Who will win today’s football match?

  • Steven Gerrard’s winning start as Aston Villa manager came to an end on Wednesday as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to Manchester City. Villa won the second half 1-0 and Gerrard was pleased with the response of his players.
  • Leicester had to twice come from behind to salvage a point against Southampton in midweek. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 13 matches in the Premier League and look no closer to sorting out their leaky defence.
  • Gerrard’s Liverpool career came to an end under Brendan Rodgers and both will be desperate to get one over on each other here. Leicester have already drawn three Premier League matches 2-2 this season and another one could well play out here.

Match Odds: 

Aston Villa: 22/15
Leicester City: 39/19
