Leicester vs. Aston Villa – confirmed starting XIs

Here we go, the penultimate game of the Premier League weekend is here, with Leicester City hosting Aston Villa. The Foxes have been the surprise package of the season so far, with Riyad Mahrez’s four goals in four propelling the club towards the most unlikely of Champions League charges… Okay it’s far too early to say that, but they’ve been good!

Aston Villa meanwhile have been pretty inconsistent, which is to be expected given the vast array of summer signings and the exits of Fabian Delph and Christian Benteke. Tim Sherwood has the potential to work some magic – as he did late last season – but can he halt the Leicester juggernaut?

The Villans appear to have gone for pace up front this afternoon with Rudy Gestede dropped to the bench in favour of Gabby Agbonlahor, while Claudio Ranieri’s side will be looking to England international Jamie Vardy and Japanese ace Shinji Okazaki for inspiration.
