Foxes to send Saints marching in FA Cup semi-final
2020-21 FA Cup semi-final preview: Leicester City vs Southampton – Wembley stadium – Sunday, 18th April 2021, 18:30 hrs. BST
Leicester City and Southampton lock horns for a semi-final clash of the 2020-21 FA Cup at the Wembley stadium on Sunday, April 18th.
While Brendan Rodgers' Foxes have beaten Stoke City, Brentford, Brighton and Manchester United to reach the final four, Southampton have overcome the likes of Shrewsbury Town, Arsenal, Wolves and Bournemouth to arrive at the same stage.
As far as the Premier league goes, Leicester have come out of back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and West Ham while Southampton were thrashed by relegation candidates West Bromwich 0-3 in an away game on Monday night.

Southampton Premier League form: LWLLWL
James Maddison, Ayoze Perez and Hamza Choudhury have all returned to training after missing Leicester's defeat to West Ham owing to various injuries. It remains to be seen whether Brendan Rodgers will reward any of them with starts here. Turkish international Caglar Soyuncu could start at the back after returning from international commitments while Harvey Barnes, Cengiz Under and James Justin will remain sidelined.
Oriol Romeu , Michael Obafemi and William Smallbone form the injured list for Southampton. Che Adams, Danny Ings, James Ward-Prowse and Theo Walcott will be the main protagonists in the Saints' attack at Wembley.
Leicester City starting XI in 3-5-2 formation: Schmeichel (goal); Soyuncu, Evans, Fofana; Castagne, Prait, Ndidi, Tielemans, Pereira; Iheanacho, Vardy
Southampton starting XI in 4-4-2 formation: Forster (goal); Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Walcott, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Armstrong; SAdams, Ings
Both sides have won two games apiece from their previous four encounters one of which included a 9-0 drubbing by Leicester away at Saint Mary's stadium last season.
Nevertheless, it could be a tight affair with Leicester scraping through to the finals with a score line of 1-0 at 13/2.
