England FA Cup -- Match Time：3/19/2018 00:30 Monday(GMT+8)
Leicester City: Unbeaten in last 4 matches (Recent Form: WDDWLD)
Leicester appear to be in fine shape as they are unbeaten in last 4 matches across all competitions. ‘The Foxes’ take on Chelsea on Sunday at King Power Stadium in the FA Cup quarter-final. “We’ve got a target that we want to reach in the league and we’ve got a target that we want to reach in the cup. Every single game will play a part in us reaching those targets. We’ve got an important game against a top, top side. It’s going to be a very difficult game and we need everyone to get behind us. As players, we need to galvanise, show some spirit and show some togetherness again, and we need the fans behind us to make it a great atmosphere like it can be,” said Albrighton. Amartey is ruled out.
Chelsea: In poor shape (Recent Form: LWLLDW)
Chelsea don’t impress lately – 1 win, 1 draw, 3 losses in last 5 matches in all competitions and in midweek they were eliminated from UEFA Champions League by Barcelona. Now it’s time for away encounter in the FA Cup. “We want to reach Wembley but before that we must go to Leicester, give it our best and try to win the game. Barcelona is in the past now. We have to look forward. The FA Cup is still on for us, we have to go for it and that starts today. First of all, it’s going to be a battle. Leicester will try to give us a tough time and we will have to be mentally strong but we won’t be looking for excuses,” said Rudiger. David Luiz and Ross Barkley remain unavailable.
NOWGOAL BETTING VERDICT:
To sum up, it seems that hosts are favourites of this clash. Leicester were in good form lately and they had a full week to prepare. Chelsea don’t impress in the recent time and perhaps the home side may be able to get a positive result.
