Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Leicester City will be aiming to kick off their FA Cup campaign in great manner when they take on Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon. The Foxes have slim chances of regaining the Premier League trophy, but they are definitely capable of recording a good result in the FA Cup. Claude Puel’s troops are likely to go all guns blazing at Fleetwood Town and we predict that the Premier League side will prove their worth on the field. A man to watch in the away team will be Jamie Vardy, who has been in a fine form this season. The Cod Army, on the other hand, set up a meeting with Leicester by beating the likes of Chorley and Hereford, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturday’s football match against the Foxes. Fleetwood Town sit in the bottom half of the League One standings and they are unlikely to upset the Premier League team in the FA Cup round 3.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later. The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite. Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
