Villa’s form under Unai Emery has dragged them away from the bottom of the table, and they’ve lost just one of their five league games since the Spaniard took over (W3 D1). However, they come into this game on the back of a shock defeat as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by League Two Stevenage Town (2-1). Leeds are trying to avoid being pulled back towards the relegation zone, but they’re winless in their last six in all competitions (D3 L3). They have drawn their last three outings though, including their own FA Cup tie when they scored a stoppage-time equaliser to force a replay against Cardiff City.
