Foot Predictions shows Sunday’s Premier League clash between Aston Villa and Leicester City, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Villa Aston host Leicester City on Sunday afternoon in search of the victory that would keep the club in search of places in the Champions League.
While Villa starts the weekend in eighth position in the Premier League table, visitors take the short trip to the West Midlands in third position, after defeating Liverpool last weekend.
Despite having to deal with a number of injury problems, Brendan Rodgers decided to choose a team with all the strength for the Europa League game against Slavia Prague.
However, the calculated bet did not work, as the Foxes drew goalless, leaving Rodgers with a similar approach in the second leg next Thursday.
With a quarter of the top four in the Premier League still the club’s top priority, Rodgers is unlikely to leave any of his key men in a meeting with one of his rivals.
In addition to their late explosion against Liverpool, the Foxes have been fighting in the last third of the afternoon, a period that coincided with Jamie Vardy still regaining pace after hernia surgery.
However, Rodgers will be delighted with the way his team has performed in the defensive areas, despite having to deal with injuries from Wesley Fofana and James Justin.
Facing Villa away from home, with two and a half days of rest, represents a different challenge for the Foxes, mainly because Villa did not concede consecutive goals.
While Dean SmithThe ‘team had one of the worst performances of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend, but still got a share of the spoils.
Still with games ahead and a favorable game list, Villa is optimistic that he can advance quickly in the leaderboard in the coming weeks.
Despite having participated in 16 Premier League goals this season, Jack Grealish scored only once in all competitions since the end of November.
