Villa have romped through their opening Premier League fixtures with victories over Sheffield United, Fulham, Liverpool and Leicester so far.

Manager Dean Smith will see his side top the table – albeit possibly only briefly – if they claim just a draw against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds.

But the visitors are themselves looking to get back to winning ways after losing to Wolves 1-0 on Monday.

Leeds are winless in two games and will head to Villa Park seeking only a second victory at the ground since 2002.

Aston Villa v Leeds team news

Aston Villa: Ross Barkley should recover from a knock to feature here, while Keinan Davies is rated 50/50.

Ollie Watkins is fit again following an ankle issue, but both Wesley and Tom Heaton remain absent.

Leeds: Midfielder Kalvin Phillips is expected to be out for up to six weeks after picking up a shoulder injury against Wolves.

Liam Cooper could come back into the heart of defence if he proves to have recovered sufficiently from a groin issue sustained on international duty.

Our prediction: Aston Villa v Leeds

Villa are in flying form right now and kept a steady head with their 1-0 win over Leicester last weekend, which came after the stunning 7-2 clash with Liverpool.

Manager Smith will have watched how Wolves coped with Leeds’ lung-busting first-half display on Monday and will be confident his side can handle Bielsa’s attacking intent.

Villa are favourites heading into this clash and keeping it tight could well frustrate Leeds. With Phillips out and Cooper potentially absent again, it’s hard to see how Leeds keep out this rampant Villa forward line.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 2-0 Leeds
