After four years and 45 days, Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City parted ways after a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday made it six defeats in their last seven matches across all competitions (D1). Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell have a huge job on their hands as they aim to help them get out of the relegation places while a replacement is found. 

The Foxes have lost five of their last seven Premier League home games (W1 D1), which is more than they had in their previous 19 at the King Power Stadium (W10 D5 L4), but a win here would see them complete just their third Premier League double over Aston Villa, having previously done so in 1996-97 and 2019-20.

Villa, on the other hand, have gone from strength to strength under Unai Emery, with only Arsenal (12) and Manchester City (10) having won more Premier League games than the Villains (9) since the Spaniard took charge. Those nine wins in 15 games are as many as they managed in their previous 34 matches in the league beforehand.

Unai has lost his last three Premier League games against Leicester, however, and its looking to avoid losing four consecutive Premier League matches against a single opponent for the first time in his career.

Leicester vs Aston Villa: Match Stats

Leicester have dropped a league-high 22 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season, including a 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace having opened the scoring at the weekend. Only in their last relegation campaign of 2003-04, have the Foxes dropped more in a single season in the competition (28).

Kelechi Iheanacho has been directly involved in more goals against Aston Villa in all competitions than he has against any other side in English football. The Nigerian has seven goals and four assist in just 10 appearances against the Villians, while Ollie Watkins has found the back of the net in seven of his last nine appearances across all competitions for Unai Emery’s side.
