Leicester City go up against Aston Villa in the Premier League 2022-23 at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Saturday, September 10, 2022. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time). 

Leicester City are yet to win a match in the Premier League this season and are currently at the bottom of the points table with one point in six matches. The Foxes took an early lead against Brighton in the last match, however, the Seagulls came back to seal a 5-2 defeat for Leicester. Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand are set to remain on the sidelines due to injury concerns.

Aston Villa ended a run of three back-to-back defeats in the league with a morale-boosting 1-1 draw against Manchester City last time out. The visitors are currently one spot above the relegation zone on goal difference. Villa right-back Matty Cash is doubtful for the game at the King Power Stadium due to a niggle he sustained in the City game while centre-back Diego Carlos is ruled out for the entire season. New signing Leander Dendoncker might feature on the bench for this match.

Leicester City top picks and players to watch vs Aston Villa Premier League 2022-23 

Patson Daka: The 21-year-old striker was in fine form against Brighton in the last Premier League match, scoring once and assisting a goal. Daka showed glimpses of his ability to run in behind the defence and finish with authority in the last match. He also made eight goal contributions in the 2021-22 Premier League season. 

Kelechi Iheanacho: The former Manchester City striker was the other goalscorer for Leicester in their defeat in the last Premier League match. Iheanacho formed a good partnership with Daka and the pair is expected to start together once again. The Nigerian forward is two goals short of reaching the 50-goal mark for Leicester City in all competitions.

Aston Villa top picks and players to watch vs Leicester City Premier League 2022-23

Ollie Watkins: He is the preferred striker for Aston Villa and he kicked off his goal-scoring tally in the Premier League 2022-23 season after netting against Crystal Palace on matchday three. Watkins has also registered two assists this season. The English striker’s pace and aerial ability will be useful against a makeshift Leicester central defence.

Leon Bailey: The 25-year-old Jamaican player was impressive in Aston Villa’s draw with Manchester City as he scored the equalizer. Bailey notched up two goals and an assist in pre-season and has caused trouble to defenders this season with his 1v1 dribbling ability.

Leicester City vs Aston Villa Premier League 2022-23 prediction

Leicester City and Aston Villa have both had a very underwhelming start to the Premier League campaign. The Foxes have failed to win a match so far this season but have a good record against Villa. The hosts will be expected to challenge for their first victory of the season in this match.

Aston Villa have had the better of Leicester City in recent times. The Villans looked rejuvenated in the draw against Manchester City as they are tipped to trouble the Leicester defence at the King Power Stadium.
