What is the team news?

Leicester are saved! Wilfred Ndidi returns to Premier League action after starting in the FA Cup win over Birmingham City.

The Foxes are also set to welcome Jamie Vardy back after a spell on the sidelines, but Ben Chilwell faces a late fitness test to see if he has recovered from a knock in midweek.

Daniel Amartey is the only certainty to miss the clash.

Meanwhile, Villa are still missing John McGinn – but the Scot is closing in on his return after getting involved in training last week.

Tom Heaton and Wesley Moraes remain out for the rest of the season, while Jed Steer is expected to sit this one out with an Achilles injury.

Stat attack!

  • This will be their fourth meeting of the season after Aston Villa knocked Leicester out of the Carabao Cup over a two-legged semi-final
  • Leicester have won just three times in their last 12 Premier League matches – they had won eight in a row before that
  • Pepe Reina made his professional debut in the same year as Villa ace and regular starter Douglas Luiz was born (1999)

What are the odds?

Leicester are overwhelming favourites to beat Villa, with Ladbrokes offering a price of just 2/5, while the visitors are 13/2.

Meanwhile, Jamie Vardy is tipped to make a goal scoring return, with odds of 12/1 for the Foxes star to bag a hat-trick.

Yet, Villa’s own striker – Mbwana Ally Samatta – is also in fine form after netting in the Carabao Cup last weekend, and is 17/2 to score first this time around.
