England - Premier League 2021/2022
Both team score
During the week, Aston Villa lost 1-2 at home to the reigning champions Manchester City. This is certainly not surprising. However, the defeat interrupted the mini winning streak of two games and the record of new coach Steven Gerrard. Since the Liverpool legend took over the club in mid-November, the Birmingham based club have defeated Brighton 2-0 and then Crystal Palace 2-1. A promising start that would only have increased the hype surrounding the new coach with a point win against City. Nevertheless, the 41-year-old still has a lot of work to do. Before he took office, there were downright defeats. Villa lost five times in a row in the league and conceded 13 goals. If Aston Villa managed to win this match it would be their third consecutive home win against Leicester. In addition, the club will move further away from the relegation places and will orientate itself on the upper places. As for the guests, their season for is rather sluggish. Due to their participation in the Europa League, Brendan Rodgers rotates his team and perhaps also leaves points more often as a result. After conceding 50 goals in the previous season, the team has already conceded 25 goals after just 14 games. So far this is not an improvement. Fortunately, Leicester has a striker they can rely on completely. Jamie Vardy is once again the squad's most successful goalscorer to date. The Englishman has struck nine times so far.
