THE TEAM NEWS
- Leicester will fancy their chances of lifting silverware this year and might not have a better opportunity to do so than in the League Cup.
- Jamie Vardy is back in training for the Foxes and is expected to lead the line after sitting out his side's last three matches.
Leicester have very few major injury issues at present and Brendan Rodgers is expected to name his strongest possible side.
Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Maddison, Tielemans, Barnes; Vardy
Unavailable: James (Injured), Morgan (Injured), Benkovic (Injured)
- Aston Villa will have a tougher task on their hands than in the last round after they dumped Liverpool's youngsters out of the League Cup.
- Villa boss Dean Smith cited that Premier League safety was his priority this season and that showed with the team he selected in the FA Cup.
- They are still likely to name a much stronger side for this game and Anwar El Ghazi could retain his place after scoring at the weekend.
Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Nyland; Elmohamady, Engels, Mings, Taylor; Douglas Luiz, Nakamba, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Kodjia, Grealish
Unavailable: Steer (Injured), Heaton (Injured), McGinn (Injured), Wesley (Injured)
Doubtful: Targett (Injured), Davis (Injured)
Aston Villa look set to delve into the transfer market to combat some recent injury woes and this game might be seen as a distraction from their ultimate goal of retaining their place in the Premier League. That should boost Leicester's chances who are likely to claim a comfortable victory.
