    Capital One Cup Preview: Leicester City V Man City

    Leicester players celebrate their 4-3 victory over FulhamThe Foxes will be hoping that they can repeat history this evening in their Capital One Cup quarter-final fixture against Manchester City, a side they forced a replay with back in the 2010/11 FA Cup when they drew 2-2.

    The two City sides will battle it out at the King Power Stadium in Leicester tonight, with the home side going into the clash with all to play for.

    Man City are on a high, having won five of their last six games – two of which came on the road. After their magnificent comeback away to European Champions Bayern Munich and a lethal attacking display that saw them put six past table-toppers Arsenal, Leicester City fans will be hopeful – to say the least, that their side might get lucky and force a replay at the Etihad.

    However, Leicester’s recent form has seen them pick up just one point in their last three games. But that point came as they hosted a strong Burnley side, which could give them some fighting spirit at home to The Citizens.

    With a tough league encounter away to QPR on Saturday, Leicester manager Nigel Pearson may be looking to rest a couple of players in their attempt to gain promotion to the top flight. Manuel Pellegrini will most likely rest a lot of his first team players, as they come in to this encounter on the back of a well-earned victory against Arsenal last weekend.

    Leicester fans will be boosted by the news that striker Jamie Vardy is likely to play a part after resting foot and shoulder injuries. The English striker has scored six times in the league for Leicester this season and between himself and fellow striker Dave Nugent, they have netter 16 goals in the league between them.

    The big news surrounding the fixture is that Sergio Aguero will not feature, after he limped off at the Emirates with a calf injury that could see him side-lined for up to a month. However when it comes to the blue side of Manchester’s attacking options, everyone knows that they can field any one of their strikers, and they’ll still cause mayhem for any backline. Jovetic is a likely option for Manuel Pellegrini and it would be good to see the flamboyant striker get some minutes under his belt.

    If the miracles of Christmas do bless Leicester fans with an early present, then they could see their side progress to the last four of the competition for the first time since 2000, which saw them beat Tranmere Rovers 2-0 in the final, with inspirational captain Matt Elliott scoring a brace and lifting the trophy.
