Team News

Aston Villa
  • Leon Bailey suffered a recurrence of a thigh injury from earlier in the season and he now faces several weeks out.
  • Steven Gerrard believes Matt Targett will recover from a knock in time for the welcome of Leicester. Ashley Young is on standby.
  • Jacob Ramsey is being monitored after picking up a few niggles over the last few weeks and may only make the bench here.
  • Bertrand Traore and Trezeguet will miss out once again for the home side but Danny Ings has an outside chance of returning.
  • James Maddison has three WhoScored Man of the Match awards in a row and six goal involvements in that time. Brendan Rodgers has confirmed he should be available despite a complaint with his glute.
  • Boubakary Soumare came off at half-time in the 2-2 draw with Southampton so may be replaced in midfield at Villa Park. Youri Tielemans is back in training but may not make this one. The same is true of James Justin.
  • Ayoze Perez, Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho are pushing for recalls and Brendan Rodgers may even revert to a back three with Daniel Amartey coming back into the side.


  • Steven Gerrard's winning start as Aston Villa manager came to an end on Wednesday as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to Manchester City. Villa won the second half 1-0 and Gerrard was pleased with the response of his players.
  • Leicester had to twice come from behind to salvage a point against Southampton in midweek. They haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 13 matches in the Premier League and look no closer to sorting out their leaky defence.
  • Gerrard's Liverpool career came to an end under Brendan Rodgers and both will be desperate to get one over on each other here. Leicester have already drawn three Premier League matches 2-2 this season and another one could well play out here.
