When the calendar turned to January, Leicester City was flying highly in the Premier League, well clear for a UEFA Champions League spot next season.
But the wheels have come off the wagon for Brendan Rodger's team: after January 1, the Foxes have won just once in league play, and now sit just two points ahead of Chelsea, and five ahead of a charging Manchester United, in third place.
Aston Villa comes into Monday in 19th place, but also with a chance to jump up to 16th with a win, and out of the relegation zone.
These two teams played twice in January, in the EFL Carabao Cup semifinals, and Villa got a 1-1 draw and 2-1 win. But today, Leicester City is a huge favorite.
Can the Foxes fix their slump?
