Leicester’s Premier League quality to tell
Leicester City are really purring at present, and Brendan Rodgers’s flying Foxes look favourites to maintain their momentum with a victory at Brentford in Sunday’s Fourth Round FA Cup tie in West London.
Rodgers went with a strong team in the competition’s previous round, when a near full-strength Foxes side put four goals without reply past another Championship host in Stoke City.
Promotion hopefuls Brentford are a more formidable outfit than their second-tier counterparts, though a Leicester team that has lost just once in 11 assignments since early December should still prove too tough a nut to crack for the Bees.
Sunday’s skirmish is a carbon copy of last season’s Fourth Round tussle between the teams, when a 4th minute Kelechi Iheanacho effort was enough for Leicester to claim the win, and we see history repeating itself when the side reconvene almost exactly a year later this weekend.
Brentford are unbeaten at home since October, but even though they have already taken two Premier League scalps on their own patch in the EFL Cup this term, a date with Leicester represents a massive step up in quality from meetings with Fulham and Newcastle.
Leicester are on a role, and with a powerful head of steam pushing them on, the Foxes are favoured to win on Sunday, while our 2-0 correct score prediction tips City to notch a brace for the sixth time in eight fixtures.
