Aston Villa were disappointing last weekend suffering a FA Cup exit at home to League Two outfit Stevenage. Villa had been showing good form in the top flight winning three, drawing one and losing just one of their last five.

They have won three of their last six Premier League fixtures in front of their own fans which includes victories over Man United and Brentford. Danny Ings has three in four at this ground in the league while Ollie Watkins and Leon Bailey both have two in four.

Leeds needed a late Sonny Perkins goal to rescue a draw against Cardiff in the FA Cup last weekend. It was a third consecutive game in all competitions to finish all-square and makes it six without a victory in competitive fixtures for the Yorkshire side.

On the road, United have picked up just five points this season although three of these came at Anfield and one at Newcastle. Rodrigo has three in his last three on the road in the top-flight while Crysencio Summerville has two in three.

Aston Villa vs Leeds match stats

Both teams to score would have paid in two of the last three Aston Villa home matches and in three of the last four at all grounds for Leeds. These teams have attacking talents but also holes at the back. Backing both sides to score and over 2.5 goals looks the play in what should be an entertaining Friday night fixture.

Rodrigo has been one of the bright sparks for the visitors this campaign having lead the line well in the absence of Patrick Bamford. The Spaniard has had 3+ shots in his last two games and looks capable of doing the same here given the defensive issues Stevenage showed last weekend. Sky Bet have enhanced him to 7/2 to have 2+ shots here which looks generous.
