Aston Villa vs Leicester City Preview
Leicester’s aspirations of finishing in the Champions League places are still going strong after their 3-1 win over Liverpool last time out, taking their tally to five wins from eight games in 2021 – more than any other side except leaders Manchester City.
The 0-0 draw at Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday means they have now kept four clean sheets in their last five games in all competitions – albeit largely against some of the lower-scoring sides in the division.
It does seem likely that Villa will find the net considering they have done so in nine of their last 11 Premier League games, but they have only scored more than once in two of their last nine top-flight fixtures.
Aston Villa vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions
Villa’s defence has also been strong in recent weeks with three clean sheets in their last four games and opposing both teams to score at 6/5 (2.20) with bet365 looks to be the way to go in this Premier League clash.
This selection has paid out in four of Leicester’s last five games and in five of the most recent seven that Smith’s men have contested.
