Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard expects a battle against Leicester City today.

Gerrard says they'll face the Foxes with total respect.

He said, “You've got to be respectful of the challenge. Brendan's done a really strong job at Leicester and we know that they've got very dangerous players.

“We know we're going to have to control the front four or five, depending on how they set-up. We need to keep their main threats as quiet as possible.

“That's going to take hard work, organisation and people really rolling up their sleeves to defend our goal.

“We know we've got talent and we know that we've got quality in our team to hurt any team. We've proved that in the opening weeks, they proved that before I came in the door.

“We'll strive to keep a clean sheet, knowing that we've got players that can hurt Leicester."
