Leicester start as favourites against Wigan in an FA Cup fixture at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes are challenging at the top end of the Premier League and are backed to ease past Wigan who are in relegation trouble in the EFL Championship.

Leicester Form


Leicester have been solid in the EPL this season and are second on the table. Given their impressive showing this term, they will view the FA Cup as a genuine chance to claim some silverware.

The Foxes’ campaign has been driven by their home form having suffered just one defeat at the King Power Stadium this season. Brendan Rodgers’ men have won seven of their last nine home matches including victories against Tottenham, Arsenal and Everton.

Leicester have been excellent going forward this season with a 9-0 victory at Southampton among their results. They also won 3-0 at Newcastle on New Year’s Day.

Leicester News


Leicester are gunning for a Champions League place and are likely to make changes to the team in a bid to keep their players fresh. The likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray are likely to be handed starts on Saturday.

Wigan Form


Wigan have plenty of problems at the moment and are currently in the relegation zone on the EFL Championship table having claimed just two wins in their last 16 matches.

The Latics are bad travellers and only just picked up their first away win of the season in midweek with a 3-2 win at Birmingham.

Wigan News


Kieffer Moore and centre back Charlie Mulgrew are doubtful for the trip to the King Power Stadium with both men currently nursing injuries. Wigan have an otherwise fully fit squad for Saturday’s match.

Leicester vs Wigan Head to Head


Leicester and Wigan have one win each with two draws from four previous matches. The last meeting between both teams at the King Power Stadium was a Championship fixture which ended 2-0 in favour of the Foxes with Luke Moore and David Nugent getting the goals. 

Leicester vs Wigan Betting Odds 


Leicester are short priced at 1.12 for a win with a draw valued at 9.00 while a victory for Wigan is set at odds of 15.00. Leicester earned a 2-0 victory the last time they faced Wigan and are prices at 2.20 for a similar outcome while a -2 handicap is offered at odds of 1.83 at bet365.

Leicester vs Wigan Match Up


Irrespective of who starts for Leicester, they should be too strong on Saturday. The likes of Kelechi Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray have all impressed in recent weeks and should get the better of the Wigan backline.

Aside from their problems at the back, Wigan have also struggled in attack this season with Joe Garner scoring just two goals this season. With Gavin Massey still seeking his first goal of the season, the Latics are not expected to get any joy at the King Power Stadium.
