Aston Villa vs Leeds: Predicted line-ups, Tv channel, Live stream – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Aston Villa will face Leeds United in the Premier League clash at Villa Park on Friday night.
Dean Smith’s side have made a perfect start to the 2020-21 Premier League season and could go top of the table tonight with a win against the Whites.
Villa are heading into this match on the back of a 1-0 victory against Leicester City in their last Premier League game.
Summer signings Ross Barkley and Ollie Watkins have been in fantastic form and Villa will be looking to pick up maximum points from their home fixture.
Leeds, on the other hand, won two, lost two and drawn one in a mixed start to their first Premier League campaign in 16 years.
The newly-promoted Premier League side have impressed heavily so far, and they would be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat against Wolves.
