Aston Villa welcome Leicester City to Villa Park for this Sunday 2.00pm kick-off. This is a sign of things to come for the visitors as they take part in what will be their third outing in seven days. The games come thick and fast at this time of year and being able to cope with that is often the difference between challenging and falling off the pace.

The Sleeping Giant
Aston Villa battled their way through the Championship to the top division last season and have been seen holding their own against the country’s elite. Villa have already won vital points at this venue and have proven a tough nut to crack in front of their own teams. Three defeats on the bounce in November dragged them down through the ranks but it would rate as a bit of a shock if they were to be relegated back to the second tier come the end of the fixture list.
Leicester fans have had plenty to shout about since Brendan Rodgers left Parkhead for the King Power Stadium and although it’s unlikely they will win the Premier League we know it is never safe to write them off. Leicester were a sleeping giant going into this season and appear to be up on their feet and ready for the fight that awaits. They look value to win this match and continue their form.
