ALBION take on the Foxes tonight, with both sides battling it out for a spot in the League Cup quarter-finals.

Ahead of Albion's Carabao Cup game against Leicester City tonight, the Argus has spoken to two leading Leicester City reporters, Geoff Peters from Talksport and Jordan Blackwell from LeicestershireLive, to get the inside track on the Foxes.

The Foxes has had a mixed start to the season, but is the tide starting to turn after the win against Brentford?

GP: "It's been a terrific week for the club, starting by seeing off Manchester United 4-2, then a 4-3 success in Moscow against Spartak and following it up by winning 2-1 at Brentford.

"Yes the start to the season has been stodgy – in terms of results and performances – but they're beginning to gel a bit more, and I think much of that is down to the return of Jonny Evans in defence.

"He's a calm influence on and off the pitch. Leicester have struggled defensively without him – not to mention Wesley Fofana and James Justin also missing because of injury, both first-choice players, as well as Wilfred N'Didi – and even though they conceded six in those three games, they've had so much more about them across the rest of the pitch."

JB: The tide started to turn with the win over Manchester United the weekend before, which was comfortably their best performance of the season, and possibly their best since as far back as March. They then managed to carry that momentum to win at Spartak Moscow and then just about scrape past Brentford in a match that was far from comfortable.

The key elements to turning the form around have been altering the formation to get Kelechi Iheanacho in the side, and Jonny Evans' return to fitness.

Will Brendan Rogers rotate the team for the cup or will he go for a strong side?

GP: "Both! He's said he'll make changes but the players he can bring in are not too shabby – the likes of Barnes, Lookman, Perez, Bertrand, Thomas, Dewsbury-Hall, Daka, Ward and Choudhury.

"It's an opportunity for some to stake their claims for the Premier League. Daka scored all four in Moscow last week. Barnes on his day has explosive pace. Lookman has been positive in his early matches on loan but maybe the new 3-4-1-2 formation doesn't suit him quite as well.

"Rodgers wants to win trophies, as proved last season with the FA Cup, and I expect he'll make a few changes for this rather than wholesale."

JB: "He will rotate, and could make as many as nine changes.

"After chopping and changing over the first two months of the campaign in a bid to find solutions to Leicester's poor form, and to give everyone a chance.

"Rodgers has been consistent in his team selection over the past three games, with nine players starting all of those wins in the past week."

So there will be changes, and players that have not been seen so much, like Ayoze Perez and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall will come into the side.

Which players should Graham Potter and Albion be most worried about in the cup game?

GP: "Daka is expected to start after Jamie Vardy picked up a slight knock at the weekend. That would've been a likely change anyway as Vardy is first choice in the Premier League."

"He'll be full of confidence. Kelechi Iheanacho has been the most improved Leicester player in 2021. He scored a lot of goals in the second half of last season and has just got himself into the starting line-up where he's proving to be a perfect foil for either Vardy or Daka.

JB: "Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman. These two have been the most unfortunate to miss out of late, with the change in formation meaning that neither has had a spot in the team.

"With Leicester possibly reverting to a back four on Wednesday, I would expect Barnes and Lookman to come back in.

"On top form, Barnes is one of the most threatening wingers in the country with the speed and directness with which he dribbles, albeit he has not quite hit his usual heights this season.

"Lookman, meanwhile, has made a really bright start, and has created chances for himself and others consistently during his minutes on the pitch.

"It's taken him a while to really find his feet at Leicester, but he's virtually undroppable right now."

Which players from Albion do you think can cause the most harm to Leicester City?

GP: Of course, it depends who Graeme Potter selects, but Neal Maupay is always a handful.

"That dramatic finish against Palace was quite spectacular, very calmly done, but we'll draw a veil over the penalty at the Amex last month when he was fouling Vestegaard. (It's okay, I'm over it...) "Yves Bissouma has obviously missed some games, so wouldn't surprise me if he gets a run out as he gets back to fitness.

"He continues to impress me, and, it seems, he's impressing a number of other clubs too. He's a real talent."

JB: "Based on last month's meeting, Leo Trossard will cause Leicester problems.

"They struggled to pick him up when he moved into the pockets of space, and his touch and passing always seemed to get Brighton moving forward into more dangerous areas.

"I was impressed too with Marc Cucurella, who looked very solid going forwards and backwards."

What is your match prediction?

GP: "I'm hoping both clubs name pretty strong sides, and we have a cracking contest, partly because I'm covering the game for talkSPORT.

"Leicester have more strength in depth but it's a cup tie, and there was nothing really between the sides in the FA Cup last season until Iheanacho capitalised on a late defensive error.

"I suspect it'll be close, maybe just a goal in it, and it wouldn't surprise me if we go to penalties.

JB: "I think it will be similar to the FA Cup tie between the two at the start of the year, a tight game with a late goal settling it.

"I'll say 1-0 to Leicester with Patson Daka to score."
