Conte’s men will travel to Leicester with the aim of making the FA Cup semi-final.Hoping to bounce back from Wednesday’s 3-0 loss at Barcelona, the Italian boss will likely name a strong starting eleven. This is the only silverware the Blues can win – the same goes for the Foxes.The London giant will be without both David Luiz and Ross Barkley who are out with ankle and hamstring injuries, respectively. Willy Caballero could start in goal after Courtois’ disappointing display at Camp; however, Conte could name a similar lineup to the midweek loss.Aleksander Dragovic, Christian Fuchs, Matty James and Marc Albrighton could all feature for the home side. Iheanacho may start on Sunday, but both Robert Huth and Daniel Amartey are sidelined with injuries.
