Leicester City vs Chelsea: FA Cup Prediction Team News, Line-Ups

Chelsea have no time to dwell on Champions League exit as they travel to Leicester City looking to secure a place in the FA Cup semi-finals.
A valiant display in Barcelona counted for nothing as Lionel Messi downed Antonio Conte & Co. at Camp Nou in midweek.

Now it is to the King Power Stadium for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, a stage familiar to the Blues but Leicester have not made the last four since 1982.

Start time
Leicester City host Chelsea at King Power Stadium with kick-off scheduled for 5.30pm on Sunday, March 18.

TV and live online coverage
The match will be shown live on BBC One, with coverage starting from 4.05pm. Viewers based in the UK will able to stream the match online via BBC iPlayer.

You can follow all the build-up and action from 3.30pm with Standard Sport.

Team news
Antonio Conte is poised to pick his first-choice line-up.

Conte has rotated his options in previous rounds and could yet choose Willy Caballero as goalkeeper after Thibaut Courtois was twice beaten through the legs by Lionel Messi in Wednesday's loss at Barcelona.

Defender David Luiz (ankle) and midfielder Ross Barkley (hamstring) are out.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Drinkwater, Kante, Morata, Hazard, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Giroud, Zappacosta, Willian, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Palmieri, Scott, Eduardo, Ampadu, Sterling, Hudson-Odoi.

Leicester boss Claude Puel is expected to have an unchanged squad.

Daniel Amartey will not return from his hamstring injury until after the international break, while Robert Huth continues to work his way back from the ankle problem that has blighted his campaign.

Kelechi Iheanacho will hope to play, while the likes of Aleksander Dragovic, Christian Fuchs, Matty James and Marc Albrighton could also come into contention for recalls.

Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Hamer, Jakupovic, Maguire, Morgan, Fuchs, Simpson, Chilwell, Benalouane, Dragovic, James, Albrighton, Gray, Silva, Ndidi, Iborra, Choudhury, Vardy, Iheanacho, Diabate, Okazaki.

Predicted line-ups
Leicester City starting XI: Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Chilwell; Gray, Iborra, Ndidi, Mahrez; Iheanacho, Vardy

Chelsea starting XI: Caballero; Rudiger, Christensen, Cahill; Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Fabregas, Emerson; Pedro, Morata, Hazard
