Fleetwood face Leicester City in the FA Cup 3rd round fixture on Saturday. It has been called the “The Vardy Derby” by some fans as Jamie Vardy scored 31 goals in 36 games to help Fleetwood qualify for the Football League before his move to Leicester City. Unfortunately, Jamie Vardy won’t be fit enough to start the game but hopefully we will see him as a substitute during the game.
Leicester Expected Starting Lineup against Fleetwood
4-2-3-1 Formation: Jakupovic| Amartey Maguire Dragovic Chillwell | Ndidi Silva |Gray Okazaki Albrighton | Slimani
Leicester who have never won the FA Cup will be looking to mount a strong challenge to the trophy. They are in comfortable position in the league now and can prioritise the cup whenever required. Also they have ability to beat the big teams with their counter attacking style particularly being effective against the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal. The FA Cup also offers Leicester an opportunity to play in Europe next season. Leicester with their talent and style certainly have the potential go to the final stages of the Europa League.
