  • GOAL! JAMES MADDISON SLIPS LEICESTER CITY INTO THE LEAD! 1-0! That is a wonderfully composed finish from the Foxes. They come forward, Barnes holds it up on the edge of the box and side-foots it to his fellow midfielder, who tucks his shot just around the last defender and in off the right post to beat Martinez. A quality goal for the visitors.

  • GOAL! HARVEY BARNES MAKES IT TWO FOR LEICESTER CITY! 2-0! It is a poacher's goal for the youngster, but he will not mind. The ball bounces into the box, Villa fail to clear and Vardy rifles a finish in. Martinez stops and spills it - right into the bath of the midfielder, who pounces and lashes it into the top of the net.

  • Ndidi picks up the first booking of the game after a particularly messy attempt to halt McGinn as the latter looked to engineer a counter-attack.

  • GOAL! BERTRAND TRAORE PULLS ONE BACK FOR ASTON VILLA! 2-1! That is just the start that the hosts would want! Leicester have been slow out of the blocks from the restart and are exposed with a lovely run down the left flank. The delivery tipped in by El Ghazi is tapped to the side by McGinn, attempting to pull it in himself and instead his partner manages to hack a finish home past Schmeichel. Game on!

  • Barnes looks to make an immediate response for Leicester, tearing away himself on the left flank. Douglas Luiz cuts him down and gets penalised for it with a yellow card. Maddison turns the subsequent free-kick in; it beats everyone and skips out at the right post.

  • Barnes puts a spark back into the match with a neat run through the middle, one where Elmohamady catches him with a hasty challenge and gets booked. Maddison will take the free-kick.
