Leeds’ 3-0 win over Southampton was yet another entertaining fixture involving Bielsa’s men and, with any threat of relegation almost diminished, there is little doubt that they will continue to play with such openness and freedom.
Tuesday was the fifth time in their last six Premier League games that they have recorded seven shots on target and recorded nine when these sides last met back in October, meaning the Whites could be in for another fruitful outing.
Villa have faced 118 shots on target this season, the seventh-most in the top flight, with 29 of those coming across their last four outings including seven against Leicester, nine against Brighton and 10 versus West Ham.
Leeds United vs Aston Villa Tips and Predictions
Over 5.5 shots on target for Leeds is priced at 5/6 (1.83) with bet365 and looks a strong selection for this fixture.
