Leicester v Southampton: FA Cup semi-final preview


The pressure is on Leicester as they hope to reach the FA Cup final for the first time since 1969. Collectively the team need to get back on track after last week’s Premier League defeat to West Ham; and individuals such as James Maddison and Ayoze Pérez, who were dropped for that match after breaching Covid guidelines, have more reason than most to atone. Still, at least Leicester are battling to qualify for the Champions League too; the FA Cup is the only hope Southampton have of salvaging joy from a drab season. Paul Doyle
