Leeds vs Aston Villa Predictions


Leeds have been every Premier League fans' second team this season through their high scoring matches. This one should follow a similar theme with Villa missing the instrumental Jack Grealish.

  • Leeds have won their last 2 home matches (Premier League).
  • Leeds have scored 2+ goals in 5 of their last 7 matches (Premier League).
  • Leeds have seen over 2.5 goals in 2 of their last 3 home matches (Premier League).
  • Leeds' Raphina has scored in 2 of his last 3 home matches (Premier League).
  • Leeds are undefeated in their last 6 home matches against Aston Villa (all competitions).
  • Aston Villa have won 1 of their last 4 matches (Premier League).
  • Aston Villa have lost 3 of their last 5 away matches (Premier League).

Head-to-Head


Aston Villa hold a 39-32 head-to-head advantage over Leeds, with the two sides drawing 30 of their 101 competitive meetings.

Leeds beat Aston Villa 3-0 back in October, with striker Patrick Bamford scoring a hat-trick at Villa Park.

Leeds Form


An impressive 3-0 win against Southampton on Tuesday pushed Leeds up to 10th in the Premier League and clear of any relegation fight.

Second-half goals from Patrick Bamford, Stuart Dallas ans Raphina made it back-to-back home wins for Marcelo Bielsa's side.

Leeds had also beaten Crystal Palace 2-0 at Elland Road, although they followed that with away defeats at Arsenal 4-2 and Wolves 1-0.

Leeds very rarely draw, and are an all-or-nothing team. But one thing that has generally been consistent is their ability to score goals. 

Leeds Injuries & Team News


Marcelo Bielsa’s side will be without defenders Robin Koch and Gaetano Berardi, midfielder Adam Forshaw and forward Ian Poveda on Saturday.

Midfielder Kalvin Phillips and forward Rodrigo also remain sidelined, while midfielder Mateusz Klich is a doubt after coming off injured against Southampton.

Aston Villa Form


Dean Smith’s side are on their worst run of the season, with just one win in their last four matches.

Villa have lost six of their last 10 matches in all competitions and are failing to match their form from the start of the season.

They were beaten 2-1 at home to Leicester last Sunday with Bertrand Traore's second-half goal nothing more than a consolation.

Villa have already achieved more points than last season, so Premier League safety appears secure for Villa.

Aston Villa Injuries & Team News


The most significant absence for Dean Smith’s team is likely to be talisman Jack Grealish, who is a major doubt. 

Right-back Matty Cash’s injury means veteran full-back Ahmed Elmohamady will once again deputise. He struggled massively against Leciester’s Harvey Barnes at the weekend. 

Grealish’s absence removes Villa’s key source of creativity, but Smith will be hoping one of Anwar El Ghazi or Trezeguet can step up.

Verdict

I am backing Leeds to do the double over Aston Villa. Without Jack Grealish, Villa lose both their captain and main source of creativity.
