Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Villa Park will host Friday’s Premier League game between Aston Villa and Leeds United, the two mid-table sides. The Villans aim to recover from a shocking FA Cup loss to Stevenage, and, no doubt, Unai Emery is going to field the best possible side this time out. Leander Dendoncker is banned for the match, while Diego Carlos remains on the sidelines with an Achilles injury. Key attacker Ollie Watkins should be recalled to the starting XI.
Meanwhile, the Whites came from two goals behind to share the spoils with Cardiff City in the FA Cup round 3. Leeds United have drawn each of their last three games in all competitions, and given Villa’s display in the loss to Stevenage, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up one point from the match. Patrick Bamford is a major doubt, while all Luis Sinisterra, Archie Gray, and Stuart Dallas remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Philippe Coutinho):
Philippe Coutinho is a Brazilian football player born on 12th of June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. Coutinho started his football career for Vasco da Gama where he played in the youth as well. By the age of 16 Internazionale signed Coutinho but let him play in Brazil until he was 18 years old.
After 2 difficult seasons Internazionale let Coutinho go for a loan period to Espanyol and after 1 season he got transferred to Liverpool for approximately 8 million euro. Coutinho played in several youth teams of Brazil but made his debut for the first team in October 2010.
With a height of only 171cm Coutinho is physically weak. He compensates his physical ability by being very creative, having a great vision and passing. The preferred position of Coutinho is attacking midfielder where he gets easily into the right position to give an assist.
