In the upcoming fixture of FA Cup, Leicester City is hosting Sheffield United in their home ground, King Power Stadium at 1:15 AM (IST). This game is going to be ballastic because it is the clash of the top two teams trying to knockout each other and qualify for the next round of FA Cup match tie. The home team is considerably the better team in this fixture because if we talk about English Premier League points table then they are ranked 8th and their opponent for this game are in the second division league of the country.
