High flying Leicester City gets a taste of the FA Cup this weekend as they travel to take on Championship side Stoke City. The match schedules for Saturday at Bet365 Stadium with a kickoff at 6 pm.

The Foxes make their trip while sitting third in the Premier League after an impressive start of the season. Their opponents are currently sitting eight on the Championship table.

Leicester holds a four unbeaten match streak and enters this match on the back of a 2-1 win against Newcastle United. The victory came with Liverpool’s shocking loss to Southampton, leaving the Foxes with one point off the top spot.

Brendan Rodgers seems keen to make up for last season’s mishap where the side lost a spot in the Champions League on the final day against Manchester United. However, the side is well on their way for their third Europa League draw this decade.
