Our prediction: Aston Villa v Leicester

Two good teams, playing without fear, playing without intense pressure, featuring sparkling English talents. This could be a cracker for neutrals across the land.

Villa boast Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins in opposition to Barnes, Maddison and Vardy. Those five on the same pitch suggests goals aplenty.

Losing this one wouldn't be cataclysmic for each side, and for that reason, expect both teams to go for the jugular in a bid to advance their ambitions.

Our prediction: Aston Villa 2-2 Leicester (12/1 at bet365)
