Leicester looked on course for all three points against Everton in midweek but conceded a late equalizer and the game finished 1-1. Aston Villa have not played since April 9th when they were hammered 4-0 by Tottenham.
It is all about trying to capture a first ever European trophy for the hosts who have little but pride to play for in the Premier League. The visitors have dropped four straight and have slumped to 15th but are well clear of the relegation zone.
At home, the Foxes are tough to beat winning each of their last three and going five unbeaten in the league. On the road, Villa have lost each of their last two and four of their last seven.
The injured Jamie Vardy (ten goals) is the leading Leicester goalscorer while James Maddison has eight for the campaign. Ollie Watkins has the most goals for Villa this season with eight while Jacob Ramsey has six.
Both teams to score has happened in the last five league games for the Foxes with three ending 2-1 and the other two 1-1. The visitors are struggling for goals having netted just two in their last four.
Leicester vs Aston Villa: Match Stats
Due to the FA Cup semi-final Villa have not been in action since April 9th so they might be a little out of match fitness. They have conceded the opener in each of their last four so back Leicester to score first.
Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall is one of the few Foxes players who seems to be a regular feature sometimes in the midfield two or is in midweek pushed forward behind the front players. He netted in the last home game and looks value to score at any time in this.
