Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has this evening provided a positive update on his squad, ahead of the club’s season opener this weekend
Tottenham vs Aston Villa
The new Premier League campaign is set to get underway at Anfield tomorrow evening, when last season’s runners-up, Liverpool, host top-flight newcomers Norwich City.
This will be followed by a host of fixtures on Saturday afternoon, one of which will see another of the English top-flight’s latest returnees, Aston Villa, take on Tottenham.
Spurs enjoyed a busy close to the transfer window over the last 24 hours, having secured the signings of both Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day.
The north Londoners’ latest pair of recruits came on the back of their previous additions of Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke, with spirits no doubt high amongst the Tottenham camp ahead of their season opener.
