Reason for Aston Villa vs Leicester City Predictions
Aston Villa and Leicester both arrive into this fixture on the back of potentially disappointing results, Villa pushed Manchester City really close at Villa Park, while Leicester twice pegged back Southampton in a 2-2 draw. For Villa, a defeat by one goal to the champions is hardly disastrous, but they were arguably the better team in the second half, with Steven Gerrard clearly getting plenty out of his players. Since parting company at Liverpool, Gerrard and Rodgers have become the only managers since the 19th century to complete a Scottish league campaign undefeated. They meet for the first time as Premier League managers on Sunday. It’s been seldom in recent games where Aston Villa has managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that Aston Villa has been scored against in 5 of their previous six matches, giving up 11 goals on the way. Ollie Watkins is a great striker, and he scored 14 goals last season. Leon Bailey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
For Leicester, though, their draw against Southampton demonstrated exactly why they are where they are this season, a poor defensive showing twice putting them on the back foot. They still managed to create chances, but it is beginning to feel like one step forward, two steps back for the Foxes this term. Proving their penchant for high-scoring matches, goals have been scored 21 times in the last six games in which Leicester City has taken to the field, making it an average of 3.5 goals each fixture. Their opponents have hit 10 of these goals. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend will be continued in this game. The last league clash between these sides was Premier League matchday 25 on 21/02/2021, which finished with the Foxes’ 2:1 victory. Youri Tielemans plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Kelechi Iheanacho enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw.
We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
