Leicester City continue their amazing season, with the Foxes making a short trip to Villa Park after winning their past eight matches in all competitions.

Indeed, it’s possible that Brendan Rodgers’ side are going to present the biggest challenge to Liverpool winning the title, especially as the Midlands side don’t have the distraction of European competition.

However, Leicester have a tricky encounter on Sunday against a team who have been producing some bright performances over the past few weeks and we’re going to side with Aston Villa on the Asian Handicap market for this one.

Dean Smith’s side acquitted themselves well when losing 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, with the Villans having previously enjoyed a 2-2 draw at Manchester United after beating Newcastle at home.

Villa have been pretty decent in front of their own supporters and there are reasons to explain their two defeats. The opening day reverse against Bournemouth came from early individual mistakes, while a 2-1 loss against Liverpool had previously seen them lead 1-0 before a late flourish from the champions-elect.

As for the Foxes, they are not a team to oppose lightly although this winning run has eventually got to come to an end and they have only won four of their seven away matches, with Rodgers’ team taking a while to eventually find the breakthrough against Watford.

Leicester have been defensively excellent in recent weeks, although they might be tested by a vibrant home side for whom Jack Grealish is in excellent form, while John McGinn and Trezeguet are also capable of causing problems.

We could see this clash ending in a draw and we’ll take Villa with a one goal advantage on the basis that we will get money back should the game end slightly in favour of the visitors.
