Leicester vs Aston Villa Picks and Predictions

Leicester's downward spiral has rung the alarm bells across the pond, and with in-form Aston Villa coming to town, things might become unbearable for the fans.

Check out our regularly updated Premier League predictions for the latest information and picks.

Draw

Despite being without a win for the past seven matches, and losing six of them in the process, Leicester will have the vision to succeed. Regarding this Leicester vs Aston Villa prediction, the draw seems like a positive outcome that would be welcomed at Leicester because of their recent poor form which caused them to move outside the safety zone, and into the relegation battle. The home team played four draws this season while Aston Villa had one more, and looking at their h2h record, only one out of their past five outings ended with teams splitting the spoils.

Under 2.5 Goals

We are going against the stats, so to speak, for the second prediction in this Leicester vs Aston Villa tie. Leicester had the fourth-most over 2.5 goals matches this season with 17 while Aston Villa played in 14 of those games. On the other hand, Leicester only had two ‘over' matches in the past five matches, the same as the Birmingham team. When it comes to the matches Leicester and Aston Villa played against one another, three out of the past five went over the mark, or rather two remained under three goals. The first match of the current season ended with a 4-2 Leicester win. At this point, Leicester needs to stop leaking goals, and some defensive wisdom is required for this to change.

Team Information, Leicester vs Aston Villa Lineups and Preview

Leicester

After losing to Crystal Palace over the weekend, Leicester dropped beneath the relegation zone line. They are without a win for their past seven matches out of which they lost six. It is another ugly turnaround for the team which has been inconsistent throughout the season. To make matters worse, there are some health concerns for the team: Ryan Bertrand and Youri Tielemenas are injured while Jonny Evans, James Justin, and Jannik Vestergaard are doubtful.

Provisional lineup: Iversen, Kristiansen, Faes, Souttar, Castagne, Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall, Tete, Maddison, Barnes, Daka.

Aston Villa

The Birmingham team doesn't have to worry about relegation, but suddenly they found themselves dreaming about playing in Europe next season. With a stunning win at Stamford Bridge, Aston Villa has accumulated four victories from their last five matches which brought them to only six points from fifth-placed Newcastle. Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho are unavailable for the clash on Tuesday.

Provisional lineup: Martinez, Young, Konsa, Mings, Moreno, McGinn, Kamara, Douglas Luiz, Ramsey, Buendia, Watkins.

Player to Watch: James Maddison

The 26-year-old midfielder who has played for the past five years for Leicester has been the team's best scorer with nine goals, but also a creator of chances delivering six assists to his name. Maddison's stock has risen significantly in the past few years and Leicester management has refused to sell him. However, they won't have a choice but to accept an offer if the team is relegated.
