Which Leicester City will turn up when the Foxes host Aston Villa in a Midlands derby at the King Power Stadium on Sunday? Leicester have put in two vastly differing performances and take on a Villa side which hit champions Liverpool for seven.

Leicester Form


Leicester followed a brilliant 5-2 victory over Manchester City with a dismal 3-0 home defeat to West Ham prior to the international break. Coach Brendan Rodgers will be expecting a reaction on Sunday.

A Jamie Vardy hat-trick formed part of a five-star Foxes win at the Etihad. It followed wins over West Brom (3-0) and Burnley (4-2) to start the season with a 100% record.

That was ended in dramatic fashion in Leicester's last game as they produced a no-show to go down 3-0 at home to West Ham. 

Leicester Team News


Wilfried Ndidi and Ricardo Pereira remain on the sidelines with injury. Defender Filip Benkovic in also unavailable for Brendan Rodgers' side.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa may have survived relegation on the final day of last season, but they have started this campaign with three wins from three Premier League games.

Dean Smith's side had looked solid in their opening 1-0 win over Sheffield United. They stepped up in a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Fulham, only to then lose 1-0 at home to Stoke and exit the Carabao Cup.

Little was expected against Liverpool at Villa Park, but Villa shocked the Premier League with a 7-2 win over the champions. An Ollie Watkins first-half hat-trick got the ball rolling before Jack Grealish ended things with two goals of his own. 

Aston Villa Team News


Long-term absentees Tom Heaton and Wesley are both unavailable. Bjorn Engels will have a late test.
