Leicester City v Aston Villa Tips – Foxes will edge their way to another three points
Leicester City will continue their excellent season with a home win on Sunday
September 11th, 2015
The Foxes ended last season on a high note, moving themselves clear of relegation by winning all but two of their last nine games. They have started 2015/16 in similar fashion and sit third in the table following two wins and two draws.
It looks set to be more of the same when Aston Villa come to town this weekend. Ok so we’re just four Premier League games into the new campaign but the Foxes have made their intentions extremely clear and with wins over Sunderland and West Ham as well as draws against Spurs and Bournemouth, we fancy them to steal the spoils at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
Leicester looked destined to suffer their first defeat of there season prior to the international break, Premier League new boys Bournemouth taking the lead thanks to a Callum Wilson strike, however Jamie Vardy scored from the spot in the 86th minute and the Foxes’ unbeaten start to the season was maintained.
Will this excellent form carry them to a win on Sunday afternoon? We believe that it will, however it won’t be a walkover by any means. Villa opened their campaign with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth, however they followed this with back-to-back defeats to Manchester United and Crystal Palace and were held to a 2-2 draw by struggling Sunderland in their last outing.
All of this points to a win for the hosts on Sunday afternoon, however we do expect goals for both sides. Leicester have failed to keep a clean sheet this season, while Aston Villa have conceded seven goals in their last three games, including three against Notts County in the Capital One Cup and we should be seeing the net bulge at both ends at the King Power Stadium.
