Leicester City welcome Manchester United to the King Power Stadium this afternoon as the two Premier League clubs bid for a place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
The tie sees the top flight’s second-placed side – Man United – take on the division’s third-placed team in Brendan Rodger’s Foxes, who enter this fixture on the back of a 5-0 thrashing of bottom Sheffield United in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last 14 games across all competitions.
Leicester are four-time runners-up in the FA Cup, though their last trip to the final of the competition came over 50 years ago, while United are 12-time champions of the tournament, with their last title achieved at the end of the 2015/16 season. Whoever emerges victorious from today’s quarter-final will join fellow Premier League teams Man City and Southampton in the final four after City beat Everton 2-0 yesterday and the Saints saw off Bournemouth 3-0. In fact, the semi-finals will both be all-Premier League affairs, with Chelsea having overcome Sheffield United 2-0 earlier this afternoon to book their spot in the penultimate round of the competition.
