Aston Villa 2-1

Reason for tip

Aston Villa have won five of their last seven Premier League matches and they could edge a narrow victory over Leicester here, who have plenty of injury issues and have lost four of their last five league matches.

Aston Villa vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Both teams have scored in six of Aston Villa’s last eight games in all competitions
  • Only bottom side Southampton have lost more Premier League games than Leicester
  • Aston Villa have won five of their last seven league matches

Villa progressing under Emery

Since Steven Gerrard’s departure Aston Villa have progressed under new manager Unai Emery and have now won five of their last seven Premier League matches. A shock defeat to Stevenage in the FA Cup was not enough to derail their momentum as the Villans followed it up with back-to-back wins over strugglers Leeds and Southampton.

While some fans of the Midlands club have been a touch disappointed that there has not been further January reinforcements, the squad is clearly progressing under Emery and look set to challenge for a top half finish, something that looked an unlikely possibility just a few months ago.

Foxes’ struggles continue

Leicester looked to have turned the tide after a bad start to the season with a run of four wins from five games before the World Cup break but the Foxes have been in poor form since returning, losing four of their five matches to sit just a point outside of the relegation zone. Brendan Rodgers’ side have added some smart reinforcements in the January window, including Victor Kristiansen and Tete. However they may not be fully tuned up for this clash and they once again have a mounting injury list, including Jamie Vardy.

Goals on the cards at Villa Park

While Unai Emery is known as a more practical coach, his short reign at Aston Villa has seen plenty of goals. Nine of their last 12 games in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals and their opponents here are no strangers to a high-scoring affair. The Foxes are the top scorers in the bottom half of the table with 28 but only Bournemouth had conceded more than their 25 coming into this weekend’s matches. Expect an entertaining clash in this battle of the Midlands.


  • Nine of Aston Villa’s last 12 matches in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals
  • Leicester have taken just nine points from a possible 30 on the road this season
