Jamie Vardy could get a belated chance to face his former club when Leicester host Fleetwood in Tuesday night’s FA Cup replay.
The England striker had to sit out the first encounter at his old stomping ground Highbury due to a groin problem, but returned to fitness for Saturday’s gutsy goalless draw at Chelsea with 10 men.
However, whether Vardy starts or not, we’re expecting the Foxes to be much sharper than when held to a goalless draw on the north-west coast.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Claude Puel made eight changes for the opening FA Cup clash, but still had some strong attacking weapons in his starting XI, including Demarai Gray, Islam Slimani and new recruit Adrien Silva.
With Shinji Okazaki, Kelechi Iheanacho and Marc Albrighton coming off the bench, it was a poor effort not to get one goal attempt on target.
However, the wind was blowing by the seaside and Fleetwood’s pitch is a bit bobbly, so Leicester should appreciate better conditions here.
City’s fringe players did well in the EFL Cup, scoring nine goals in wins over Sheffield United, Liverpool and Leeds, before only being edged out on penalties by Manchester City.
That kind of form should be strong enough to see off the Cod Army and we like 6/1 for a 3-0 home win from the Leicester vs Fleetwood odds.
A Look At Fleetwood Town’s Betting Odds
Fleetwood huffed and puffed throughout the first game and almost snatched a dramatic late winner when a deflected Ashley Hunter shot hit the post.
However, Town have never progressed beyond the third round of this competition, failing to score in two matches against Bristol City at this stage 12 months ago.
Saturday’s 2-1 success at Southend helped lift the Cod Army up to 11th in their own division, but we just feel the gulf in class will be more evident at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes beat Huddersfield 3-0 in their last Premier League fixture here and appeal at 23/20 to score at least that many goals again in our Leicester vs Fleetwood betting tips.
Chelsea 0-0 LEICESTER
