The Foxes opted for something similar to a 4-4-2 in the last round, and certainly didn’t look good in their old favourite against Norwich. Nonetheless, I think they’ll give the 4-1-4-1 another try, albeit with a very different cast.
Rather than who might drop out, this will be question of who, if any, will remain in the side:
GK: Danny Ward - Kasper didn’t play until the quarterfinal of the League Cup and I suspect that will continue in the FA Cup.
RB: James Justin - the talented youngster has no real path to the first team at the moment, but has impressed at every opportunity and deserves another.
CB: Wes Morgan - the captain is a mainstay of the 2nd team at the moment.
CB: Ryan Bennett - Rodgers has usually required one of the 1st team pair for cup games so far, but surely this is why Bennett was brought in
LB: Christian Fuchs - his calming presence seems to help this less experienced side. Is he playing for a chance in the 1st team?
DM: Hamza Choudhury - with Wilf back, Hamza returns to his regular role.
RM: Demarai Gray - Minutes outside the 2nd team have been few and far between. Every cup game now could be his last chance to prove himself in a Leicester shirt.
CM: Youri Tielemans - dropped (again) for the Canaries, Youri should be fine to provide the bulk of our midfield creativity.
CM: Dennis Praet - The Belgian pair will both be fighting for that 1st team place. Let’s not throw Matty James in for 90 yet.
LM: Marc Albrighton - has been favoured to Gray in recent weeks, but it’s also time for Albrighton to show up against lesser opposition or move on in the summer.
ST: Kelechi Iheanacho - Vardy is expected to be back for Villa, so Iheancho is free to feast in the cup, as he’s done all season.
Bench: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, James, Maddison, Barnes, Perez
