Leicester v Aston Villa: match preview

on 17 October 2020

Leicester thrashed Aston Villa 4-0 at the King Power in the last match before the Premier League shutdown in March but Villa have been transformed since then. Dean Smith will probably start with only four of the players who featured in March and will be hoping to see a performance more like the one that brought that sensational 7-2 victory over Liverpool in their last outing. Injury-ravaged Leicester will have to play much better than against West Ham to avoid a second successive home league defeat. Paul Doyle
