Leicester City are no more a team you can bank on, with two of their key players Riyadh Maurer and Islam Slimane on international duty. The current English Champions have been in the shadows, their recent back-to-back 3-0 defeats have kept them just 5 points above the drop zone.

It only seems the foxes are only good in other tournament, they cruised through the Champions League group stage. Also they grabbed a successful 2-1 victory against Everton in the FA Cup 3rd rounds and these have relieved the manager from pressure.

In the contrary, Derby County have progressed under the new boss Steve McClaren, also fought hard to get a 2-1 win over West Brom in 3rd round. They have managed 9 wins in their last 13 league games which shows big signs of improvement.

Derby have been strong at home this season and this could have an effect in the game against Leicester that have struggled on the road this season.

Derby County vs Leicester City: Prediction

Derby fans can brag about their good home form, they ar unbeaten at home since October. However this doesn’t make them favorites in this game, but considering the fact the Mahrez and Slimani will be missing, the game will be tough for the foxes.

This may sound hatch to Leicester fans, but the foxes could be set for an FA Cup exit. We don’t see them winning this game as we expect a win or draw from their host.
