ahmadi, Agbonlahor, Weimann

    Aston Villa went to the Etihad during midweek without much expectations of a result, and were thrashed 4-0. However the Villans are guaranteed safety in the top flight next season and will go into this fixture without much pressure. Coach Paul Lambert could field some youngsters for experience, but with several key players out injured, expect a similar lineup to the one that started against Man City last time out. Gabriel Agbonglahor and Marc Albrighton could recover from knocks in time for the final Premier League clash this season.

    Remember this?

    We blame the linesman sometimes for their mistakes. But this is taking it way too far!

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    While Villa have not much other than pride to play for, Spurs know they can not lose this game in the case Man United win theirs. Michael Dawson and his back-line will be expected by Sherwood to hold it tight, and clean-sheet points could be on the cards for Fantasy Football managers.

    Tottenham Hotspur vs. Aston Villa: An Alternative Preview

    Against no Barclays Premier League side has Emmanuel Adebayor scored more Barclays Premier League goals than he has against Aston Villa (six).

    The Villans are without a win in 10 league games against Spurs, drawing three, losing seven and scoring just five times.

    Tottenham Hotspur have won on the final day of the season in each of the last three Premier League campaigns – all of which have been played at White Hart Lane.

    Should Spurs win this match, they’ll equal their highest number of wins in a single Premier League season (21 in 2009-10 and 2012-13).

    Spurs are the only side to not score in the opening 15 minutes of a Premier League game this season.

    Only one team in Premier League history (Crystal Palace in 1994-95) have gone through an entire season without scoring in the opening 15 minutes.

    21 of Spurs’ 37 Premier League games this season have been played on a Sunday – no side have ever played 22 in a single season on a Sunday.

    Aston Villa have currently won 497 points away from home in the Premier League. If they win this match, they’ll be the fifth side in Premier League history to have won 500 away points.

    Tottenham have seen more players net a Premier League goal for them than any other side this season (18).

    In contrast, Villa have seen the smallest spread of players score a Premier League goal for them this season (10).
