Walsall’s impressive run that has seen them win nine of their last 12 games across all competitions, has seen them move up to 11th in League Two and progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup for just the second time in the last 17 seasons. In their way of a first fifth round appearance in 20 years is 2020/21 winners Leicester City, who are hoping to put their recent poor run of form in the league behind them.

The Foxes have picked up just one point from a possible 15 in their last five Premier League matches, with that coming last time out against Brighton, after Evan Ferguson scored a late equaliser to earn the Seagulls a point at the King Power. Brendan Rodger’s future is continued to be talked about and he will be hoping a cup run will go some way to building his reputation back up.

Walsall vs Leicester match stats

Kelechi Iheanacho is Leicester’s go to striker in the FA Cup, with the Nigerian scoring six goals in his last six games in the competition, including the only goal of the game in their win over Gillingham in the third round.

Struggling for game time in the league, Iheancho was terrific in Leicester’s run to winning the trophy back in 2020/21, scoring a last-minute winner against Brighton in the fifth round, finding the back of the net twice in the quarter-final win over Manchester United, before scoring the only goal of the game in the semi-final against Southampton to send his side to the final. His 16 goals in 22 FA Cup appearances has seen him overtake Didier Drogba to become the highest-scoring African in the competition’s history. 

Leicester have won eight games across all competitions this season, with all eight games being won to nil. The Foxes have won five of their last eight on the road, having lost each of their first five Premier League away games.
