The rivalry between East Midlands sides Derby County and Leicester City is renewed this evening when the sides collide in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
Going on recent form, this could prove to be a Championship fixture next season with the Foxes failing emphatically in their defence of the Premier League title. Claudio Ranieri’s side have leaked no less than six goals in two Premier League games with none in reply and as such they will be eager to bounce back by knocking their local rivals out of the FA Cup tonight.
There is little doubt that Leicester City are a pale shadow of the side which stormed to the Premier League title in 2016 with games to spare and whilst there may be numerous reasons for their downfall this season, there is no doubt that they are pretty much out of their depth in the Premier League.
The Foxes are showing little signs of improvement or encouragement and this is therefore a great time for Championship side Derby County to be facing them. The Rams have been closing in on the top six and boss Steve McClaren will be desperate to steer them into the Premier League following some disappointments in recent seasons.
