'Lively' – Vinnie Jones predicts result of Leeds v Leicester clash
Vinnie Jones has predicted that Leeds United and Leicester will share the spoils in the Premier League clash on Monday.
He said it would be a “lively score draw” after Leeds thumped Aston Villa in their home ground last Monday.
Jones also said he wouldn’t be doing this year’s I’m a Celeb, saying that he was enjoying watching Leeds too much to go on the show.
Writing in his regular column for BetVictor Jones said, “Why would I go on I’m a Celeb when Bamford and the lads are this good?
“I told you last week they’d beat Villa and that was a thumping three-nil win away from home.
‘It’s Leicester at home next for Leeds for the Monday night game. It’s another tough game for Bielsa and the boys against a back-in-form Brendan Rogers team after Vardy grabbed the points at Arsenal, so I’m going for a lively score draw here.”

Bamford v Vardy
A draw against Leicester wouldn’t be the worst result in the world, especially after Rodgers’ men shut out Arsenal at the Emirates.
Leeds will attack Leicester and that could open them to the counter-attack, so Vardy’s pace will be a real threat.
However, we think that Robin Koch has settled in at the back now and will be more than a match for him.
Liam Cooper could well be back for that game but even if he isn’t we’ll be happy with Koch and Luke Ayling in the centre of defence.
And, while Leeds will have their work cut out with Vardy, Leicester will be wondering how to stop Bamford after his outstanding hat-trick last Friday against Aston Villa.
He’ll be looking to maintain his fast start to the season after scoring six in the first six games – the same number as Vardy has.
