Tottenham vs Aston Villa Preview
In 2018-19, Tottenham reached the Champions League final, falling to Liverpool 2-0. In Premier League play, they edged Arsenal by a single point to place fourth and return to the UCL.
The Lilywhites won three and lost two in their pre-season slate, ending it with a shootout loss to Inter Milan following a 1-1 regulation draw in International Champions Cup play.
In their biggest move of the offseason, Tottenham sent roughly $66 million to Lyon for French central midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
“The game is there to build our confidence, our business, many things,” manager Mauricio Pocchettino said after the Inter match, according to the team’s official website. “I am positive. I think the team competed very well but still we need to improve in all areas.
“Inter started (pre-season) before us and for us, it was a challenge playing in Singapore, China, and the Audi Cup against tough opposition. That’s why I think we’ve competed well.
“We’re not at 100 percent but we still have one week to be ready to compete in our best way back here next weekend against Aston Villa.
“There were a lot of positives. Tanguy played more than an hour and many players had the possibility to play and to build their fitness, that’s most important for us.”
Aston Villa won 10 consecutive matches late in last year’s EFL Championship campaign to place fifth on the table, and from there they edged West Bromwich Albion and Derby County in the playoffs to earn a return to the Premier League.
They won all six of their pre-season friendlies, surrendering just three goals.
The Lions made numerous key acquisitions this summer ahead of their promotion, including the additions of Brazilian forward Wesley, British defenders Tyrone Mings and Matt Targett, and Egyptian midfielder Trézéguet.
On Thursday, the team announced they’d re-signed Scottish midfielder John McGinn to a five-year contract. He made 40 appearances for the club last season, his first with Aston Villa, and scored six times.
“He’s been very important for the football over the last season — integral to us getting promoted,” manager Dean Smith said, according to Aston Villa’s official website.
“He won multiple Player of the Year awards, such was the standard of his play. He’s certainly merited that contract.
“We want to keep the best players at Aston Villa. We feel that he’s one of them along with Jack Grealish, who has a long-term contract as well as new recruits we have bought in.
“I feel we can develop him even further. He’s really looking forward to the Premier League season and he’s certainly earned it.”
