“We need to buy two players rather than one and build strength as a team”.

Tottenham will host Aston Villa at Villa Park in Birmingham, England, on May 10 at 10 p.m. ET in the 28th round of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (PL). This match is likely to be a watershed moment in the race for the PL’s top four. Spurs are in desperate need of a win if they hope to return to Europe in fourth place.

Spurs are on 50 points (15 wins, 5 draws, and 6 losses), five points behind Aston Villa (55 points, 17 wins, 4 draws, and 6 losses), who have played one game less. If they win the head-to-head, they can close the gap to two points. A loss, on the other hand, would widen the gap to eight points, putting them in a difficult position where the fight for fourth place is effectively out of reach.

What’s ominous about this is that Tottenham have been weak against Aston Villa recently. They have lost three straight league games. Even under manager Enzi Postecoglou, they were unable to overcome the first-half deficit against Aston Villa, which comes at a time when the Gunners are in good form with three straight league wins.

The good news is that Aston Villa have a Europa League match against Ajax.

It was a tough opponent, and despite fielding a number of first-team players, the 0-0 draw halted the momentum. 스포츠토토 Tottenham will be able to field a full-strength squad, with the possible exception of Heung-Min Son.

This is the kind of game where we need Son Heung-min to step up. This season, Son has been on fire with 13 goals and six assists in the league. His main position is left winger, but he can also play as a center forward in some situations, making him a master key for the team. Against Villa, he is expected to start up front in the absence of an injury to the Frenchman.

‘Now in his tenth year at Tottenham, Son Heung-min has been given the captaincy ahead of this season. New manager Enzi Postecoglou has handed the captain’s armband to Hugo Llorente instead, opting for a trio of Heung-min, James Maddison and Cristian Romero. Son is the first non-European player to captain Tottenham since the club was founded in 1882.

His contract with Tottenham expires in June 2025,

And he has already proven himself to be both a player and a leader. That means he has just one year left at the end of this season. However, there is an option for a one-year extension that can be exercised by the club, meaning he has two years left. Tottenham are moving quickly to re-sign Son to fend off interest from the Saudi Arabian league.

Manager Angie Postecoglou emphasized that Spurs needed to strengthen in the summer transfer window. But there was a threshold. Rather than spending £100 million on a single player, the club should bring in several players to strengthen their overall depth.

“We are still lacking in many areas,” Postecoglou said. In terms of team solidity, adaptability and compatibility, the whole squad needs to be strengthened,” he said, adding, “We don’t need one or two expensive players to get to where we want to be (winning). We need to improve going forward.”

“Tottenham is a club that spends wisely, and we will continue to try to grow and develop the team. But we are not yet in a position to spend £100 million on one player. We did well in the previous transfer window, but now I would rather buy two players than one £100 million player.”
