A few changes in the line-up after the 1-1 at Goodison Park midweek, but still a good balanced team as Leicester again looked the strongest over the length of 90 minutes plus.

James Maddison was lively but still also good defensive work from Aston Villa stopped Leicester attempt as the first half went to it’s end.

First half was a dull affair with Leicester having most possession but the team lacks penetration power with Lookman, Daka and Maddison not really giving the team that edge as we do see when Harvey Barnes and Marc Albrighton are playing.

The only big attempt from Leicester 2nd half was a free kick from James Maddison but it was nicely saved by Aston Villa goalkeeper Martinez.

Interesting to see Fofana in as he makes this defense more safe and good to see a clean sheet for once as Leicester looked good with Soyuncu and Fofana as a partnership.

Aston Villa had a number of chances towards the end but a safe Kasper Schmeichel had no problem with those attempts as the result ended 0-0.

Leicester will be concentrating on Europe this season, with Roma being next. Premier League action against Spurs away will be a difficult hurdle on the 1st of May.
