Aston Villa make the trip to Leicester City this weekend, looking to kick on and build on their incredible 7-2 win over Liverpool.
Dean Smith’s side visit the King Power Stadium on Sunday evening, in what looks like an entertaining game on paper.
Here’s how we think Villa will line-up…
Martinez has made an impressive start to life at Villa and there’s no doubt about his place in the starting lineup.
He could be busy up against the dangerous Jamie Vardy.
Cash has been a revelation since signing from Nottingham Forest, making the right-back spot his own.
His tussle with Harvey Barnes could make for interesting viewing.
Konsa is another who is in excellent form, nailing down a spot in the side.
His duel with Vardy could be a vital match-up, potentially determining the eventual outcome.
Mings has become a real leader for his boyhood club, marshalling the troops at the back.
He is now one of the first names on Smith’s team-sheet.
Like Cash, Targett looks a very solid full-back option for Villa.
He stuck to his task doggedly against Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and will surely start again on Sunday.
Luiz has enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign, with three Premier League appearances to his name.
His combative style in the middle of the park will be crucial against a tidy Leicester side.
McGinn scored against Liverpool and remains a key player, so leaving him out against Leicester makes little sense.
He has developed a good understanding with Luiz in midfield, which bodes well heading into the weekend.
Barkley enjoyed a debut to remember for Villa, scoring against old rivals Liverpool from his Everton days, and looking outstanding in his all-round game.
The 26-year-old should complete Villa’s midfield at Leicester, giving it a lovely balance.
Trezeguet is one of Villa’s less-heralded players currently, but he is still a key cog in the machine.
He will look to get the better of Leicester’s James Justin down the right flank.
Villa’s talisman is a certainty to start at Leicester, as his reputation continues to grow.
He was unplayable against Liverpool and a similar performance on Sunday would give his side a great chance of victory.
Having scored a hat-trick in the rout of Liverpool, Watkins will be brimming with confidence.
He will again lead the line for Villa, looking to show that his brilliance against the Reds was far from a one-off.
