Aston Villa vs Leicester 05.12.2021
Having won his first two games in charge, Steven Gerrard tasted his first 2-1 defeat to Man City. However, Gerrard and his squad will be in the hunt for all three points when they host Leicester on Saturday.
That said, Leicester has poorly started the season compared to last season which earned them the European position. And as we approach the festive season, League fixtures will come in thick and fast, this means teams with ambitions need to avoid slip-ups during this period. With this at the back of their mind, Leicester will keep things tight to get something from this match.
As a result, we fancy the match to feature less than 3 match goals.
Main tip: Under 2.5 Goals (go to tip details)
