Match Preview – Leicester City FC vs Aston Villa FC

Leicester City host Aston Villa in a repeat of the 2000 Semi Final, this time at King Power Stadium in the First Leg of the EFL Cup Semi Final 2019/20.

Leicester City FC

The Foxes are in 2nd place in the Premier League. They have 45 points from 21 games so far this season. They have recorded 14 wins, two draws, and five defeats with Brendan Rodgers in charge. Leicester are enduring an a strong run after their back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Liverpool, beating West Ham United and Newcastle away from home whilst progressing in the FA Cup against Wigan Athletic.

Leicester last won the League Cup in 2000. Former Villa boss Martin O’Neill beat the Villains in the Semi Final across two legs before beating Tranmere Rovers 2-1 in the Final.

Aston Villa FC

The Villains are in 17th place in the Premier League. They have 21 points from 21 games so far this season. United have recorded six wins, three draws, and 12 defeats with Dean Smith in charge. They are enduring a fairly poor run of form, with three wins, one draw and six defeats in the last 10 matches in all competitions alongside a lengthy injury-list. However, they have recently acquired Foxes title-winning member Danny Drinkwater to bolster midfield options and look to be very active in this transfer window.

Villa have managed to net 16 goals in the first four rounds of this year’s League Cup, four more than their run to Wembley in 2009/10 where they lost to Manchester United 2-1 in the Final.

Key Players

Leicester City FC – Jamie Vardy – 1/2* Anytime Scorer

English forward Jamie Vardy has 17 Premier League goals this season. Vardy has scored been in sensational form and better form than the title winning season. Despite coming back from a minor injury, the Foxes striker should be able to make an impact.

Aston Villa FC – Jack Grealish – 7/2* Anytime Scorer

English midfielder Jack Grealish has six Premier League goals this season. Apart from Kevin De Bruyne, Grealish is the joint-second highest goal-scoring midfielder since season alongside Leicester City and potential Euro 2020 spot rival James Maddison.
