Leicester City and Manchester United are preparing to face each other in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Leicester reached the next round after having celebrated a 1-0 victory over Brighton. While United reached the quarter-finals following a 1-0 win over West Ham.

Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.

“The last time these two sides played at King Power Stadium, on 26 December, it was a cracking game that ended up 2-2.

“I’m expecting it to be quite open this time too, and I just have a feeling the Foxes will edge it.

“But, whether they win or lose this tie, both teams are on course for successful seasons. A top-four finish would make sure of that on its own – going on and winning the FA Cup would be like the cherry on the top.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-1
