2 mins:

Some early pressure from the home side. Timothy Castagne’s floated ball from the right loops just too far. Leciester recycle but it ends in a foul on Tyrone Mings by Iheanacho.

KICK OFF! We are under way at the King Power…

The players are making their way onto the pitch and we are nearly ready to go here in the East Midlands…

These two have played 22 times in the Premier League with the Foxes coming out on top overall with nine wins compared to Villa’s four.

It’s a full Premier League debut for Wesley Fofana this evening. The Saint-Etienne recruit is thrown straight in following an injury to Caglar Soyuncu. He is one of three changes for Leciester along with Iheanacho and Praet.

Just over 15 minutes until kick-off in this Midlands clash.

It’s third vs fourth in the Premier League tonight. The last time Dean Smith’s side played here they were beaten 4-0 in the final top flight game to let fans in. A lot has changed for them since then…

Tonight’s game is another Premier League game only available via Sky Sports Box office for a cost of £14.95.

Buyers were less than impressed with the coverage yesterday, will this evening be any different.
