These days the FA Cup is often seen as nothing more than a distraction and doubly so for teams already dealing with the Champions League. For a Leicester City side sliding inevitably towards their doom, this is definitely under the distraction heading.
Of course, when you think about how the league games have been this year, a genuinely enjoyable distraction, if it’s anything like the Derby game, is exactly what the fans need. Unfortunately for the Foxes, today’s opponents Millwall are moving in the opposite direction; they currently sit 6th in League One after three consecutive wins.

Leicester City Team News:
Still no Ulloa or Slimani. Ranieri stated in the week that he wanted to give the players who beat Derby another chance, so expect to see a similar side to that.
Millwall Team News:
The Lions will be waiting on the fitness of Callum Butcher, as well as Ben Thompson and Lee Gregory, who both played key rolls in the upset of Watford in the last round.
Today's starting XI: Zieler, Amartey, Benalouane, Wagué, Chilwell, Gray, Mendy, King (c), Musa, Kapustka, Okazaki. #MilLei— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 18, 2017
Very similar to the last round, but Wagué gets a debut.
Remember when we used to be good at cups?
