Leicester vs Aston Villa Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Aston Villa turn their attention to Premier League survival as they face Leicester in a Monday night clash at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes can build on their FA Cup victory over Birmingham and consolidate their top four place.

Leicester Form


Leicester finally returned to winning ways as they claimed a 1-0 victory over Birmingham in the FA Cup fifth round. Having laboured for much of the contest, Ricardo Pereira struck the winner eight minutes from time.

The Foxes have stumbled in recent weeks but are still on course to secure a top four finish. Brendan Rodgers’ men often do their best work at home with a 4-1 victory over West Ham and a 2-0 triumph against Arsenal among their results at King Power Stadium.

Leicester have been shaky at the back having kept just one clean sheet in their last seven Premier League matches.

Leicester vs Aston Villa Match Up 


Leicester will undoubtedly be boosted by the return of top scorer Jamie Vardy who netted a brace in the reverse fixture at Villa Park. The Foxes have several attacking threats in the team with Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho who have been among the goals lately. 

The problem for Leicester is an inability to keep things tight at the back having conceded in six of their last seven matches. They will face some trouble from Jack Grealish and Mbwana Samatta who was on target last time out against Man City.
