Leicester City have been slow off the blocks in the Premier League this season, currently sitting precariously in the relegation zone after a winless start, placing a somewhat heavy emphasis on this trip to Stockport County as Brendan Rodgers goes in search of a confidence-boosting win to build some momentum.

The Foxes let slip a 2-0 lead to Brentford on matchday one before falling to Arsenal and Southampton, and while Rodgers may have one eye on Saturday’s 3pm to Chelsea, he knows all about the importance of a strong cup run, having famously lifted the FA Cup with the East Midlands club in 2021.

Stockport County are currently floundering near the foot of the League Two table, but manager Dave Challinor will be relishing this match-up against elite opposition, and if anyone can produce a moment of magic, it’s him, having guided the club back into the EFL after an 11-year absence last season.

Stockport County vs Leicester City match stats

Patson Daka may view this match as a chance to really showcase his worth and thrust his name into the forefront of Rodger’s plans. The 31-capped Zambia international moved to Leicester last summer from Red Bull Salzburg with a strong reputation as a prolific goal-getter, and while he did manage to net 11 times in 2021/22, most of those came in cup competitions. In fact, over 50 per cent of Daka’s overall tally came in the cups and with the 23-year-old once again playing second fiddle to Jamie Vardy in the Premier League this term, he will likely be afforded a starting berth in midweek, with Tuesday’s trip to Edgeley Park a real opportunity for him to build some confidence and further clamour from fans for him to be in the first team week in, week out.
