    Aston Villa's next two games are huge. They actually played very well for at least the first half, and looked like cruising to victory when Carles Gil doubled their lead. If Tim Sherwood can pick himself up he'll look back at the game differently.

    Leicester 3-2 Aston Villa

    Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood, speaking to BBC Sport: "I’ve never felt this bad. Ever. There was a lot of bad play there in the last half hour. The only way you can stop the momentum is to stop the opposition. We turned it over stupidly.

    "What can I say? I’m gutted for everyone who’s associated with the football club. We have to stop letting in soft goals.Who cares if we played well? We lost. Totally lost.

    "The players are as disappointed as I am. They are a good group.We just have to stop the errors -  sooner rather than later. We’ve got two big derbies coming up, so we’ll make sure we are right for them.We played some good stuff but we've come away with nothing."

    Quote Message: We lost control when they scored their first goal. Unfortunately, we couldn't wrestle the momentum back from them. We kept giving the ball back to them. The game should have been finished with 30 minutes left because we were 2-0 up. It was individual errors - we aim to stop that. On reflection them goals from Leicester, they didn't have to work hard for them. We got nothing from the game so I'm bitterly disappointed. They played well for an hour and we were unable to wrestle the game back. from Tim Sherwood on Sky Sports Aston Villa manager

    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, speaking to Sky Sports: "It’s fantastic. We showed spirit, good character, after 2-0 I watched my players and they believed everything was possible. You can lose but it’s important to fight until the end of the match. It was an important victory to restart well and get three points, it’s fantastic.

    "I told the players we have 11 points and we still need 29. I don’t know when to achieve these points but as soon as possible. At the moment we want to think only about the safety of the team."

    SMS Message: As a long serving Villa fan I feel that no matter who you buy or which manager you bring in the Aston Villa mentality is to lose. Since Martin O'Neill left Villa have deserved to go down nearly every season. To lose from 2-0 up in 10 minutes is not acceptable and I'm not upset, just the usual Villa performance many of us have learnt to accept. They don't deserve my empathy and emotional time. Villa are losers and will watch every club pass them by who have had much more humble beginnings. Leicester, Palace and Stoke all started with a lot less and have now surpassed us. We are now the cannon fodder of football. It's only a matter of time when you see us losing to Carlisle in the second division from A livid Villa fan

    Substitute Nathan Dyer gets what must surely be a winner, though at some personal cost.

    A cross comes in from the right, Riyad Mahrez again, Dyer gets to the ball ahead of Villa keeper Brad Guzan to head home and is then absolutely cleaned out.

    Leicester 0-1 Aston Villa

    Leicester now forcing the pressure, but Villa are set up to counter well with plenty of pace up top. This is all working out nicely for Tim Sherwood. Leicester winger Marc Albrighton crudely chops down Carles Gil to stop exactly that - and he's booked.

  77. Jack off the mark

    Leicester 0-1 Aston Villa

    That's Jack Grealish's first Premier League goal and his first goal for Villa full-stop.

    Well now they do have a goal! Aston Villa into a deserved lead and it's the game's brightest player, Jack Grealish, who has it.

    Leicester can't clear a corner, Carlos Sanchez and Micah Richards both have a swing at it but when the ball rolls out to Grealish on the edge of the box he opens his body out and curls it through a host of bodies and into the net. Not unlike Daley Blind's goal yesterday.

    He celebrates by sprinting over to hug manager Tim Sherwood.

    Something wonderfully old-school about Jack Grealish isn't there? A touch of the Chris Waddle about the way he drifts past players, seemingly at walking pace.

    He beats two men after cutting in from the left but again his eventual shot is poor. Needs a bit of work.

    Villa have had over 63% of possession so far, and created a couple of fine chances too.

    Leicester 0-0 Aston Villa

    Another excellent chance for Aston Villa, the sort they should be taking. Carles Gil wins the ball on the right and sets off on goal, he has the vision to look up and pick out Jack Grealish superbly on the left of the box. Grealish has time to set himself but his shot is very weak and Kasper Schmeichel could throw a cap on it.

    Gil was caught by Jeff Schlupp and needs a bit of treatment but he's OK.

    Joleon Lescott ignores Martin Keown and launches a long, straight ball which Gabby Agbonlahor can't bring down. Not his game.

    Quarter of the way through the game, Villa should be ahead but it's a decent enough contest.

    "Everything Leicester do in attack always seems to be at such breakneck speed, it's not surprising their play breaks down.

    "The best we've seen from them has come down the right-hand side. There's been a nice pattern to Aston Villa's play and they seem determined to pass it out from the back."

    True enough Max. And to illustrate the point Villa left-back Jordan Amavi puts in a decent cross which Gabby Agbonlahor can't meet with any sort of power. Christian Benteke may well have done.

    Leicester come back at the other end though as Riyad Mahrez and Richie De Laet work it nicely down the right but the final cross is not great.

    Jack Grealish growing into the game for Villa, playing in a free role behind the striker. He's annoyed me though by not changing his number 40 shirt now he's a first-team regular.The number 10 is still available!

    A niche complaint. Villa playing some nice stuff now, Grealish to Scott Sinclair, and his cross is palmed away by Kasper Schmeichel.

    "Gabriel Agbonlahor's pace is awesome but he put just a little bit too much weight on the cross. Too little pace and it would have been intercepted, too much and it would have run through. That's exactly what happened."

  96. CLOSE!

    Leicester 0-0 Aston Villa

    Oh, Villa should be ahead! Robert Huth finds himself in a foot race with Gabby Agbonlahor, Wildebeest v Cheetah and Agbonlahor flies past him.

    On the left of the box, Agbonlahor could possibly shoot but decides to lay it across, he overcooks it though and Scott Sinclair has to stretch - putting it into the side-netting.

    A better pass and it's 1-0. Excellent start.

    Gabby Agbonlahor uses his pace to typical effect, winning the first corner of the day. Villa look a handful from set-pieces, plenty of height, and Carles Gil shoots wide after Micah Richards' header.

    "Danny Drinkwater had no right to be shooting there but it was dangerous and dipping.

    Not from there...! Great effort from Danny Drinkwater, a dipping 35-yarder onto the roof of the net. Leicester coming out with everything dialled to '11'.

    The flags are waving around the King Power, in my experience one of the more blustery grounds in the Premier League, though no Stoke, as we close in on kick-off.

    More meteorologically themed updates to come.

    Atmosphere building. I can hear a bit of 'Holte Enders in the sky' from the away end.

  109. Who'd be a manager?

    Ben Dirs

    BBC Sport

    Both Tim Sherwood and Claudio Ranieri know all too well the perils of management and the fact that the sack is always hanging over their heads.

    Ben Dirs spoke to MK Dons boss Karl Robinson about the subject in this excellent piece which I urge you to read.

    Quote Message: Perhaps if managers revealed more, they would be abused less. Or perhaps the risk of revealing too much is too great for many to take. One of the unfortunate side effects of all this money sloshing around the game is that fans paying fortunes for tickets and TV subscriptions feel entitled to say what they want, to hell with the hidden consequences.
  110. Draw written all over it?

    At home, the Foxes have suffered just one defeat in their nine Premier League games against Aston Villa (W4 D4).

  115. 'The Tinkerman hasn't tinkered'

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Former Leicester defender Matt Elliott: "The key to Leicester’s good start to the season has been that the Tinkerman hasn't tinkered. And why would he change something that was working well? 

    "Claudio Ranieri's brought in good players to strengthen the squad but things look rosy at Leicester at the moment. They've followed on from their good form last season."

  116. Post update

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    Joleon Lescott and Micah Richards know each other well as former team-mates at Manchester City and England, and they are having plenty of chat as they go through a rigorous pre-match stretching exercise.

    Tim Sherwood mentioned in midweek that Lescott can have a similar impact to that of Robert Huth - who came in and steadied the Leicester ship so well last year. 

  117. 'Villa are in transition'

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    Martin Keown

    BBC Radio 5 live at the King Power Stadium

    "Aston Villa have been struggling a bit since the start of this season, while Leicester can move into the top three with a win, who would have though that? They are really vibrant when playing at home. 

    "Villa are a team in transition at the moment and they need something today. Christian Benteke leaving left them a bit short but Jack Grealish is a player Tim Sherwood really believes in and Joleon Lescott coming in is a good acquisition. 

    "There's lots of talent there, but Villa need to start scoring quickly."

  118. Leicester's deadline day

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    Leicester, meanwhile, made an exciting addition (in my book) as they landed Swansea City winger Nathan Dyer on a season-long loan deal.  

    Dyer is on the bench today. Pace.

  119. Villa's deadline day

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    On Transfer Deadline Day Villa signed West Brom defender Joleon Lescott for a fee of up to £2m and Liverpool defender Tiago Ilori on a season-long loan.

    Villa paid £1m for the loan of Ilori, 22, with the option to sign him at the end of the season for between £6m and £9m depending on clauses.

    Lescott, 33, who has 26 England caps, has signed a two-year contract and makes his debut this afternoon.

    Villa also signed Anderlecht keeper Matija Sarkic, 18, on a three-year deal.

  120. One-way road for Tim?

    Leicester v Aston Villa (16:00 BST)

    As for Aston Villa's start to the season, after a very busy summer in the transfer market, both in and out, it's been a mixed bag.

    An away win on the opening day but just a point since. Losing Fabian Delph, Ron Vlaar and Christian Benteke was a massive ask for anyone, and now boss Tim Sherwood's Premier League managerial win % rate has fallen below 50% for the first time in his career (48.7%), the skids may be on.

    Or are we backing Tim to turn it around?

    It's safe to say that the reaction to Leicester appointing Claudio Ranieri in the summer was a resounding 'What?!'

    Nigel Pearson may have caused a few negative headlines for the club last season but he masterminded a truly great escape.

    Claudio Ranieri

    So there were bemused faces all around as the Foxes brought the tinkerman back to England after an 11-year gap and following a woeful spell in charge of the Greece national side.

    But maybe Leicester chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha knew what he was doing all along.

    Claudio has started very nicely...
