Leicester vs Aston Villa

Sunday evening will see a Midlands-based derby play out between Leicester and Aston Villa.

Both sides head into the tie in solid form, which should make for an enthralling clash.

Villa have played one less league game than the Foxes this term, but they have picked up maximum points anyway, with their last outing of course seeing them trash Liverpool 7-2.

As for Leicester, they would fall to defeat in their last league tie. But prior to that they had won three on the bounce, including a 5-2 victory over Man City.

Leicester fitness update

Ahead of the clash at the King Power, Brendan Rodgers has provided a fitness update on a number of key players.

And for the most part, it isn’t great news for the Foxes.

First up, Rodgers confirmed that Caglar Soyuncu could be out for a number of weeks:

“We think that Çağs will most definitely be out with an abductor strain, so we’re waiting on the scan on that.

“We think that he is definitely out for a number of weeks, but until we get the final scans, that will determine the length of time.”

The Leicester boss also cast some doubt over the potential involvement of Jamie Vardy and Jonny Evans on Sunday, before confirming that Dennis Praet is also a doubt:

“Jonny has come back with abdominal pain, so again, we’ll review that. We’re hopeful that Jonny will be okay and that would obviously be a great bonus for the team.

“Vards has an issue around his calf, so we’re awaiting a scan on that.

“Dennis Praet, obviously, has gone away and done some work with Belgium, so we’ll see how he is, but he’ll be a doubt.”

On a slightly more positive note, Rodgers stated that James Maddison will be able to play some part against Villa:

“He’s been out with the rehab team and joined in with training so he will be able to play some part at the weekend, which is great news for us.”
