Tottenham's return back to league play will see Spurs face Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.
If history repeats itself, the trip back to the Premier League will be a smooth one.
Aston Villa hasn't beaten Tottenham since 2008 and these are two completely different teams than they were five years ago. That year, Villa finished sixth in the league table and went on to earn a spot in next season's Europa League. Tottenham was eighth and missed Europa by two points.
Now, Tottenham is riding a three-game win streak with Manchester United as the most recent victim. Aston Villa? They're 15th and just two points out of relegation.
With such a gap acting as a prelude to this match, Tottenham is poised to earn its fourth straight victory—but only if a couple of bold predictions come true.
