Leicester City will once again be aiming to take their Premier League form into the FA Cup as they vie with Manchester United for a place in the semi-finals.
Brendan Rodgers’ men welcome the Red Devils to the King Power Stadium fresh off the back of a 5-0 thumping of Sheffield United, a game in which Kelechi Iheanacho bagged a hat-trick.
So, will the Northern-Irishman be tempted to make many changes against Man United? Here’s the XI we think he’ll select…
There might only be a couple of alterations to the Leicester side this weekend, with one of those switches being enforced.
Kasper Schmeichel is set to remain in goal despite missing out in each of the last two rounds of the FA Cup.
Meanwhile, Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu all came through the clash against Sheffield United unscathed so will once again line up as a back-three.
One of those aforementioned alterations forced upon Rodgers is Ricardo Pereira, with the Portuguese set to be out with a “strain”. Timothy Castagne will consequently be moved over to the right in his absence.
This could see Luke Thomas be introduced into the side to deputise on the left-hand side.
The midfield pairing of Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans has served Leicester extremely well this season so they will likely be deployed once again.
However, another slight change could occur in midfield. £16.2m-rated Ayoze Perez was reportedly playing through injury against the Blades so despite scoring his third goal of the season, he could drop out for the fit-again Dennis Praet.
Meanwhile, the Foxes’ attack should look the same. Iheanacho will remain following his treble, whilst Jamie Vardy is surely set to be included after his hat-trick of assists last weekend.
