Aston Villa predicted starting line-up vs Leicester City as huge Matty Cash call made

It’s the battle of two under pressure managers on Saturday afternoon.

Aston Villa return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon when they visit rock bottom Leicester City.

The Foxes are yet to pick up a win so far in this campaign and have just one point to their name, leaving Brendan Rodgers’ job hanging by a thread after just five games.

Predicted points tally: 46.

It’s not been plain sailing for Villa either but a spirited draw against Premier League champions Manchester City last time out has lifted spirits around Villa Park.

Saturday will mark a huge game for both and it’s safe to say even at this early stage, both are viewing it as a must-win.

Here’s the eleven we believe Steven Gerrard will choose to get the job done at the King Power Stadium.

GK - Emi Martinez

Undisputed number one in no danger of losing his place.

RB - Ashley Young

Performed superbly when brought on for Matty Cash in the draw with Manchester City. Even if Cash is good to go - Young has played his way into a start.

CB - Ezri Konsa

Konsa has formed a good partnership with Mings. Looks to be the best option moving forwards.

CB - Tyrone Mings

He may not have the armband anymore but put in a big captain’s performance versus City.

LB - Lucas Digne

Still yet to reach the heights he’s capable of but should start.

CM - Douglas Luiz

After an inconsistent couple of years, Luiz has become undroppable in recent weeks.

CDM - Boubacar Kamara

Kamara will provide the anchor in midfield.

CM - Jacob Ramsey

Ramsey provided the assist for the equaliser against Man City and could have scored a goal of his own. Needs to start.

RW - Leon Bailey

He’s started to show exactly why he was brought to the club in the first place. A fantastic goal last time out to cap off some great performances.

ST - Ollie Watkins

Worked incredibly hard versus the Champions and when playing the solo striker role - he’s by far the best option.

LW - Philippe Coutinho

Coutinho to come in from the start in place of John McGinn.
