Former Leicester King, who lost to West Ham in the previous round, will return to the King Power home to welcome the new Aston Villa 7-2 victory over defending champions Liverpool. Leicester City are better in the last 6 matches faced with 3 wins and 2 teams together scored 21 goals in this series with 14 goals belonging to the Fox. 

Key players Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi remain long-term absentees, while Daniel Amartey is currently likely to be absent due to injury. Dennis Praet has a 50% chance of recovering in time, but James Maddison is fit enough to make the first match of the season. Wesley Fofana could go straight to the starting line-up after both Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu were injured on international duty and were largely skeptical. We could also see Cengiz Under debut, who played 2 games for Turkey during international break to bolster his match stamina since joining the Foxy from AS Roma. Already over 2, 5 goals scored in Leicester's last 4 matches (Premier League) and Leicester has conceded at least 2 goals in the last 5/6 matches and are unbeaten in all 5 recent home games against Aston Villa in every arena. In the last round, they lost 3-0 to West Ham United. Anyway, The Foxes attacker is playing well, scoring 12 goals in the last 6 matches.  

There are no worries of a new injury after the international break, if one person isn't too disappointed when Jack Grealish is ignored by Gareth Southgate in the Nations League then it could be Dean Smith. Villa's captain played only in a friendly against Wales while the likes of Douglas Luiz, John McGinn and Conor Hourihane all started every game for their respective countries after the international break. However, Smith should keep the same squad that has shocked the football world with a 7-2 win over Liverpool in the last game, when Aston Villa only holds the ball 30% but has 18 shots. , the new rookie bought from Brentford last summer, Ollie Watkins, had a hat-trick in the first half and captain Jack Grealish also got a double in the second half. Aston Villa has won all three rounds.
