Leicester have only lost two of their last 13 matches in all competitions and brought an end to a four match run without a win when they beat West Brom 4-1 last weekend. The Foxes are only three points away from Burnley in the Premier League table and could qualify for next year's Europa League. They have the advantage of coming into this match fresher than Chelsea and will hope to get a revenge over Chelsea as they suffered a 2-1 league defeat at the King Power Stadium earlier this season. Their route in the FA Cup has seen them beat Fleetwood, Peterborough and Sheffield United so far.

Kelechi Iheanacho should get the nod over Shinji Okazaki and start behind the lone striker Jamie Vardy. Aleksander Dragovic and Marc Albrighton could also come into contention for recalls. Vicente Iborra and Wilfred Ndidi are likely to anchor the midfield while Christian Fuchs should be restored as left back, with Danny Simpson on the other flank. Daniel Amartey will not return from his hamstring injury until after the international break.

Chelsea went down 3-0 against Barcelona at the Nou Camp in Champions League and the FA Cup remain their last chance to win silverware this season. They are currenly outside the top four in Premier League having suffered consecutive defeat to Manchester City and Manchester United (both away) before to narrowly beat Crystal Palace 2-1 last weekend. Antonio Conte's men have coasted through in the FA Cup, beating Norwich, Newcastle and Hull so far. The Blues have won 12 of their last 15 matches against Leicester in all competitions (D2 L1) but failed to beat the Foxes back in January at Stamford Bridge as the match ended in a goalless draw.

Antonio Conte has rotated his options in previous rounds and could yet choose Willy Caballero as goalkeeper. Alvaro Morata is expected to lead the line while Pedro and Willian are in contention for a starting berth as offensive midfielder, alongside Eden Hazard. In midfield, Tiemouè Bakayoko is expected to partner N'Golo Kantè, while Davide Zappacosta should replace Victor Moses as right wing-back. The likes of Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta should form the three man backline. Defender David Luiz and midfielder Ross Barkley are out remain sidelined.


Leicester (4-4-1-1): Schmeichel; Fuchs, Maguire, Dragovic, Simpson; Iborra, Ndidi, Mahrez, Albrighton; Iheanacho; Vardy

Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Caballero; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill; M. Alonso, Zappacosta, Kantè, Bakayoko; Hazard, Willian; Morata
