With Saturday’s upcoming Aston Villa-Tottenham Spurs matchup looming, a lot of attention has been placed on Aston Villa manager, Tim Sherwood.
Sherwood’s time as boss at White Hart Lane has become an interesting story-line going into Saturday. Indeed, just one year ago, Sherwood was roaming the sideline for the Spurs.
Come Saturday, Sherwood will be opposing his former club as his Aston Villa team clashes with the Spurs.
While Sherwood is looking forward to a reunion with his former club, Saturday’s battle at White Hart Lane features many implications for Villa. They currently sit just three points above the Premier League relegation line. They need to play well against the Spurs in order to tread water and avoid falling into the bottom three.
Meanwhile, the Spurs are sitting pretty in the Premier League standings, holding a solid 6th position as the final month and a half of football approaches. However, they wouldn’t mind putting a dent into Villa’s bid for survival, especially with their former boss on the opposing sideline.
