    One ruled out and two in doubt: Gerrard provides mixed team news update ahead of Aston Villa vs Leicester


    Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard has, on Friday, provided fitness updates on a pair of the club’s summer additions.

    Foxes test

    Gerrard will of course lead his side back into action this coming Sunday.

    The Claret and Blue are set to welcome Leicester City to Villa Park for a Premier League showdown, hopeful of a swift return to winning ways.

    The new manager bounce has of course been in full effect in the West Midlands over the last couple of weeks, with the dismissal of Dean Smith, and subsequent arrival of Gerrard, having culminated in back-to-back wins over Brighton and Crystal Palace respectively.

    And though they were ultimately put to the sword by Manchester City last time out, Villa again provided a solid account of themselves, pushing Pep Guardiola’s champions to the very end.

    In turn, the hosts will no doubt head into Sunday’s action fully confident in their chances of getting the club’s climb up the ranks of the Premier League table firmly back on track.

    Ings hope/Bailey blow

    And, as outlined above, ahead of his side’s fast-approaching meeting with Leicester, on Friday, Steven Gerrard has provided a fitness update on his squad.

    The main focus surrounded the wellbeing of attackers Danny Ings and Leon Bailey, both of whom have spent time on the sidelines of late owing to injury problems.

    Regarding the former, Gerrard revealed his hope that Ings will mark his return to the pitch this weekend, after being forced to sit out the club’s last two fixtures.

    The news on fellow attacker Bailey, however, proved considerably less positive, with the summer arrival at Villa Park set for ‘a number of weeks’ on the sidelines owing to a quad issue:
