Mark Lawrenson has predicted Aston Villa and Leicester City to play out a 1-1 draw.

Villa will take on Leicester at Villa Park in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Villans will head into the match against the Foxes on the back of a 2-1 defeat to defending champions Manchester City in the league.

Meanwhile, Leicester played out a 2-2 draw with Southampton away from home at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league on Wednesday.

Liverpool legend Lawrenson believes that the match between Villa and Leicester will end in a 1-1 draw, which on Betfair is rated at 5/1.

Lawrenson told BBC Sport: ‘This should be a good game, because Villa are still on a high after Steven Gerrard’s appointment and Leicester seem to be having one of those spells where they seem to make life difficult for themselves.

“Foxes midfielder James Maddison has hit a purple patch at the moment with his goals and assists but, so far under Gerrard, Villa strike me as having proper plans for every team they face

“That’s the same for every manager, of course, but Gerrard will leave no stone unturned. Maddison is Leicester’s most creative player so he will specifically stop him from providing for Jamie Vardy – or try to anyway.”
