KICK off: 18 April 20:30
Team news: James Maddison, Hamza Choudhury and Ayoze Perez were left out of the squad against West Ham for breaching coronavirus protocols, but all three have been involved in training this week. Caglar Soyuncu may also be back in the Leicester squad on Sunday after recovering from COVID-19, possibly seeing Daniel Amartey make way from the starting lineup. Cengiz Under remains a doubt, though, while Harvey Barnes and James Justin have definitely been ruled out of contention. Kelechi Iheanacho may be the man of the moment for Leicester, but strike partner Jamie Vardy loves playing at Wembley, scoring in all three of his appearances there for Leicester. As for Southampton, they will be without Takumi Minamino as he featured in the competition for parent club Liverpool in the early stages. Michael Obafemi, Oriol Romeu and William Smallbone also remain absent for the Saints. Hasenhuttl fielded effectively his strongest side in the loss to West Brom, but the manner of the defeat will perhaps open the door for the likes of Che Adams, Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Tella. Nathan Redmond will be eager to start as he looks to build on a return of seven goals in his last six FA Cup appearances – five goals and two assists.
Prediction: Over 2,5 goals
