Team news, stats and prediction ahead of Aston Villa vs Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

Team news

Aston Villa's Anwar El Ghazi could return from a knee injury to face Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday. The winger missed Wednesday's defeat at Chelsea but will return to training on Saturday.

Keinan Davis' hamstring injury is likely to rule him out for another week, while Jed Steer's Achilles injury will also keep him sidelined for up to four months. James Chester is training but is not yet match fit.

Leicester winger Demarai Gray comes back into contention for the trip to Villa Park after returning to training this week after missing the last two matches with a bout of flu.

Boss Brendan Rodgers will know more on Ben Chilwell following training on Saturday, but is hopeful the defender will be available after sitting out the midweek home win over Watford with a hip injury.

Rodgers' only confirmed absentee is Matty James, who is back in training following a long-term Achilles problem but is not yet ready for a return to first-team action.

A look at some of the key stats surrounding this weekend's Premier League action, including the Manchester derby and Arsenal’s trip to West Ham

Opta stats

  • Aston Villa have lost just one of their last eight home league games against Leicester (W3 D4), going down 0-2 in December 2001.
  • This is the first meeting between Aston Villa and Leicester since January 2016, and a 1-1 draw at Villa Park in the Premier League. Leicester are unbeaten in three league games against the Villans (W2 D1), having lost each of the three before that.
  • Aston Villa have won two of their last three home Premier League games (L1), more than they had in their previous 11 in the competition (W1 D3 L7). They're looking for back-to-back top-flight wins at Villa Park for the first time since May 2015.
  • Leicester have won their last three away league games by an aggregate score of 13-0. Only between October-December of their 2015-16 title-winning season have they won four consecutive away games in the Premier League.

Live Renault Super Sunday

  • Aston Villa haven't won any of their last 12 Premier League matches played on Sundays (D3 L9), since beating Leicester 2-1 on 7th December 2014.
  • Leicester have won their last seven Premier League matches - a win against Aston Villa will achieve their longest ever winning run in the top-flight. The Foxes have only won eight consecutive league games once previously, winning nine in a row between December 2013 and February 2014 in the Championship.
  • Aston Villa's Trézéguet has scored in each of his last three Premier League starts - the last player to score in four in a row for the club in the top-flight was Christian Benteke in April 2013.
  • Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored in his last seven Premier League appearances - the last player to score in eight in a row was Vardy himself, during his record 11-game run between August and November 2015.

You are always unsure at how these games are going to go. Leicester have been flying without necessarily playing to their absolute best. A few decisions have worked out for them, with Brendan Rodgers the beneficiary of luck when it has fallen his way. The Premier League table doesn't look attractive to Villa, but they play expansively and, with Leicester likely to open up the game, they could take something.

CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
