Everyone says the FA Cup has lost its magic because the bigger sides don’t play their strongest sides, but Leicester City proved that game management is the key. Claude Puel has taken a lot of unfair criticism since replacing Craig Shakespeare at the helm earlier in the season, and he was again mocked for his team selection in the last round. Some of the big names were not involved, but that didn’t stop Leicester crushing Peterborough 5-1 in the fourth round.

Puel has shown himself to be an honourable man and a real calming influence on the club, perfect for steadying what has been an incredibly turbulent ship over the past year or so. He proved his strengths by the way he managed the incredibly awkward Riyad Mahrez situation after the Algerian’s move to Manchester City fell through; he refused to train let alone play, but has since been reintegrated into the squad with minimal fuss and could feature on Friday night against Sheffield United. Though the Blades have enjoyed a good season in the Championship, there should be no upset here.

Form

The last six games have been a bit of a mixed bag for Leicester; they will be looking to bounce back from a humiliating defeat at Manchester City, but they will equally take confidence from their performance against Peterborough.

Sheffield United are just three points off the playoffs after a great win over Leeds at the weekend and reached the FA Cup fourth round by beating Preston.
