Compared to their free-spending competitors, Leicester’s summer window stands out like a sore thumb. Brendan Rodgers‘ emotions were displayed when his team lost 1-0 to Manchester United on deadline day.
On Thursday night, Jadon Sancho’s first-half winner maintained Leicester’s poor start to the new season, and Rodgers looked to take a jab at the owners for a paucity of new signings as Wout Faes – one of only two arrivals – hopelessly watched on.
The main reason for Leicester’s cautious summer approach is to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations, but failure to upgrade the team has left the Foxes stranded at the bottom of the table with just one point from five games.
Rodgers has witnessed four successive losses with this Leicester squad since being beaten by Brentford on the first day of the season. Their two away losses this season have come against top-four challengers Chelsea and Arsenal.
However, Leicester can take heart from the fact that Aston Villa has only won one of their ten Premier League matches since their promotion to the top flight in 2017, albeit a 2-1 victory at the Amex last season.
Steven Gerrard might take heart in the knowledge that he will not be the Premier League’s first managerial casualty – that unwelcome honor goes to Scott Parker – but the 42-year-old has admitted that he is concerned about his future at Villa Park.
While Villa showed more urgency in the second half, the result flattered Gerrard’s side, who have now lost three straight Premier League games – all to London rivals – and have only three points from a potential 15.
Such adversity has dropped the Lions to 19th place, and while there is still a lot of football to be played in the coming months, early signs of discontent can be heard across the West Midlands as Gerrard desperately seeks to find a way to beat the champions.

Leicester’s arrival on the deadline day, Faes might also make his Premier League start for the Foxes this week. The ex-Reims man could be rushed into play with Jonny Evans if Daniel Amartey is sidelined again by a muscular ailment.
If that is the case, Wilfred Ndidi will be able to return to midfield, though Boubakary Soumare, Ricardo Pereira, and Ryan Bertrand will be unable to do so.
Jamie Vardy struggled to make an impact for Leicester City in midweek, which will undoubtedly help Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanachochances in this one.
- Aston Villa
The luxury of a nearly fully-fit squad did not aid Villa at the Emirates, and Gerrard did not pick up any new injury concerns on Wednesday night, leaving Diego Carlos on his own.
Luiz’s eye-catching equalizer from a corner prompted cries for the Brazil international to start ahead of John McGinn. He should be in with a chance of getting back into the opening XI after Arsenal’s interest was turned down.
Leon Bailey was one of the bright spots in Villa’s defeat to the Gunners and would expect to keep his position in the attacking line. At the same time, Emiliano Martinez is unlikely to lose his starting spot despite failing to claim credit for both of Arsenal’s goals.
