Aston Villa have lost their last two home league matches against Leeds United, losing 3-2 in the Championship in December 2018 and 3-0 in the Premier League last season. They’ve never lost three in a row at home to the Whites.

Villa have alternated between scoring once and scoring twice in their last seven home Premier League matches (2-3, 1-4, 2-0, 1-2, 2-1, 1-3, 2-2) and have only failed to net in one of their last 16 outings at Villa Park, a 0-0 draw with Everton in May.

Leeds beat West Ham in their last away match. They haven’t won consecutive matches on the road since May (Burnley and Southampton), while Leeds last won their first two away league matches in a year in 2005, beating Coventry City and Stoke City in the Championship.

This will be Leeds' 4,000th league match since joining the Football League in 1920. The last four teams to hit this figure as a Premier League side have lost their 4000th match – Spurs in November 2017 (1-2 v Leicester), Watford in April 2018 (0-1 v Huddersfield), AFC Bournemouth in December 2019 (0-2 v Brighton) and Crystal Palace in July 2020 (2-3 v Chelsea).
