Aston Villa's Ross Barkley (left) celebrates scoring his side's winner during the Premier League match at the King Power Stadium, Leicester.

Ross Barkley’s added-time winner lifted Aston Villa into second in the Premier League as they beat Leicester 1-0 at the King Power Stadium.

With the Premier League’s first goalless draw of the season looming, Barkley collected a pass from John McGinn and advanced 10 yards before lashing a low shot past Kasper Schmeichel.

Villa finally recorded a shot on target in the 69th minute, Douglas Luiz hitting his effort straight at Kasper Schmeichel from distance, but it was their final one in the first minute of added time which made all the difference.

The introduction of James Maddison, back after a calf injury, failed to lift the Foxes, who later turned to Islam Slimani for his first appearance for the club in 1,006 days.

Villa have won their opening four league games of a season for the first time since the 1930-31 campaign.

In truth neither side deserved to win a game low on entertainment with the Foxes suffering from the absence of Jamie Vardy with a calf injury and Villa strangely low-key considering their last outing was the 7-2 win over Liverpool.
