Games against Derby have given me a lot of joy over the years and this could be another to add to the list. Cup games always have a little added excitement and the Foxes could really do a boost to push them onwards in a season that’s quickly running out of steam.
Derby County fans will understand that feeling too, finding themselves outside the playoff places after a patchy run of form. After 3rd and 5th placed finishes failed to produce promotion, the tension has been rising at Pride Park, and they could certainly do with a cup run as well.

Leicester City Team News:
Daniel Amartey remains away with Ghana, but the Algerians are back in the country. While Mahrez will be available, Slimani has a strain that might keep him out, along with his fellow target man Leo Ulloa, who will be a game time decision.
Derby County Team News:
The Rams have a much longer injury list, but Scottish international Ikechi Anya is the only regular in doubt.
