Leicester City vs Aston Villa on Monday, March 9 2020, 20:00 GMT

Aston Villa are the guests at King Power Stadium on Monday night for the Premier League meeting with hosts Leicester. Aston Villa are currently 19th in the EPL table and they will be looking to overcome Leicester side in this game.

Aston Villa are in a slump right now, they only won 1 of their 5 recent matches. They only won against Watford in January, but have never won again since. Smith's team are still 19th in the table but are only two points from 16th-placed West Ham and would therefore move above the Hammers should they manage to triumph in this game.

Leicester City have lost their last two Premier League matches on Monday, and won 1-0 against Birmingham recently. They have failed to win any of their last four matches in the Premier League (D2 L2), failing to score in their last three. However, they are still 3rd in the EPL table with 50 points (W15 5D 8L).

In terms of history, Aston Villa have won only once of their 10 away Premier League games against Leicester City, winning 5-0 in January 2004 and have never won again since. With these results, Leicester most likely will put a show in this game.


Leicester possible starting lineup:

Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Perez, Praet, Ndidi, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Aston Villa possible starting lineup:

Reina; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Targett; Nakamba, Luiz; Trezeguet, Grealish, El Ghazi; Samatta



Arsenal vs Manchester City on Monday, March 11 2020, 19:30 GMT

Arsenal will travel to Manchester on Wednesday, 11 March 2020. This will be an exciting match because the Gunners and the Citizens are going nearly equal strong into this match. The original match was scheduled to take place on March 1 but was postponed due to Manchester City's participation in the Carabao Cup final on the same day.

Arsenal currently sit in 9th place in the table with 40 points (W9 D13 L6), only 1 point behind Tottenham (8th place) and 2 points behind Manchester United (7th place). Arsenal are on fire right now, they have won 3 of their last 5 matches.  But still, They will struggle to compete against Manchester City.

They currently sit in 2nd place in the table with 57 points (W18 D3 L6) far behind Liverpool with 82 points right now. Same as the Gunners, the Citizens have won 3 of their last 5 matches either. Manchester City have lost just 0 of their last 5 games against Arsenal FC (in all competitions).

In terms of history, Arsenal haven’t won any of their last 6 games against Manchester City. However, with these recent game results, it will be tough to decide which one will pull this game off.


Manchester City possible starting lineup:

Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Zinchenko; Rodri, B. Silva, D. Silva; Foden, Sterling, Aguero

Arsenal possible starting lineup:

Leno; Saka, Mari, Luiz, Bellerin; Xhaka, Ceballos; Aubameyang, Ozil, Pepe; Nketiah.
