Leicester City vs Aston Villa Predictions

  • Leicester are winless across their last seven games, losing six times during that run.
  • Aston Villa won without reply in four of their last five matches.
  • Four of Aston Villa’s last five Premier League games have had fewer than three goals.
  • Six of Ollie Watkins’ seven goals across his last nine appearances were match openers.

Ten games to save the Foxes’ skin

Brendan Rodgers shown himself out of Leicester City following the latest defeat, a 2-1 loss to Roy Hodgson’s Palace, in their current seven-game winless run. That sequence has left them in the bottom-three ahead of this midweek round with no real escape route in sight given the difficulty of their ten-game run-in.

Another damning stat regarding Leicester is the fact they’ve dropped more points from leading positions than any other PL side, a return which stands at a mammoth 22! Failing to keep a clean sheet in 13 straight league games hasn’t been helpful in that regard, so it’s really difficult to make a case for the flailing Foxes in this encounter.

Vibrant Villa are on a roll

Aston Villa have been a side transformed under Unai Emery, continuing their excellent progress with a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday in a result which spelled the end of Graham Potter’s tenure! That made it four wins from the last five rounds, only Arsenal have picked up more points during that time.

Unlike their hosts, the Villains have no problem keeping clean sheets on the road as they’ve shown when winning four of their last six PL away games without reply. The visitors must be wary after losing the reverse fixture in emphatic fashion (4-2), although the contrasting trajectories points us in only one direction.

The Villa boys will be making all the noise

Considering Leicester’s problems both on and off the pitch, we simply can’t back them to win here against a rampant Aston Villa side who still have an outside shot at making the European places. As such, we’re backing the visitors to come out on top with confidence.

For smaller stakes, a 2-0 win will do for our correct score prediction with each of Villa’s last four away wins coming via a slender 1-0 or 2-0 margin.

Finally, we’re backing the man in form to get on the scoresheet once again, Villa’s Ollie Watkins opened the scoring in the reverse H2H, has scored seven times and assisted another goal across his last nine appearances.
