This should be a really good game. Could be anything but going for 2-2 and right now I'd be happy with that.

I'm treating my Uncle Jimmy (don't laugh) to Matchday Hospitality  for this one, coming over from Iceland so hoping we can get something from this game.

The last time he was over was a 0-0 draw against Sunderland, I'm hoping for goals! He's still a bit gutted Birkir  is no longer with us

Prediction 1-1
Wesley and Vardy

I think this might be the hardest game this season. I want us to win. But I donít see how. Liverpool aside Leicester have been the most consistent, efficient and effective side in the league this season. Just solid everywhere in the side. Vardy is the perfect lone striker and he has great help in midfield and out wide. This wonít be easy at all.

Are they a particularly dirty side this season? Just wondering whether they are likely to be kicking lumps out of Grealish.

I think we may be a bit flat after the defeat on Weds and a few of the players a bit tired. But if we get a bit of luck and an early goal, you never know. Think another loss may be on the cards though, sadly. Wouldnít be too upset losing by a low margin.

Iím going 2-1 to Leicester.

We are more resilient at home and with a big crowd behind them the team will respond. It will be interesting to see any changes Smith may make as I thought a couple of players looked very tired against Chelsea going for glass half full 2-2.

I think we'll get turned over good and proper.  We are just way too sloppy at the back and they have players that only need 1 chance. And we'll present them with chances.

 0-3 and a lot of panic posts on here.

Anything from this is a bonus. A point would be most welcome.

Think we might get a pumping if our performance is similar to Wednesday s.

If we play like we did against Wolves and Chelsea then another defeat is on the cards. We simply canít afford to have so many players playing below par, and they need raise their game to get a result. Unfortunately I think theyíll dominate midfield and expose us at the back, so Iíd happily take a point now.

Leicester have some high quality players  and are bang in form at the moment, I think we will lose this one with Vardy scoring  couple. Our defence looks average at best at the moment.

Villa win, based on nothing but blind loyalty. I'm sure we'll give them a game, create a few chances, have a few balls-ups at the back, etc. We're due a win, so why not.

Leicester beat us at home in my first ever Villa game, so I always have a little extra hope that we will beat them. After that I generally wish them well.
