Leicester – Aston Villa : Preview & Prediction
Leicester City must protect its place on the podium, a 3rd place that also covets Chelsea 5 units behind. The current 3rd in the Premier League should not miss the opportunity to beat the penultimate, Aston Villa, at King Power Stadium. Vardy’s partners (17 goals) returned to the FA Cup victory against Birmingham (1-0) this Wednesday evening after taking only 2 points in the last 4 league days. Leicester City had 2 good draws against Chelsea (2-2) and Wolverhampton (0-0) before conceding 2 losses against Manchester City (0-1) and Norwich City (1-0). Nothing is going well anymore for Aston Villa who has swung into the relegation zone due to 3 defeats in the last 3 days of the Premier League in Bournemouth (2-1), against Tottenham (2-3) and Southampton (2-0 ). The Villans continued their poor streak by getting out of the League Cup at home by Manchester City (1-2) on March 1. Unable to win an away game after 5 last trips, all competitions combined, Aston Villa should have little illusion on the lawn of the 3rd!
Leicester City is 3rd in the Premier League.
Aston Villa is 19th overall.
Leicester City has 2 successes and 1 draw in the last 3 receptions of Aston Villa, all competitions combined.
