Leicester City vs Aston Villa, Premier League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Underdogs Aston Villa continues their winning streak in Premier League 2020-21 with a weekend clash with Leicester City. 

Match Timings: Oct 18, 11:45 PM

Team Preview 

Aston Villa reaches at the King Power Stadium on Sunday’s fixture against strong Leicester City. The Villains are having a dream season, with winning three games out of three. The historical 7-2 victory against the current champion Liverpool put Villa on cloud nine and they would aim to extend their dream run. Ollie Watkins netted a first-half hat-trick helped Dean Smith's side to record one of the most surprising outcomes ever in Premier League. Villa’s campaign started with back-to-back victories against Sheffield United and Fulham without conceding a goal and this streak helped them to get the third spot in the table. Liverpool played a draw last night with Everton to grab the 2nd spot but Dean Smith’s men will take it back tonight if they manage to get at least one point. 

Meanwhile, Leicester City lost their first game against West Ham 3-0 after winning three consecutive matches. They have a fine opportunity at home to take the 2nd spot in the table. The Foxes claimed a 5-2 win away at Manchester City to score 12 goals in just three matches. The defeat against the Hammers at the King Power Stadium gave Brendon Rodger enough time to fix their errors during the international break. The Foxes have a good record against Villa with losing just one game of their 11 Premier League at home.
