Two of the teams that have made the poorest starts to the new Premier League season go head-to-head on Saturday as Leicester play host to Aston Villa. The Foxes are yet to secure their first victory of the season but might fancy their chances at home against an Aston Villa side that have lost four of their opening six matches.
Both sides have endured underwhelming starts to the new Premier League season. Villa’s hard-fought point against Manchester City last weekend may have earned Steven Gerrard a bit more breathing room but his former manager Brendan Rodgers is enduring a tough time with the Foxes.
A 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Brighton last weekend consigned Leicester to a fifth consecutive league defeat, their longest losing run in the Premier League since the final days of Claudio Ranieri.
To make things worse, the two fullbacks Ricardo Pereira, and Ryan Bertrand aren’t expected to recover from long-term Achilles and knee injuries in the near future. Also, Leicester’s only outfield signing of the summer, defender Wout Faes, was unable to feature at the Amex last weekend because the club didn’t have the visa in time.
Looking at Aston Villa, Leander Dendoncker failed to make his debut last weekend after arriving from Wolves at the end of the window while he nursed a minor illness. Diego Carlos has only just begun what is expected to be a lengthy absence after undergoing surgery on his Achilles in August.
For all the doom and gloom hanging over King Power Stadium, Villa haven’t exactly breezed through the opening half-dozen fixtures. Only newly promoted Bournemouth have taken fewer shots than the struggling pair so far this season.
A goalless stalemate could be on the cards but Leicester have kept just one clean sheet in their last 29 Premier League matches. Unfortunately for each of these two teams, In a meeting between two underwhelming outfits, neither may earn the victory they both desperately crave.
