Peterborough v Leicester City Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
January 24, 2018
London Road - FA Cup
Premier League side Leicester City travel to Peterborough United of League One for an East Midlands derby in the FA Cup fourth round.
The two last played each other in the 2012-13 season in the Championship, with both sides winning at home during that campaign.
The Foxes last win at London road came via a 2-1 win in 2010, with goals from Steve Howard and long serving midfielder Andy King.
Peterborough manager Grant McCann has no injury concerns ahead of Leicester's visit, with some Premier League experience in his squad in the shape of ex Blackpool defender Neil Ardley and former Newcastle man Steven Taylor.
Leicester manager Claude Puel may choose to rest some of his big guns or this game, with fringe players including Kelechi Ihenacho, Adrien Silva and Islam Slimani all set to start.
Danny Simpson and Robert Huth could return from injury, but Wes Morgan is unlikely to be risked.
Peterborough v Leicester City Preview and Predicitons
The Posh have stuttered in recent weeks, winning just one of their last four games in League One ahead of this game. They have beaten Tranmere Rovers, Woking and Championship side Aston Villa so far in the FA Cup this season.
Leicester beat Fleetwood in a third round replay, and face Peterborough unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions ahead of the trip to Peterborough.
Puel may rest a few players here, but given their rise in form in the Premier League he has no fears of relegation, and a cup run could be a real boost.
Leicester should have too much for Peterborough in this one, and an away win is priced at 4/7.
The Foxes have plenty of goals in their ranks, with seven goals in their last five games, with Peterborough scoring eight in the same number of games.
An over 2.5 goals bet, priced at 4/6 looks a good option.
Leicester City to win 3-1 at 11/1
Leicester are in good form,and even if Riyad Mahrez, Jamie Vardy and others are rested they will still have the firepower available to win this comfortably and move into the fifth round.
Islam Slimani to score first at 7/2
The Algerian international is a threat as a back up striker, and he has four goals in cup competitions already this season. He has plenty of pace and is a threat in the air.
