As up and down as Leicester City’s recent history has been, it’s pretty clear on one thing: they’re bad at knockout football. Ot lets be nice and positive for Europe and say they’re bad at domestic cups.
Mostly that comes down to two factors: we always draw other Premier League teams and we don't really seem to care that much, usually fielding a team of players who can't crack the regular 11. The draw came up again, paring us with Everton and now we wait on Claudio’s selection to see if both factors are here again.
