Premier League champions Leicester will turn their attentions to the FA Cup this evening when they host Derby in a fourth round replay (7.45pm kick-off).

However, both sides go into tonight’s clash having lost their last league game, with Leicester going down 3-0 at home to Manchester United to leave them 16th in the Premier League, and just a point clear of the bottom three.
