There will be a minute’s applause before kick-off in honour of Saunders.
There is a group of former Villa players on the pitch as the club prepare to pay tribute to Ron Saunders.
Let’s all hope there is plenty of VAR today.
There are a couple of other 2pm kick-offs, with Newcastle hosting Southampton, while Norwich play Sheffield United. I will give you the odd update on those, too.
Jamie Vardy is top of the charts!
Sky Sports are currently showing a feature with Ben Chilwell and James Maddison chatting with Leicester City’s LGBT fan group, which is nice to see. The two players are speaking very openly, listening to the views of the fans and look very happy to learn.
Leicester will be eyeing a spot in the Champions League next season …
I am trying to work out where Iheanacho will play. Will he be down the middle with Vardy coming in from flank? Will they be a front two with a diamond behind them? So many options.
Paul Doyle on Brendan Rodgers …
The interesting news is that Brendan Rodgers has rewarded Kelechi Iheanacho for his cameo last weekend with a start today.
Aston Villa: Heaton, Elmohamady, Konsa, Mings, Targett, McGinn, Nakamba, Douglas Luiz, El Ghazi, Welsey, Grealish.
Subs: Nyland, Lansbury, Hourihane, Trezeguet, Engels, Guilbert, Kodjia
Leicester: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Ndidi, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison, Iheanacho, Vardy.
Subs: Ward, Justin, Morgan, Gray, Albrighton, Barnes, Perez.
Folk say Leicester City have been the surprise package of the season, as they sit second in the table and currently look like the only team capable of challenging Liverpool for the title but I am not shocked at all. The last time the Foxes won the Premier League it was, frankly, a bit of a fluke with everything going their way. Once again they are keeping pace at the top of the table and they look like they can maintain it until May.
Aston Villa are back in the big time but are likely to spend the season battling at the bottom of the table. They currently sit 17th, one point above the relegation zone. They have some interesting players with Wesley and Trezeguet promising plenty but are yet to look like the sort of attackers who will lead the club to safety but there is still time to bed them in. Jack Grealish, however, is the sort of player who can drag a team to the verge of safety. He has been their standout player for a few years now and is certainly doing the required business in the Premier League, as he recently proved at Old Trafford and he will be hopeful of doing similar today.
I am actually pretty excited by this one.
Kick-off 2pm (GMT)
