- Leeds Utd’s good start to the campaign has been underpinned by strong performances at home with seven of a possible nine points accrued at Elland Road ahead of the visit of Aston Villa.
- The versatile Stuart Dallas will not feature against Steven Gerrard’s side due to injury and midfielder Adam Forshaw is also set to miss out although striker Patrick Bamford is likely to start.
- A much-needed victory over Southampton prior to the international break eased the pressure on Steven Gerrard, but after winning at Elland Road last season, Gerrard and Aston Villa could desperately do with the same outcome this time out.
- Injury problems at full-back is proving a particular headache coming into this one with both Matty Cash and Lucas Digne absent, although in attack Gerrard boasts a plethora of options at his disposal.

Leeds Utd are well aware of the need to make their home a fortress if they are to make progress this season in the Premier League and they have done just that under Jesse Marsch. Although there is still plenty of work to do defensively as shown at Brentford when they collapsed to a 5-2 defeat, the attacking verve of Leeds have seen them hugely impress on their own ground. Against an injury-plagued, defensively fragile Aston Villa, it’s hard not to see the hosts finding the net at least once here. Villa have lost all three of their league games away from home so far in 2022-23, conceding at least twice on each occasion and backing Leeds Utd to triumph against them has to be favoured, although only via the safety of the draw no bet market.
TIP: LEEDS UTD DRAW NO BET
