Leicester are currently bottom of the Premier League but they have been in fine form in the famous cup competition, beating Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur already.
As a result, a trip to Villa Park should not hold a great deal of fear for them, with Paul Lambert’s side struggling to score and falling into the bottom three themselves this week.
This competition is an escape from the norm for both clubs and it will be interesting to see who wants it the most with Leicester showing against Tottenham that they are willing to fight until the last kick of the game.
Leicester are without the injured Kasper Schmeichel and Chris Wood while defender Matthew Upson is a doubt with a knock.
Below is the side we predict Leicester will start with against Villa, including six changes from the side that kicked off against Arsenal.
Predicted Leicester City starting line-up: Schwarzer, Simpson, Morgan, Moore, De Laet, Vardy, King, Drinkwater, Schlupp, Kramaric, Ulloa
