Leeds vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Leeds have lost their last five Premier League games, failing to score in four of them.
  • Aston Villa have won their last two games to nil.
  • Villa have won two of their last three Premier League away days.

Leeds fall to defeat despite improved performance

Leeds may have looked an improved side under new manager Jesse Marsch but that didn’t stop them falling to a 1-0 defeat at Leicester at the weekend and with the fixtures coming thick and fast it’s likely to take a bit of time before the Whites’ players are familiar with Marsch’s tactics.

That defeat made it five on the spin for Leeds and seven games without a victory, leaving them just two points above the relegation zone and with the two teams directly below them harbouring games in hand.

Villans can push into the top ten

For Aston Villa, this is a fantastic opportunity for Steven Gerrard to build on a recent revival.

They thrashed Southampton 4-0 for Gerrard’s biggest win since joining Aston Villa, following on from a 2-0 win at Brighton to lift them up to 11th and put them well clear of any relegation battle.

There is no denying that Gerrard has improved this Villa side. They have taken 23 points from 15 games under the former Liverpool captain’s tutelage, while prior to his arrival they had managed just ten points from 11 matches this season.

Back the visitors for success

With Leeds on a poor run of six defeats in their last seven and without a win at Elland Road since the start of January I’m backing Villa to make it three in a row on Thursday.

A repeat of their last trip away looks on the cards for a correct score prediction, too. They have conceded just two goals in their last four and only one in their last three away games, while Leeds have failed to score in three successive league matches and conceded 11 goals in the process, so a 2-0 scoreline is my bet.

Leeds predicted lineup: Meslier; Dallas, Ayling, Struijk, Firpo; Koch, Klich; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; James

Aston Villa predicted lineup: Martinez; Cash, Chambers, Mings, Young; McGinn, Luiz, Ramsey; Coutinho; Ings, Watkins

  • There have been less than three goals in four of Aston Villa’s last six Premier League games
  • Aston Villa are on a run of two wins to nil in the Premier League
