Aston Villa have kept 12 clean sheets this season, the most they have recorded from the opening 22 fixtures of a league campaign.

Villa are looking to complete their first league double over Leicester since the 2003/04 campaign, following their 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium earlier this season.

Leicester's Brendan Rodgers has won all five of his PL matches at Aston Villa as a manager, his best such 100 per cent record versus an opponent in the competition.

Jamie Vardy has been directly involved in 99 PL goals since turning 30 (81 goals, 18 assists). Only five players have registered 100+ goal involvements aged 30+ (Teddy Sheringham, Ian Wright, Frank Lampard, Alan Shearer, and Gianfranco Zola).
