A place in the semi finals of the FA Cup will be at stake when Chelsea and Leicester City go head to head at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea FC have been somehow great to watch since losing to Liverpool in the EFL Cup final at the end of last month. The Blues enter this weekend's fixture with a three match unbeaten run, winning two and drawing one. While their defence is still very shaky, Mauricio Pochettino's men have been clinical in the final third recently. Chelsea fans are surely please with this because their side missed plenty of chances in the early stages of the season.

Leicester City meanwhile looked like they were going to win the Championship title with ease but they have been knocked off their perch. It started when they recorded their fifth defeat of the season against Middlesbrough. Back to back defeats followed after that and their most recent outing saw them draw 2-2 with Hull City. 

Chelsea vs Leicester City Betting Tips: Chelsea to win

The Blues struggled against a side from the Championship, Leeds United, in Round 5, needing a late goal from Conor Gallagher to secure victory, and Sunday's game is likely to take a similar pattern. But the fact that Chelsea have progressed from seven of their last eight FA Cup games against Leicester City cannot be brushed aside.

Leicester City's form has been far from perfect of late. The Foxes also have a very poor away record against Chelsea as they boast just one win from their last 13 trips to Stamford Bridge.

Leicester City team news

As far as Leicester City are concerned, Wilfred Ndidi will not be available due to injury and the likes of Ricardo Pereira, Dennis Praet and Kasey McAteer are also doubts.

Following his brace last time out, Jamie Vardy is expected to retain the responsibilities of leading the line and could be supported in the final third by Stephy Mavididi and Abdul Fatawu.
