Aston Villa 7/1 to beat Leicester or money back

There’s another all-Premier League tilt in the fifth round of the English FA Cup this weekend as Aston Villa host Leicester City at Villa Park on Sunday, Feb. 15. Villa, of course, has been in the headlines this week for finally sacking manager Paul Lambert after a terrible stretch of games since last fall. Both Villa and Leicester are in the relegation zone in the league and it’s possible that they could both go down at the end of the season.

Leicester manager Nigel Pearson could also be treading on thin ice and some reports mistakenly said he was sacked last week after losing a league game to Crystal Palace. Some reports said he was let go and then reinstated shortly after. Leicester is in the basement of the league still following their 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the week.

Leicester has just four league wins all year, but are a couple of victories away from reaching Wembley in the FA Cup. Villa’s claim to infamy this season is their 12 goals in 25 matches, which is an all time low for the Premier League. They’ve been shut out 15 times this campaign and are currently on a 10-game winless streak with two goals in that stretch. Leicester beat Villa in the league a few weeks ago and are hoping for a repeat performance on Sunday.
