It is the second part of premier league matchday 16 as we still have quite a number of exciting fixtures left to play. The title race and top 4 race keeps getting more exciting each week, Man City extending the gap at the top with their loss against Man United and Chelsea losing to an out-of-form Everton side.

Aston Villa are in a difficult situation at the moment, they are currently sitting 15th on the table and just above the relegation zone on goal difference. They face a very difficult game at home against the second-best performers this season behind Liverpool and will be hoping to get a positive result out of the game.

They will be expected to set up in a 4-3-3 formation. They are a team that likes to play football will be aiming for a positive game against Leicester. However, they will also be conscious of Leicester City’s counter-attacking qualities and will try to stay very compact at the back. Their gameplan will most likely be to find opportunities in the game with their attacking play and find ways to hurt Leicester City.
