Aston Villa: Fans react to Leon Bailey injury update -Aston Villa

Steven Gerrard has confirmed that Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey will be ‘missing for a number of weeks’ with a muscle problem.

As to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the injury update ahead of the trip to Leicester City on Sunday.

Bailey’s Villa career is yet to really get going due to a number of issues, with the Jamaica international starting just four games this season. The £28.8m summer signing had to be withdrawn in the first half of the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday with a quad problem.

Gerrard revealed that the results of the 24-year-old’s scan were not positive, with Bailey set to be sidelined until after Christmas.

Matt Targett and Danny Ings may also miss out against the Foxes, although the Villa manager is prepared to give the pair every chance to prove their fitness in the meantime.
