Leeds and Aston Villa meet in the Premier League this week for a game that was originally scheduled for 28 December, but was was one of many fixtures that had to be postponed at the height of the Omicron variant crisis.

These are two clubs in contrasting form.

New Leeds boss Jesse Marsch didn't get the start he would have wanted at the weekend with a 1-0 defeat to Leicester - although only conceding once did at least make a change from the glut of goals that led to Marcelo Bielsa's dismissal.

Villa, on the other hand, come into this one off the back of success Premier League wins against Brighton and Southampton, having scored six times in the process without conceding.

This is everything you need to know about the game...

Leeds team news

Influential Leeds pair Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper are getting close to a return from injury but remains doubts until perhaps the weekend. Patrick Bamford could get onto the pitch, however, after making it into the matchday squad last time out.

Diego Llorente is also still a doubt, but Tyler Roberts will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on a hamstring problem this week.


Aston Villa team news

Ezri Konsa and Lucas Digne were both forced to miss the Southampton game due to testing positive for Covid-19 and remain doubts here as a result.

Carney Chukwuemeka could return to the squad after recovering from injury, but Marvelous Nakamba is still at least a couple of weeks away from getting back into action.


Leeds vs Aston Villa score prediction

It is a first home game for Marsch at Elland Road since being appointed at the end of last month, but you have to think that Villa come into this one as favourites.

Philippe Coutinho was on fire in their win over Southampton last time out, and if Leeds are still missing key players through the spine of their team, the Brazilian could have a field day feeding his teammates further up the pitch.

Prediction: Leeds 0-2 Aston Villa
