Spurs under 18’s versus Aston Villa: (match preview)
Our under 18’s will take on seventh place Aston Villa in the Premier League South on Saturday lunchtime. Spurs come into this game on the back of an impressive 6-1 win over Southampton and they’ll be hoping to make it two wins from two. Spurs have won at Aston Villa’s Bodymoor Heath training ground in two of the last three seasons, and last season they won 3-2. Some of Aston Villa’s danger men include top scorer Jaden Philogene-Bidace and Aaron Ramsey who had a particularly good game in the reverse fixture at Hotspur Way earlier in the season when the ‘ Villains ’ won 4-2, in a game in which they dominated for large periods. I shall be travelling up to Tamworth to report on Saturday’s game and I would like to wish the lads all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Kurylowicz, Lusala, Muir, Skinner, Hackett, Matthew Craig, John, Bennett, Robson, Cooper, Etete (c).
Subs from: Lo-Tutala, Kyezu, Santiago, Pedder, Whittaker.
Injured/unavailable: Dennis Cirkin, Michael Craig.
Doubtful: Enock Asante, Dane Scarlett.
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-4.
My score prediction: Spurs 3-1.
My one to watch: The ‘ Villains ’ top scorer this season with seven goals from ten league games Jaden Philogene-Bidace.
