Leicester v Aston Villa takes place on Tuesday at 7:45pm (UK time).
After picking up just one point from a possible 18 in his last six Premier League games, Brendan Rodgers was relieved of his duties as Leicester head coach on Sunday, after four years in charge at the King Power.
The Foxes now find themselves in 19th place and Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell face and up-hill task to help them out of the relegation places as they face a Villa side that have won four and drawn one of their last five Premier League games, including an impressive 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge in the late kick-off on Saturday.
Unai Emery has done a fantastic job in the Villa hot-seat, with only Arsenal (12) and Manchester City (10) having won more Premier League games than the Villains (9) since he took charge, moving the side into 9th and making European qualification a real possibility this term.

Leicester team news
James Justin, Youri Tielemans and Ryan Bertrand all remain long term absentees for the Foxes, while Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell have a choice to make up-front, with Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka all vying for a place in the starting XI.
Jonny Evans and Dennis Praet missed the defeat to Palace at the weekend, but should both return to the squad here, while Ricardo Pereira will be hoping to regain his place at full-back after Timothy Castagne started at RB in that game.
This will be the first time in over four years that the Foxes will play a Premier League game without Brendan Rodgers in charge and chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha released this statement after his departure:
“The achievements of the team under Brendan’s management speak for themselves – we’ve experienced some of our finest footballing moments under his guidance and will always be grateful to him and his staff for the heights they helped us to reach on the pitch.
“Off the pitch, Brendan embraced the culture of the Club and helped cultivate an outstanding developmental environment, particularly during the transition to Seagrave, and provided strong leadership during the unprecedented challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. His place in Leicester City history is assured.
“However, performances and results during the current season have been below our shared expectations. It had been our belief that continuity and stability would be key to correcting our course, particularly given our previous achievements under Brendan’s management. Regrettably, the desired improvement has not been forthcoming and, with 10 games of the season remaining, the Board is compelled to take alternative action to protect our Premier League status.
“The task ahead of us in our final 10 games is clear. We now need to come together – fans, players and staff – and show the poise, quality and fight to secure our position as a Premier League club.”
Aston Villa team news
Ollie Watkins has been in sensational form in recent weeks, scoring in seven of his last nine appearances in the league and will be hoping to continue his fine form that has seen him reach double figures for the third consecutive Premier League season.
Unai Emery will be without Matty Cash and Philippe Coutinho once again for the trip to the King Power and may stick with the side that beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.
