Spurs’ Under 18 side travel to the Midlands on Saturday to face Aston Villa at their training ground. The game which starts at 12:00pm, is a game which will see Spurs play against the current FA Youth Cup winners, in Aston Villa. Drawing 1-1 and losing 2-0 in competitive meetings with Aston Villa at this level last season, tomorrow’s home side have picked up seven points from seven league games so far this season, and are one point above Spurs in the league. Spurs’ Head Coach Stuart Lewis should be able to welcome back England Under 17 internationals Rio Kyerematen and Jamie Donley back to the Under 18 side for Saturday’s match, after both were recently away with England on international duty. Tomorrow’s game will be another tough one for Spurs, especially as Aston Villa are unbeaten at home in the league this season. I would like to wish the Spurs team all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Hayton, McKnight, Dorrington, Andiyapan, Linton, Cassanova (c), Haysman, Kyerematen, Donley, Owen, Williams.
Subs from: Gunter, Bryan-Waugh, Abbott, Bloxham, Amo-Ameyaw.
Injured/unavailable: Roshaun Mathurin.
Doubtful: Jordan Hackett.
Previous meeting: 1-1
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Dewain Sewell. The Aston Villa player has been involved in nine goals (six goals and three assists) from six league appearances so far this season.
