Odds shown are from William Hill and are subject to change

Leicester hosts Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon in a Midlands derby clash.
Leicester have made an impressive start to the Premier League campaign picking up eight points from their first four top-flight games this season. The Foxes are currently third in the table and a win against their Midlands rivals cannot be ruled out.
The Foxes drew 1-1 with newly-promoted Bournemouth last time out, with Jamie Vardy grabbing his second goal of the season. It was the Foxes second consecutive draw in the top-flight.
Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri was active on transfer deadline day, as he signed Swansea winger Nathan Dyer on a season-long loan deal.
Aston Villa have endured a mixed start to their Premier League campaign so far. The Villans have picked-up a win, a draw and suffered two defeats this season so far.
Last time out Tim Sherwood’s side played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Sunderland at Villa Park, but the Villa boss admitted afterwards that he was disappointed not to have picked-up maximum points.
Sherwood’s side are probably still attempting to gel as a unit, after so many new summer arrivals. The Villans added yet another new signing on deadline day in former-England international Joleon Lescott, who arrived for an initial fee of £1million from Midlands rivals West Brom, but the deal may eventually rise to £2million on appearances.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met 18 times in the Premier League, with Leicester claiming six victories, Villa winning four times and eight games finishing in a draw.
However, at the King Power Stadium, Villa have claimed just one win in nine visits in the Premier League, with Leicester claiming wins on four occasions and four games being drawn.
Leicester are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League games.
The recent record between these two teams is three wins each in the last six games in all competitions.
Villa have failed to win in the Premier League since their opening day 1-0 win at Bournemouth.

Team News

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has the luxury of a near fully-fit squad going into this clash, with the Foxes only injury absentee midfielder Matthew James. New signing Nathan Dyer may need to settle for a place on the bench in this clash.
Aston Villa have numerous injury problems heading into this clash. Midfielder Gary Gardner is definitely ruled out through injury.
The Villans have doubts of the fitness of Jores Okore, Jose Angel Crespo, Idrissa Gueye, Adam Traore, Jack Grealish and Gabby Agbonlahor. New signing Lescott is likely to start this game on the substitute’s bench.

Possible Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Huth, Schlupp, King, Drinkwater, Kante, Mahrez, Albrighton, Vardy

Possible Aston Villa line-up: Guzan, Hutton, Richards, Clark, Amavi, Sanchez, Gueye, Westwood, Bacuna, Sinclair, Gestede
