Steven Gerrard will look for his third win from four games as Aston Villa’s manager when they face Leicester City today.
The Foxes have overachieved in the last few seasons with Brendan Rodgers as their manager.
However, the Northern Irishman is struggling to get his team to meet expectations in this campaign.
Ambitious Villa has made Gerard their latest manager. This game brings former Celtic and Rangers managers head-to-head against each.
The former Liverpool captain suffered his first defeat as Villa’s manager in their last match against Manchester City.
We expected the 2-1 loss, considering City’s form, yet Villa gave an excellent account of themselves in the game.
If they perform in a similarly good and organised fashion, they should get all the points from this fixture.
Leicester drew their last league match 2-2 at Southampton, and that result means they are unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions.
That form looks great on paper, but The Saints, Watford and Legia Warsaw aren’t as good as Villa and the home side will feel confident today.
Both clubs will hope their key men, Ollie Watkins (Villa) and Jamie Vardy (Leicester) would be on their best form in the game.
