On Day two at Wembley Stadium, Leicester takes on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s boys Southampton in the FA Cup Semifinals.
The two will battle for a slot in the Cup finals against Chelsea after the Blues qualified on Saturday. Chelsea saw off Pep Guardiola’s side Manchester City 1-0 to end the Spanish Quadruple bid.
Ahead of the Cup tier atmosphere at Wembley, there have been talks of how the two teams are lined up. The Foxes misses injured Harvey Barnes but has received a boost by the return of Caglar Soyuncu and Cengiz Under.
Also, James Maddison, Ayoze Perez, and Hamza Choudhury have finished their disciplinary matter and are lined up for a return. After Leicester City knocked Manchester United to book the semifinals they will certainly push for the finals.
Lei could potentially line up in a (3-4-1-2) as follows:
Kasper Schmeichel; Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Caglar Soyuncu; Ricardo Pereira, Youri Tielemans, Wilfried N’didi, Timothy Castagne; James Maddison; Kelechi Iheanacho, Jamie Vardy
While Southampton plays a strong pressing game that keeps the space between the lines tight, they will probably cause Leicester problems.
The Saints has everyone available as last weekend, although striker Michael Obafemi has returned to training after a lengthy lay-off. However, the Soton boss Hasenhuttl may make some changes to his starting line-up.
Should there be no Changes we could see a starting Lineup as follows;
Fraser Forster; Kyle Walker-Peters, Jan Bednarek, Jannik Vestergaard, Ryan Bertrand; James Ward-Prowse, Ibrahima Diallo; Stuart Armstrong, Moussa Djenepo; Danny Ings, Che Adams
Meanwhile, Leicester Captain Jonny Evans is hoping he can add the FA Cup medal to his name this season. Evans believes defeating Southampton today to reach the FA Cup final would be a giant step.
“Hopefully, that’s what I’d like to do, to be able to achieve something with Leicester. That’s the plan for the club. Always being in there, always be there knocking on the door getting to finals, and really putting the club in a position where we can win things. And leave a legacy,” Jonny Evans said.
