Leicester City are now level at the top of the Barclays Premier League with Arsenal after beating Spurs 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Wednesday thanks to Robert Huth's late winner at White Hart Lane.

It ended their run of three games without a league win, while Huth's goal was Leicester's first in 374 minutes.

On Tuesday, Aston Villa claimed their first win in the Barclays Premier League in 157 days when they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to a goal from central defender Joleon Lescott.

It was also Villa's first Premier League win in 20 attempts, having lost 14 of the previous 19.

They remain at the foot of the table and face high-riding Leicester City next.

The most common Premier League result between these teams at Villa Park is a draw. In nine clashes, four have been drawn while Villa have won three and Leicester two.

When they met at the King Power Stadium in September it was a remarkable game. Villa led 2-0 but Leicester struck three times in the final 18 minutes, with Nathan Dyer stealing an 89th-minute winner.
