Jamie Redknapp predicts Tottenham vs Aston Villa result

White Hart Lane 5

Tottenham Hotspur host manager-less Aston Villa on Monday.

Former player Jamie Redknapp is backing Tottenham Hotspur to keep up their good form and beat Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday, he wrote in his column for Sky Sports.

Spurs head into the encounter boasting the longest unbeaten run, a far cry from the situation at Villa as the visitors have instead not won in nine Premier League matches, losing eight of them.

The Villains’ disastrous run has cost Tim Sherwood his job, and the new manager whether it’s Remi Garde or somebody else has a massive job on their hands in stopping the rot.

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Redknapp has been impressed with Spurs this season and feels they will be too strong for Villa, citing it as a good opportunity for Harry Kane to get among the goals.

“Spurs have got themselves into a really good position, given Chelsea's stuttering start, and they'll be looking to kick-on with another win on Monday night,” Redknapp wrote.

“Villa are bottom of the league and they'll be beaten again on Monday. They are playing the wrong team at the wrong time and they don't have a manager.”

“For Spurs and Harry Kane, this is a great opportunity to take advantage.”

Can Villa pull off a surprise?

Villa, manager-less and low on confidence, do possess a quality players in certain areas of their team but the trouble they have is getting everyone on the same page working in unison.

They look terribly disjointed, a factor which has caused them to struggle from a creative perspective.

Spurs boast one of the best defensive records in the Premier League, therefore it’s difficult to envisage how Villa are going to cause them problems without leaving themselves open at the back.
