AVL vs TOT Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups
Tottenham Hotspur start their new Premier League season with a home game against newly-promoted side Aston Villa.
Mauricio Pochettino has established Spurs as a top-top team in England, and they are once again expected to qualify for the Champions League.
That said, with every transfer window, the teams, especially the traditional big teams, are becoming stronger, with an aim to break into the top-four. There is no guarantee now, for any team, irrespective of the profile or the past achievements, they have to start every season from scratch.
Arsenal have added a good bunch of players to their roster, and then there are Chelsea and Manchester United, who are eternal rivals for the top four.
But with no big-name player leaving this summer, Pochettino has the big foundations to make the upcoming season a memorable one.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa are returning to the top tier of English football after a while. Their first target must be to pass the first season hurdle.
The Premier League match will be played between Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in London. The ground has a capacity of 62,062. The game will start at 10:00 PM (IST), on Saturday, August 10.

Spurs will be without a host of first-team stars for the season opener against Aston Villa.
Dele Alli, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Juan Foyth, Cameron Carer-Vickers and deadline day signing Ryan Sessegnon all miss out with injuries.
While Pochettino will have to make do without Son Heung-Min, as the South Korean superstar is suspended following his red card in 1-0 win over Bournemouth last season.
In addition, right-back Serge Aurier is still struggling with a knee problem that kept him out of Tottenham's pre-season and looks set to miss the match.

New signings Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are in line to make their debut here.
Midfielders Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama are back in full training and are available for selection.
Though, we expect Harry WInks to start the match alongside Moussa Sissoko in the midfield.
With Son out with an injury, Lucas Moura will support Harry Kane in the attack.
