Aston Villa v Leicester City Preview, Premiership, Saturday 16th January 2016.

Saturday evenings game is going to be a special one as home side Aston Villa are in relegation survival mode and now face an extremely tough test against joint top side Leicester City. It appears to be that Aston Villa are getting prepared for life in the Championship and at one thought had very little fight in them until their rare midweek victory against high flying Crystal Palace. Having struggled last weekend against Wycombe Wanderers who would of expected them to win a game against Palace who certainly are not the easiest sides to beat this season. Is this the win they need to help them fight back the major points deficit to get out of the relegation battle? I highly doubt it as Leicester City are surely set to destroy Villa come Saturday evening.

Leicester City almost embarrassed Tottenham Hotspurs at White Hart Lane last weekend when the two met in the FA Cup 3rd Round. Only for Spurs to fight back and earn a 2 – 2 draw come the end of the match. But then midweek happened where the two met again and at the same venue, in which Leicester City managed to walk away with all three points thus bringing them level once more atop the table with Arsenal. This Saturdays fixture against bottom club Villa will surely see the Foxes win the game and go top for the time being until Arsenal face Stoke City away from home Sunday afternoon. After that they then host Tottenham Hotspurs in the FA Cup 3rd round replay in hopes of another win against the London club, taking them into the 4th round to face Colchester United away.

Aston Villa Team News:

Aston Villa still have a large number of injuries which wont be helping their Premier League survival too much as Jordan Amavi and Traore Adama are still missing for action. Also there are doubts over the fitness of Alan Hutton and Carlos Sanchez.

Leicester City Team News:

Good news for Leicester City is that manager Claudio Ranieri almost has a full squad to choose from come Saturday, with only Jeffrey Schlupp and Matthew James a doubt due to match fitness.

Leicester City have finally won a game this year as the last three games have seen them draw against Manchester City, Bournemouth and Spurs in the FA Cup. This win against Tottenham Hotspurs in the league does see them level with Arsenal at the top of the table and a win against Villa will no doubt keep up the pressure as Arsenal then travel to Stoke come Sunday.

The Draw would be a great result for Aston Villa on Saturday as a point against joint top is certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

Aston Villa v Leicester City Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Premiership action on Sky Sports 1 High Definition this Saturday comes live from the Midlands with bottom of the league Aston Villa set to face joint top Leicester City in what can only be described as a potential exciting game of football with plenty of goals scored. Aston Villa’s last win in the league came all the way back in the first game of the season when they managed to take points off of newcomers Bournemouth with a 1 – 0 away win. They did manage a couple of Capital One Cup wins until they were knocked out against Southampton in October.

Leicester City themselves have only lost three times this season, with two of these in the Premier League against Arsenal and Liverpool. A set of results that can’t be seen as embarrassing as Leicester City have shocked the world of football with them going head to head at the top of the biggest league in the world. Especially with them coming close to relegation last season, a fact that is now seeming so distant as the club look to finish this season in the top four and in a Champions League spot finish.

My predictions for this game do of course back that of Leicester City to win with ease, as I seriously can’t see Aston Villa beating the likes of Leicester in this game even though they are at home. My banker is going to be Leicester City to win the game with ease and while doing so concede zero goals in the process. The next I am going for is new signing Demarai Gray to score during the game and of course Leicester City to win the game at the end of ninety minutes.
