Aston Villa v Leicester City preview
The home side will be looking to continue their resurgence under new manager Steven Gerrard with a win over the Foxes. They were beaten by Manchester City at home in their last Premier League outing and the home side will be hoping to bounce back strongly.
Prior to the defeat against City, they managed to pick up wins over Brighton and Crystal Palace. Aston Villa have undoubtedly shown improvement under Gerrard and it will be interesting to see if they can grind out all three points here.
Leicester were held to a 2-2 draw against Southampton in their last league outing and they will be hoping to pull off an impressive away win and close in on the top four.
