Home   /   Brentford v Leicester City FA Cup Fourth Round Preview

Sunday the 23rd of January at 2:30 pm will see Leicester travel to the Brentford Community Stadium in an FA Cup fourth-round clash as the home side will be looking for another exciting cup run and will be looking to claim another scalp from the top-tier.

This is a rematch of last years third-round matchup, a tie in which Leicester were victorious thanks to an early goal from Kelechi Iheanacho. Will we see a similar outcome a year on?


Thomas Frank’s side have been in scintillating form much like the foxes, both are sitting third in their leagues. The London side have only lost one of their last 19 in all competitions with that defeat being handed to them by Tottenham in the Carabao Cup semi-final respectively.

Team News:

Brentford:

Frank’s side is to be without top scorer Ivan Toney as well as Josh Da Silva due to them receiving red cards against Tottenham and Luton Town. Giving speculation to the likely-hood that Tarique Fosu-Henry will be starting in the attacking role instead.

Charlie Goode is also expected to come in at the expense of Mads Bech Sorensen in defence.

Leicester City:

The travelling foxes will be without star man Jamie Vardy as he is set to be out for several weeks because of hip surgery he will be receiving due to a recurring issue.

Brendan Rodgers is spoilt for choice defensively as Ricardo Pereira featured briefly in the win over Chelsea in mid-week and is rumoured to start on Sunday.

Furthermore, Caglar Soyuncu is likely to start as he also works himself back into contention after injury. But they will be missing Dennis Praet as it has been confirmed that he is set to be out for around three months with a hamstring problem.
