Tip Aston Villa - Leicester
Leicester City put in another impressive performance when beating Watford on Wednesday evening. They go into the weekend in second place and now travel to Aston Villa who are 15th in the table. Leicester beat managerless Watford 2-0 to make it seven league wins in a row. Six of those matches saw them score exactly twice, the other was the stunning 9-0 win at Southampton. Jamie Vardy is again in top form and his goal on Wednesday made it 14 for the season. City's away form is impressive with three wins in a row and 13 goals scored. Only Manchester United and Liverpool have beaten them on their league travels this season.
Aston Villa lost to Chelsea on Wednesday evening and won't have liked the fact Southampton won again. They are now only a point above the bottom three with 15 points from their 15 league games. 24 league goals have been conceded by Villa this season and only the bottom four have had more scored against them. The last five league games have only produced one victory, that was a 2-0 home win over Newcastle United. That was a rare clean sheet for Villa, only their third since returning to the Premier League this season. Two of their last three home league games have been won but Brighton and Newcastle are poor on their travels and both have also been beaten by Leicester in recent weeks. Go for an away win in this match.
