Desperate to put their King Power nightmare earlier in the month behind them, Leicester will mark their return from the international break when they host a high-flying Aston Villa on Sunday night.

While the Foxes might have managed to make a real statement as they secured that famous 5-2 win at the Etihad when finishing September, Brendan Rodgers’ men could only enter the October break on the wrong end of a 3-0 drumming at the hands of West Ham.

On the flip side, putting in what will be remembered as one of the most shocking performances in Premier League history, Aston Villa managed to pick up a stunning 7-2 romp against defending champions Liverpool in the Midlands and have entered the New Year in some style.

However, while Sunday’s guests might be flying high in the top-four, they could still hold some unpleasant memories over their last trip to the King Power.

Hit with a 4-0 drumming when they faced off against Leicester back in March, you might be interested to know that a similar home victory can be found priced at 5/6 with Betfair.

Rodgers demanding a response

While Leicester might have opened the 2020/2021 in what many were billing as shock fashion, the Foxes rather drastically failed to keep up the same momentum that saw them breeze past Manchester City at the Etihad.

Watching West Ham come to the King Power and leave with a deserved 3-0 win to show, Head Coach Brendan Rodgers was left far from pleased by his side’s display and will have a real headache over his side’s continued issues at the back.

While the former Liverpool boss might have seen attacking talisman Jamie Vardy already open his account for the New Year, Sunday’s hosts have failed to record a single clean sheet since opening proceedings with a 3-0 win against West Brom.

Along with watching Arsenal knock them out of the EFL Cup on home soil last month, Leicester have now conceded at least a pair of strikes in each of their last four appearances across all competitions.

You might be interested to know, the Foxes can be found priced at 13/8 with Paddy Power to once again ship over 1.5 goals as they make their return from the international break this weekend.

Villa shock the world

Traveling to the King Power this weekend, there is no doubt that Aston Villa will simply be desperate to carry on from where they left off earlier in the month.

Shocking the footballing world in the Midlands, Dean Smith’s men managed to put seven past defending champions Liverpool and have only continued to embark on what has been a stunning start to the New Year.

Making their return from the international break sat second in the standings, Sunday’s guests have collected nine points from their opening three Premier League appearances and are one of just two sides along with Everton who can boast a 100% start.

Looking to cause what would be another upset this weekend, Smith will be hoping for Jack Grealish to spearhead what has been a free-scoring Villa outfit.

While summer arrival Ollie Watkins might have bagged a stunning hat-trick against the Reds last time out, the Villa skipper bagged himself as a brace and is in the form of his career.

Bagging three goals in back-to-back top-flight outings, Grealish can be found priced at 3/1 with Unibet to extend on that tally on Sunday.
