THE TEAM NEWS

ASTON VILLA

  • Villa come off a 2-1 loss at Chelsea in midweek but they will be delighted to return home where they have lost just one of their last six.
  • Boss Dean Smith welcomes back Guilbert after suspension and the French right-back should return to the starting eleven for Elmohamady.
  • Douglas Luiz was held on the bench in midweek but could return to the midfield while it would be no surprise to see Engels come back in.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett; Hourihane, McGinn, Douglas Luiz; Trezeguet, Wesley, Grealish

Unavailable: Steer (Injured), Davis (Injured)

Doubtful: El Ghazi (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester won their seventh consecutive Premier League match in midweek as they eventually broke down a stubborn Watford side to win 2-0.
  • They kept another clean sheet to maintain their record as having the best defence in the Premier League despite Chilwell missing out.
  • The left-back is expected to return here so Fuchs will drop out of the team and otherwise they could very well go unchanged once again.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Unavailable: James (Injured)

Doubtful: Gray (Illness), Chilwell (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Aston Villa have a strong home record so they will be delighted to return to Villa Park even against a flying Leicester City side. Brendan Rodgers' side are in sensational form right now and they should have enough firepower to edge what could be a high-scoring and entertaining game here.
