Super Sunday comes from Villa Park where Aston Villa will be looking for their second win in a row and Leicester City will be looking for their first win in over two months. Aston Villa moved away from the relegation zone midweek with a win at Crystal Palace. Villa now get an opportunity to move to the top half of the table with a win at home against Leicester City. The return of Christian Benteke has been a huge bonus to Villa and he will look to build on his game winning goal against Palace on Tuesday. Paul Lambert will look to Benteke, Wiemann and Agbonlahor to get their first win at home since August. After a terrific start to the season Villa lost six games in a row but are now unbeaten in their last four. Huge chance here for Aston Villa to get to midtable.
While Villa are currently on an unbeaten streak Leicester havent won in nine games and have lost seven of those nine games. If Leicester lose tomorrow there is a good chance that Nigel Pearson's job will be under severe pressure. Ulloa has been struggling of late, just cant find a goal and with those struggles Leicester have struggled. Since beating Manchester United the team has struggled in every aspect. Realistically Leicester face a tough three game fixture list playing Manchester City, tottenham and West ham. This game represents their one realistic chance at a win before Christmas.
Tough one here, Leicester are desperate for a win but they are playing an Aston Villa team that have their talisman back in Benteke and who have been playing relatively well of late. I am going to take the home team to get a win here as I think they just have the better balances side and in Benteke they have a genuine game winner.
