At a Glance

Aston Villa continue their Premier League campaign on Sunday, when they take on high-flying Leicester City at Villa Park.

Dean Smith’s side will be looking to get back on track following a 2-1 defeat against Chelsea on Wednesday. Villa had previously gone two games unbeaten in the league, so will be hoping for a reaction on Sunday. Three of Villa’s four league wins this season have come in front of the home faithful, so they will be aiming to use what should be an incredible atmosphere to their advantage once more.

Sunday’s visitors have won seven league games in succession, and currently occupy 2nd place in the league behind Liverpool.

Team News

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday, Dean Smith confirmed Anwar El Ghazi is likely to be fit in time for Sunday. El Ghazi withdrew during the first half of last weekend’s game against Manchester United, but looks to have recovered in time.

Elsewhere, Frederic Guilbert is available for selection having missed Wednesday’s trip to Chelsea through suspension.

Jed Steer and Keinan Davis remain out, although Davis is 1-2 weeks away from full fitness according to Smith.
