Tip Reasoning

  • Over 2.5 goals has landed in six of Aston Villa’s last eight games.
  • Leicester have seen at least three goals scored in nine of their last 12 outings.
  • Leicester have played out four 2-2 draws this season.

Villa on a high despite midweek defeat

Steven Gerrard suffered his first defeat as manager of Aston Villa in midweek but a 2-1 loss to the reigning Premier League champions is hardly something to be concerned about and they have a great chance to get some more points on the board when they face Leicester on Sunday.

The Villains broke out of the five-match losing streak that cost Dean Smith his job when Gerrard took charge but it’s not like they had an issue scoring goals before the Liverpool legend’s arrival.

They have scored in ten of their last 11 competitive games and haven’t failed to score at Villa Park all season. Given Leicester’s recent performances, we could be in store for an entertaining match on Sunday.

Foxes’ high-scoring ways continue

The Foxes came from behind twice to secure a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Wednesday, making it three games unbeaten for Brendan Rodgers’ side and also continuing a streak of high-scoring games.

There have been 47 goals scored in Leicester’s 14 Premier League games this season – an average of 3.35 per game – and their last four games in all competitions have yielded a massive 17 goals.

Goals on the cards at Villa Park

The stats point towards a high-scoring affair at Villa Park on Sunday. Aston Villa have seen at least three goals scored in six of their last eight matches and Leicester have in nine of their last 12, so I’m backing overs in this game.

Both of these sides are in relatively good form and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the spoils shared on Sunday. Leicester have drawn six times in all competitions this season and four of those have been 2-2 thrillers, so that’s my choice for a correct score prediction.

James Maddison is worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market, too. The Leicester midfielder has hit his stride in recent weeks with three goals and three assists across his last three appearances, so he looks excellent value to continue his scoring streak.

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, Luiz; Buendia, McGin, Ghazi; Watkins

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall; Perez, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy

  • Both teams have found the net in four of Aston Villa’s last six Premier League home games
  • Leicester have gone unbeaten on five of their last six Premier League road trips
