Leicester City will be looking to extend their lead in the FA Cup quarter-finals this week as they welcome home Brighton. The match schedules for Wednesday at King Power Stadium with kickoff at 1030 pm.
In their most recent fixture, the hosts played out a goalless stalemate with Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Brighton took a point away against Burnley.
Not even the highly anticipated return of Jamie Vardy could save Leicester City last time at Molineux. The side ended in a 0-0 draw while dropping points behind Manchester City in their Premier League title race.
The Foxes are currently with only one win in their last four Premier League matches. In the table standings, they now sit third with seven points behind league leaders Leicester City. Their recent underperforming spell could spell havoc in their title race bid.
However, the hopefuls might depend on Jamie Vardy’s return to spell a good run of form in their next upcoming fixtures. Two trips to Championship side Stoke City and Brentford saw the side score seven goals while conceding only one in their pair of victories.
Robert Sanchez gave Brighton their important win against Burnley at Turf Moor in their last outing. The Seagulls are currently unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches, winning three and drawing in two.
