All Premier League fans can look forward to some intriguing matches on January 1st. Tottenham Hotspur will compete against Aston Villa in the titanic match for crucial three points.
The north London team, which has Manchester United chasing after them, will try to secure their place in the Top 4. Spurs’ draw with Brentford prevented them from beginning the second half of the season with a victory.
Meanwhile, Klopp’s Liverpool lost that match because Villa were unable to defeat the Reds. This match may be close throughout because both teams should be striving for victory.
In the match against Brentford, Spurs were up against it. They were down 2-0 after 60 minutes and had only 30 minutes to engineer a comeback.
They were able to snatch a point from this game thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hjbjerg. Coach Antonio Conte will be a little concerned because of how their defence played.
While it was never going to be easy for Aston Villa to compete against Liverpool in their most recent game. Before Ollie Watkins halved the deficit, the Reds had a two-goal lead in the first half. Liverpool added a second goal toward the end of the contest to end it.
Unai Emery will be hoping that his defense manages to stay solid throughout the game as they have shown they can score goals.
Before this game, Tottenham’s World Cup-winning CB Cristian Romero is anticipated to join the team. It might not be likely that he enters the game though!
Rodrigo Bentancur might return from injury, and Conte will greatly benefit from this.
Harry Kane has put his World Cup demons behind him thanks to his goal against Brentford. He’ll be put to the test once more in this game to see if he can keep up his goal-scoring pace.
