Walsall vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Leicester have won 11 of their last 13 FA Cup ties, eight of them without conceding.
  • Walsall have lost three of their lats four home FA Cup games.
  • Kelechi Iheanacho has scored 16 goals in his last 22 games in the competition.

Leicester can keep cup run going

Leicester should win Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round clash at Poundland Bescot Stadium and could even keep a rare clean sheet against a weakened Walsall line-up.

Mike Flynn’s Saddlers are without some regulars for this visit of the Premier League Foxes and, despite their recent good form, are unlikely to bridge the quality gap.

New signing Jamille Matt is cup-tied because he played for Forest Green Rovers in the earlier rounds of the competition while centre-back Manny Monthe is suspended after collecting for two yellow cards against Tranmere in the previous round.

Foxes may rely on Nigerian striker 

Leicester could give new boy Victor Kristiansen his debut at left-back and some of the other fringe players who faced Gillingham in the third round could feature again – including Kelechi Iheanacho.

The Nigerian has become something of a specialist goalscorer in cup competitions and can boast an incredible tally of 16 strikes in his last 22 FA Cup outings, including six in his last six. He is worth backing as an anytime goalscorer at odds of around 11/8 while the win to nil is also on the table given Leicester’s record of eight clean sheets in their last 13 FA Cup ties.

A 2-0 correct score play is preferred because, although the Foxes struggled to did not score more than once at struggling Gillingham in round three, they had chances to get two or three on a difficult, bobbly pitch.
