    TEAM NEWS – LEICESTER

    Summer signing Wesley Fofana is handed his first start in a side that has had three changes since losing to West Ham.

    The Foxes have several players returning from injury; Jonny Evans and Dennis Praet are both fit to start, while James Maddison starts on the bench.

    Fofana replaces an injured Caglar Soyuncu, while Praet replaces Amartey.

    Jamie Vardy’s calf injury keeps him out of the squad this evening, he picked up a niggle during training this week.

    His absence sees Kelechi Iheanacho leading the line – but good news for Leicester fans, he loves to score against Villa.

    SMITH SPEAKS

    Speaking ahead of the game, Aston Villa boss Dean Smith spoke of wanting to prove that his side's performance against Liverpool wasn't just a one-off.

    He said:“There's a lot of quality in the team and I think that performance against Liverpool proved that.

    “But if we want to be talked about in glowing terms, then you have to make sure you maintain that.”

    GOOD EVENING

    Leicester’s form this season has summed up just how unpredictable the Premier League is.

    The Foxes came flying out the blocks, winning their opening three fixtures, including a seven-goal thriller against Manchester City, but went into the international break having lost 3-0 to West Ham.

    Despite Aston Villa surviving by the skin of their teeth last season, they’ve had an extraordinary start winning three from three.

    Their stand-out performance was, of course, their 7-2 win over defending champions Liverpool and Dean Smith will be looking for similar form from his men this evening.

    The hat-trick hero against Liverpool was Ollie Watkins who looks to have filled the void at centre-forward and Jack Grealish can count on other creative players in the ranks in the form of Ross Barkley and Jon McGinn.

    But they will face a tough opposition in Leicester, who have bagged twelve goals in four games, who have an added boost in that James Maddison is fit enough to feature after recovering from a calf strain.

    However, Brendan Rodgers does have a growing injury list that includes Ricardo Pereira, Dennis Praet and Wilfred Ndidi.

    Stick with us this evening as we bring you all the action.
