Team Preview 

Aston Villa hosts Leeds United to Villa Park on Friday night to take the top spot from Everton. Both clubs will face each other after 16 years, the last game was played in February 2004. Villa are unbeaten in this season with four wins out of four, including a 7-2 victory over Liverpool. In the previous encounter, they edged past in-form Leicester City. They are placed second and if they avoid defeat or play a draw, they will take the top spot. They are going to grab this opportunity after 2011. Dean Smith's side is having a dream start to their Premier League campaign and victory on Friday will ensure that it would be the first time in their club history when they won their first five opening fixtures. 

Meanwhile, newly-promoted Leeds suffered their first major defeat on Monday night against Wolves. They also lost to Liverpool in the opening fixture but their game was top class as they scored 3 goals against a strong defense. With playing a draw against City, Whites have gained good confidence. Marcelo Bielsa's side has won two and drawn one from their 5 games. Sitting at the middle in the table, Leeds have impressed with their game. Taking points against an in-form side will take them to 3rd spot for a shorter period. In their last away game, they defeated Sheffield United, courtesy of Patrick Bamford goal.
