Kelechi Iheanacho will hope to make his 10th Carabao Cup appearance when Leicester City host Aston Villa at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.
The Foxes are looking to reach their first final since 2000, when they won the competition. They ran out comfortable 4-1 winners at Villa Park, when the two sides met in the Premier League in December.
Iheanacho, an unused substitute in Leicester City’s 2-0 triumph over Wigan Athletic last weekend, could be on the bench yet again, with the expected return of Jamie Vardy to the starting line-up.
The 23-year-old, who won the Carabao Cup in 2016 with Manchester City, has scored five goals in seven appearances this season for the Foxes. He could take his tally in the Carabao Cup to seven if he finds the back of the net in the encounter.
His compatriot, Wilfred Ndidi, is expected to make his sixth start (seventh appearance overall in the competition) when the Foxes take on Villa. So far this season, Ndidi has scored twice in 24 games.
