Leicester City will take a break from league action for the rest of the month, after ending on high, and play some Cup games. First up is the FA Cup 4th round; the Foxes qualified after a full 2nd team saw off Wigan in the 3rd round.
Today’s opponents Brentford snuck by a struggling Stoke City to qualify, but are well rested and in good form that’s seen them move up to 5th in the Championship. They’ll be tougher opposition than the Latics, but we should still expect rotation.
Check out below for all the information on how to watch, along with team news and lineups when they come.

Leicester City Team News:
Wilfred Ndidi has made an amazing recovery and is fit again, but Jamie Vardy will miss at least this game, possibly more. Nampalys Mendy is probably out for a little longer than that, so we might see the return of Hamza Choudhury, who seems to have been sidelined for off the pitch reasons.
Brentford Team News:
The Bees will be without Sergi Canos, Josh Clarke and Nikolaos Karelis, as they have been for most of the season. They were clearly favouring their promotion chase with their selection in the 3rd round and may put out a weakened team again.
Leicester City: A heavily rotated, but still pretty strong looking 4-4-2
Brentford: The Bees opt to play 0 of their good Championship level players
