Leicester City host Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-finals with the Foxes looking to progress to the semi-finals for the first time since 1982. 

The Foxes have only faced Manchester United twice in the competition losing both including the 1963 final. 

Brendan Rodgers has spoken highly about the competition previously as it is a competition he would very much like to win. 

Manchester United have knocked out some big teams in the FA cup this season such as Liverpool and West Ham United. 

The Red Devils have not had the best luck in semi-finals losing three last season and then once more, losing against Manchester City in the League Cup this term.

Team News

Leicester will be without Ricardo Periera who has a minor problem with his hamstring. Dennis Praet will be available to return to action after recovering from a 10-week absence with a hamstring injury of his own. 

Marcus Rashford is a doubt after being taken off against AC Milan on Thursday with an unspecified "twinge".  Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial also remain doubts for the fixture.

Eric Bailly will be assessed before a decision is made.

Predicted Line-Ups

Leicester City: Schmeichel; Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas, Ndidi, Tielemans, Perez, Iheanacho, Vardy. 

Manchester United: Henderson, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, Mctominay, Matic, James, Bruno, Pogba, Greenwood.

Ones to watch

Kelechi Iheancho

The Nigerian has been in superb form of late scoring five in his last three games. Iheanacho scored a hat-trick in his last match vs Sheffield United demonstrating his ability in front of goal. 

He has formed a great partnership with Jamie Vardy, with Iheanacho liking to drop a little deeper allowing Vardy to lead the line. 

The confidence displayed in front of goal from the striker in recent weeks has been so refreshing to see for Leicester fans especially with the injuries to Harvey Barnes and James Maddison.

Paul Pogba

The returning Paul Pogba came back into the side vs AC Milan on Thursday night in the Europa League, scoring the winner, sending United through to the last 8 of the competition

The midfielder showed his class as he came on as a super sub to win the tie for the red devils. 

Pogba, is a major threat for Brendan Rodgers' men as he can create goals out of nothing.

The Frenchman has superb qualities running with ball and picking out incisive passes as demonstrated a few years back at the King Power stadium, when he picked out Marcus Rashford with a delightful dink- pass to score.
