The new, state-of-art Tottenham Hotspur Stadium saw its first action in April, as The Inquisitr reported, but on Saturday the gleaming new facility will host its first-ever English Premier League season opener when Spurs host Aston Villa, who will be playing their first top-flight match since 2016. But for the Spurs, the ceremony of opening a new season at a new stadium will take a back seat to the basic need to collect three points, after a fourth-place finish in 2018-2019 in which a single point separated them from missing out on Champions League play — a potential disaster in the first full season in the $1.2 billion new stadium. Spurs will go for that victory in the match that will live stream from their new home.
To find out how to watch a live stream of Saturday’s Tottenham Hotspur vs. Aston Villa Premier League season opener, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. British Summer Time on Saturday, August 10, at the brand new 62,000-seat Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Tottenham, London, England.

Spurs showed a level of commitment to moving up the table, making their first transfer signings after two windows of idleness, inking Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, as well as, on deadline day from Fulham, winger Ryan Sessegnon, per Yahoo! Sports. But Sessegnon will remain unavailable for Saturday’s match.
Tottenham, as a matter of fact, will field a significantly weakened side against the Villans, as Dele Alli, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Juan Foyth, and Son Heung-min are all sidelined with injuries, per the BBC.
After winning promotion by defeating Derby County in the Championship playoff final, Aston Villa went on a signing spree — highlighted by the acquisition of 22-year-old Brazilian Wesley Moraes from Belgium’s Club Brugge — who scored 17 across all competitions for the Belgian titans last season, according to 90min.com, including two in Brugge’s stunning UEFA Champions League upset of AS Monaco. Wesley will be on the pitch for Saturday’s match.
