England have departed from the general rule of holding Premier League tours at weekends. This time, the lion’s share of everything scheduled will only take place on midweek.

Aston Villa have already changed seriously as the season progresses
Villans did sell Jack Grealish in the summer after all. There was a lot of money received for the captain, but it could not be spent well. That’s not to say Ings and the other newcomers failed – rather it was the manager, Dean Smith, who finally disappointed. The decision to replace him in the midst of the draw, with Steven Gerrard, was a risky one, but not badly justified by the result. The club has visibly revitalised under the new mentor. The January activity in Birmingham also looks promising, with players of the calibre of Coutinho and Deans, as well as Chambers, Olsen. Although not without losses, the team have clearly strengthened as a result.
Leeds try to get rid of ‘2nd season syndrome
The Peacocks have been hanging around outside the Premier League for a long time. But it seemed that Marcelo Bielsa has not wasted 2 whole years for nothing: he not only lifted the popular team back into the elite – it also left a very good mark there at the end of last season, firmly entrenched in the middle of the table. But in the new season they encountered some strange difficulties, which even Crazy, with its vast experience, was not ready to cope with. The good thing is that, firstly, there are now plenty of frankly weak teams in the APL, so that even when Leeds have given up, they have managed not to slip into a struggle for survival. Secondly, January started with wins in the league over Burnley and even West Ham, and only then, apparently relaxing a little, the team lost to a motivated Newcastle. Yes, there were no newcomers at Elland Road in January, but perhaps more importantly, they managed to retain their leader, Rafinha Diaz.
Last season, after Leeds’ ascension to the Premier League, the teams exchanged wins. And they beat each other on foreign pitches.
Aston Villa will of course be setting their sights on winning this encounter at home. Still, Leeds are coming alive and Biel is much more experienced than Gerrard. Bet on more than 2.5 goals (odds – 1.72).
