The Premier League league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. Leicester City and Aston Villa are placed 3rd and 2nd respectively.

We should expect both teams to be fresh and ready for this match, as there is some time since both teams last played. Let's have a look at how the teams are doing!

L W L W W

Leicester City form and stats

Only two Premier League home games for Leicester City so far, yet both highs and lows with 1 win, 0 draws and 1 defeat.

The Leicester fans got no joy from their last match, a Premier League game also here at King Power Stadium: A 0-3 defeat against West Ham United (placed 10th). In the game before, an away victory match versus Manchester City with a 5-2 scoreline.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Leicester City at home in the league. 4 on target and 5 scored by the opposition; from 2 matches.

W L W W W

Aston Villa form and stats

A perfect away game record so far for the visitors in the Premier League, but they have only played once. Last season their away game stats were 2 wins, 5 draws and 12 defeats from 19 matches.

Aston won their last game, 7-2 versus Liverpool played at home. The game before that, in the Carabao Cup, was lost at home, a 0-1 defeat against Stoke City.

As mentioned above, Aston was the only team on the pitch versus Liverpool in their previous game, winning 7-2. This could be a tougher task. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martínez was absolutely vital in the Aston victory against Liverpool, making six saves. It's hard not to mention Ollie Watkins's lethal finishing against Liverpool. three goals were a big reason for the important victory.

Aston Villa have the goal stats of 3-0 (for/against) from 1 business trip in the league at this early stage of the season.

Head 2 Head

Numbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: five wins for Leicester City, two draws and three wins for Aston Villa. Over 2,5 goals: six times; under 2,5 goals: four games.
