Predicted Leicester City v Aston Villa line-ups

Leicester City

Match to be played on Saturday 10th January 2015 at 15:00. Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester.

Aston Villa will be looking to continue their promising start to the New Year when they take on Leicester City away from home in the Premier League today.

The Villans started 2015 with a goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Villa Park in the league, before getting the better of Blackpool 1-0 in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.

Paul Lambert’s side currently find themselves 12th in the Premier League standings with 22 points from 20 matches, just five points above the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, hosts Leicester continue to fight for survival in the English top flight and will head into today’s game rooted to the foot of the table with just 14 points.

Nigel Pearson’s side, though, have made a positive start to the New Year. Following a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League, the Foxes defeated Newcastle United 1-0 at the King Power Stadium in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.

Predicted line-ups:

Leicester City XI: Schwarzer; Simpson, Wasilewski, Morgan, Konchesky; Vardy, Hammond, James, Knockaert; Nugent, Ulloa

Aston Villa XI: Guzan; Hutton, Okore, Clark, Cissokho; Westwood, Sanchez, Cleverley; Weimann, Benteke, Agbonlahor
