Leicester City v Aston Villa

High-flying Leicester City host Aston Villa on Sunday hoping to continue their fine start to the new Premier League campaign.

The Foxes are unbeaten from their first four outings having won two and drawn two to start the season and currently sit third in the table behind Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

New-signing Ghokhan Inler will likely make his full debut after coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw with newcomers Bournemouth before the international break.

The club's other notable addition Nathan Dyer, however, looks set for a place on the bench following the news that man of the moment Riyad Mahrez shrugged off a back problem to feature for Algeria in midweek.

Villa, meanwhile, have a number of injuries to contend with ahead of the trip to the KingPower Stadium, Idrissa Gueye (hamstring),  Tiago Ilori (match fitness), Jores Okore (knee) and Adama Traore (ankle) all sidelined for the clash.

One positive for manager Tim Sherwood is the return to fitness of England international centre-back Joleon Lescott, who is expected to make his debut for the Villans following his move from West Brom in the off-season.

Winger Jack Grealish is yet to feature this season but could make the match day squad should he manage to pass a late fitness test on his ankle injury.
