Tip Aston Villa - Leeds
Aston Villa put their winning record on the line when they host Leeds United in the Premier League on Friday night. Villa avoided relegation by the skin of their teeth last season but have loftier aspirations than staying up this time around. With four wins from four games, they are the only Premier League side to boast a perfect start going into the weekend. It leaves them second in the table, a point behind Everton, who have played a game more. While Leeds cannot claim to have been perfect, they have had a better start to the season than their fellow promoted clubs. Marcelo Bielsa's team failed to win their last two matches but still have seven points from five games, a tally that leaves them tenth in the table. Leeds have impressed with their confident brand of attacking football. It is more daring than one would expect from a side that had spent the last 16 years in the second tier. They have played twice away from home in the Premier League this season, losing the first 4-3 to Liverpool before winning 1-0 at Sheffield United. They ended last season in good away form, winning five of their last six away games. They often rally late when they are on their travels, scoring in the second half in each of their last 5 matches away from home. Bielsa's translator must give good team talks.
Seven of the last eight matches between Villa and Leeds have featured fewer than three goals. The last three Villa Park editions of this fixture featured wins for both sides as well as a draw. Villa won their last four home matches in the Premier League, the most recent of which was a jaw-dropping 7-2 victory over reigning champions Liverpool. Jack Grealish has been the standout player of this team with three goals and three assists in the four games. We see Villa's good form continuing with another win here.
