Follow all the action as Aston Villa host Leicester City in the Premier League this afternoon.
Dean Smith’s side are still within touching distance of the top six, even if their form has become a little inconsistent as of late, with three wins and as many defeats in their last seven league games. The Villans lacked adventure in a goalless draw against Brighton last time out, relying on Emiliano Martinez’s heroics in goal to secure a point on the south coast. They are more than capable of causing an upset against Leicester, though, with Ross Barkley snatching all three points in stoppage time when the two sides met in October.
Leicester come into the fixture in fine form, though, having produced a sensational comeback in the space of seven minutes against champions Liverpool last time out. Jamie Vardy has returned from a hernia operation, although the Foxes failed to find the net in the first leg of their Europa League tie against Slavia Prague on Thursday. After narrowly missing out last season, Brendan Rodgers is intent on securing a top-four finish, with the Foxes currently 10 points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
