LEI vs AVL Dream11: Aston Villa kick start their quest for Premier League survival with a trip to Midlands as they take on Leicester City at King Power Stadium on Monday night (IST). Regardless of the result of this game, Villa are destined to end this round in the relegation zone, but they will have one extra game on rivals due to the involvement in the Carabao Cup. Leicester City will also look to arrest a two-game skid here. The Foxes have failed to win any of their last four Premier League games, a run that has allowed Chelsea to close the gap on them to just two points.

Leicester City vs Aston Villa Team News:
Leicester City Team News:
Leicester City will hope to have their leading striker Jamie Vardy back for this game. The former Premier League golden boot winner missed the last match against Norwich City due to a calf problem.
Brendan Rodgers is also sweating over the fitness of left-back Ben Chilwell. He is nursing a hamstring starting and will be a game-time call.
While the likes of Daniel Amartey (ankle injury) and Nempalys Mendy (knee injury) remain on the sidelined with long-term injury absentees.
How Leicester City may line-up?
If Vardy fails to recover before the match, Kelechi Iheanacho will be leading the lines for the hosts.
The left side of the backline, which will have Ricardo Pereira at left-back and Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu at the center could also see a change if Chilwell is not fit. In that case, Christian Fuchs will deputize on the left side.
Wilfried Ndidi is fit and will start in the middle of the park, with the likes of James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes all starting.
Leicester City key players:
Jamie Vardy: If he starts, he should be on your team. He has scored 17 goals in the league this season.
James Maddison: The finesse and the close control he has on the ball makes him a unique player. At the moment, he is Villa's most prized asset.
Ayoze Perez: Second-best offensive player for Leicester City this season with 7 goals.
Harvey Barnes leads the team with seven assists.
Aston Villa team news:
The Villains will miss the services of midfielder John McGinn, who suffered fractured ankle against Chelsea on 14 March but is expected to make a return next week.
Striker Wesley is out for the season, who Villa replaced with Mbwana Samatta, while Jed Steer and Tom Heaton are also out of this game due to their respective injuries.
Aston Villa likely changes!
Mbwana Sammatta will lead Villa in the absence of Wesley.
Jack Grealish will start in a free role, while Trezeguet and El Ghazi should be on either wing.
Aston Villa key players:
Jack Grealish: Villa's superstar. He has seven goals, and six assists (both team-high) this season.
Anwar El Ghazi: He is in good form as well. He has four goals and as many assists this season.
