Spurs’ Under 18 side will welcome Aston Villa on Saturday to Hotspur Way (the game starts at 12:00pm), in a Premier League South game. Spurs impressively won 7-0 against Birmingham City in their last Premier League South game, last Saturday. Spurs won 3-1 away to Aston Villa in the reverse league fixture earlier in the season, and Aston Villa at this level this season are currently in 12th place in the Premier League South, two places behind Spurs in the league. Spurs will be without five players for the game on Saturday, because of the current international break in the football calendar. However, this will likely be a good opportunity for some of the players who haven’t played a lot of games this season to get some game time. I would like to wish the team all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: Maguire, Abbott, Dorrington, Sayers (c), Hackett-Valton, Willhoft-King, Heaps, McKnight, Amo-Ameyaw, Owen, Williams.
Subs from: Krasniqi, Chaplin, Linton, Hall, Irow.
Injured/unavailable: Renaldo Torraj (international call-up), Rio Kyerematen (international call-up), Jamie Donley (international call-up, Will Andiyapan (international call-up), Thomas Bloxham (international call-up).
Previous meeting: Spurs 3-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Dewain Sewell. The Aston Villa player has scored nine Premier League South goals, and provided four assists so far this season.
