Against Walsall last Saturday, Leicester City scored one goal and that was enough to secure the victory. Leicester City had 75 percent of the possession and seven shots on target.

Leicester City is dealing with a ton of injury issues and they will be without James Justin, Jonny Evans, Ryan Bertrand, and Boubakary Soumare because of injuries. Wilfried Ndidi is also expected to be away from the team because of personal reasons. Jamie Vardy could return from a glute concern.
Shane’s Free Pick
Leicester City’s defense finally had some success in the last game, but this team is a whole lot different than Walsall. Aston Villa is going to score two or three goals here, and with all the Leicester City injuries, they just don’t have enough offense to keep this game close. Back Aston Villa on the money line.
