EPL

Leicester 0-0 Aston villa

The full-time whistle ends a low-quality game between Leicester City and Aston Villa that neither side seemed capable of winning. Both had chances aplenty in the second half, but the final pass or shot was always lacking in conviction, meaning that despite being entertaining at times, the crowd were denied the chance to celebrate a goal at either end.

Starting lineup:

LEICESTER CITY (4-2-3-1): Kasper Schmeichel; James Justin, Wesley Fofana, Caglar Soyuncu, Timothy Castagne; Nampalys Mendy, Youri Tielemans; James Maddison, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, Ademola Lookman; Patson Daka.

LEICESTER CITY SUBS: Danny Ward, Harvey Barnes, Jamie Vardy, Marc Albrighton, Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez, Daniel Amartey, Hamza Choudhury, Ricardo Pereira.

ASTON VILLA (4-3-1-2): Emiliano Martinez; Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Tyrone Mings, Ashley Young; John McGinn, Douglas Luiz, Jacob Ramsey; Philippe Coutinho; Leon Bailey, Ollie Watkins.

ASTON VILLA SUBS: Robin Olsen, Emiliano Buendia, Calum Chambers, Marvelous Nakamba, Danny Ings, Carney Chukwuemeka, Benjamin Chrisene, Tim Iroegbunam, Tommi O’Reilly.

Post-match interviews:

“It’s enough to satisfy me because, after four defeats, it’s important you stop that,” Gerrard said. “I think our performance today was solid, and we came here to win the game, and unfortunately, we couldn’t do that. But when you can’t, you mustn’t lose.

“We’ve come up against a strong team today with very technically gifted players, but over the 90 minutes, we had the better chances slightly.

“Everyone was all in. Everyone was fighting for the cause. Unfortunately, we conceded four in the last game, so we needed to reset a few things. However, I’m sure our goalkeeper and defenders are very happy with their performances from a defensive point of view.”

“In the last couple of games, we played well, but we couldn’t find the killer pass in the final third,” said Rodgers. “Maybe that is a lack of energy because of the number of games we’ve played – the speed of our attacking combinations is not quite as we want it. Our heart and effort are there, though.

“We got the clean sheet. Then, in the last 15 minutes, we tired a bit.”

So, what’s next?

That goalless draw, Villa’s first of the season, brings an end to their four-match losing streak while ending Leicester’s three-match winning run at home.

Neither side moves in the table, though, with Leicester still 10th on 42 points and Villa five points and five places behind them in 15th.
