Aston Villa vs Leicester Predictions


Leicester are tipped to leave Villa Park with all three points, but it will be a tight match given that both sides are performing above expectations this season. 

The Foxes are tipped to edge the Midlands derby with BTTS to score.

  • Leicester are undefeated 14 of their last 15 matches (all competitions).
  • Leicester are undefeated in their last 7 away matches (Premier League).
  • Leicester won 8 of their 12 away matches this season (Premier League).
  • Leicester have scored in 10 of their 12 away matches this season (Premier League).
  • Leicester have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 6 away matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have lost 5 of their last 9 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head


Leicester hold a 43-35 head to head advantage over Aston Villa, with the two sides drawing 25 of their 103 competitive meetings. 

On loan Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley scored a 90th minute winner for Villa during their 1-0 victory over Leicester earlier this season. 

Aston Villa Form


Dean Smith’s side already have more points than they achieved last season. 

But they are currently on their worst run of form of the season, winning just three of their last nine games.

Emiliano Martinez has kept the second most clean sheets in the Premier League with 12, two of which came in Villa’s recent 1-0 victory over Arsenal and 0-0 draw with Brighton.

Top scorer Ollie Watkins has scored three goals in his last five Premier League games and will be crucial for Villa's hopes.

Aston Villa Injuries & Team News


Villa are missing both Wesley and Kourtney Hause to long-term injuries, but the key player missing on Sunday will be first choice right-back Matty Cash. 

That will likely see veteran right-back Ahmed Elmohamady deputise. He has played just 158 minutes of Premier League football this season. 

Following their 0-0 draw with Brighton, Smith may rotate his offensive options, but Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins are certain to start.

Leicester Form


The Foxes are on a brilliant run in the Premier League, losing just one of their last 11 matches.

That has included wins over Tottenham, Chelsea, and Liverpool. They beat the defending champions 3-1 at home last weekend.

Leicester's goals are coming from English trio Jamie Vardy, Marcus Maddison, and Harvey Barnes, who have scored 11 goals between them during the recent run.

Within that spell, Kasper Schmeichel has kept five clean sheets, two of which came during Leicester previous two away matches.

On Thursday night, the Foxes drew 0-0 with Slavia Prague in the first leg of the Europa League tie.

Leicester Injuries & Team News


Brendan Rodgers has a number of players ruled out, with James Justin, Wesley Fofana, Dennis Praet, Ayoze Perez and Wes Morgan all sidelined. 

A major boost for Leicester could be the return of Timothy Castagne, who is likely to replace Daniel Amartey. That will allow Ricardo Pereira to return to right-back. 

Bar that change, it is likely Rodgers’s team will be similar to the one that beat Liverpool 3-1 last week.

Verdict

I think Matty Cash’s injury will prove highly influential as Villa do not possess the same depth as Leicester to cope with defensive injuries.
 
Given both sides are excellent going forward, a Leicester win with both teams to score seems a value bet.
