GOOD AFTERNOON FROM THE KING POWER STADIUM
Welcome to our live coverage of Leicester City versus Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
This weekend, these two clubs take a break from battling it out for a Champions League place in the top four, and instead turn their attention to the quest for silverware.
Brendan Rodgers would certainly love to add a cup to his evolution in the East Midlands, however history is against the Northern Irishman. The Foxes have lost each of their last five FA Cup quarter-finals, and haven’t reached the last four of the competition since 1982.
Meanwhile, despite only one place and one point separating these sides in the Premier League, Leicester have won just one of their last 25 meetings with Manchester United, and none of the last 13.
The hosts will be without Ricardo Pereira, who is struggling with a hamstring strain, but Dennis Praet is back in contention after ten weeks out with a similar injury.
Manchester United have already enjoyed one cup success this week following their 1-0 victory at AC Milan in the Europa League on Thursday.
Paul Pogba marked his return to fitness with the winning goal at the San Siro, and his rehabilitation may well continue with a starting spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side here.
However, Marcus Rashford was taken off in Italy as a precaution, and neither Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial are considered fully fit, which may mean a shortage of attacking options for the visitors as they plot to reach what would be a record 31st FA Cup semi-final.
Southampton, Manchester City and Chelsea have already made it through to the final four, who will join them?
We’ll have confirmation of today’s starting line-ups shortly as well as more build-up ahead of kick-off at 5pm.
