The win over Wolves means Spurs have it in their own hands to finish sixth, though the club’s preparation for the final week of the season, and the return of fans for the first time since December, have been hit by reports that Kane has asked to leave the club.
West Ham, level on points with their rivals, are ready to pounce on any slip-ups from their London neighbours and have the kinder run-in on paper.

Tottenham vs Aston Villa prediction
These two teams only met in March due to a Covid rescheduling and Spurs left Birmingham as fairly comfortable winners.
Jack Grealish is back, and his impact on the team is immeasurable, but I expect another fairly routine win for a Spurs team who will not want speculation over Harry Kane’s future to impact their performances. 2-0 home win.
