The Foxes’ outrageous Premier League title win in 2016 is their only silverware since 2000, meaning Brendan Rodgers will be determined to progress through the rounds here.

Leicester are on a sketchy run of form in recent weeks without Jamie Vardy but remain third in the table.

Brighton are unbeaten in six but have failed to score more than one goal against Premier League opposition since 2nd January in a 3-3 draw with Wolves.

The Seagulls have found a way to sneak through in games, but can they cope with an explosive attacking unit such as Leicester?

Our prediction: Leicester v Brighton

Vardy’s potential return would be a major boon for Leicester. For all the talent in the feet of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, the Foxes have missed a talismanic figurehead.

Those three names are all capable of tearing teams apart and are likely to give Brighton a headache this week.

Graham Potter’s men won’t be too disappointed if they were to leave the competition at this stage, but Leicester have a real opportunity to go far here.

Our prediction: Leicester 2-1 Brighton (15/2 at bet365)
