Brendan Rodgers’ team will resume their campaign at Stadium MK on Tuesday. Leicester (opens in new tab) made a dismal start to the season and sat bottom of the Premier League table by mid-October. At one point, Rodgers was rumored to be one game away from being sacked.
But before the break for the 2022 World Cup, Leicester began to turn things around. A run of four wins in five Premier League games took them out of the relegation zone and into mid-table.
The Foxes also booked their place in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, helping Stockport County go past penalties before beating Newport County 3–0. They will now be looking for a spot in the quarter-finals for the fifth time in the past six seasons.
Standing in the way are Milton Keynes Dons, who beat Sutton United, Watford and Morecambe to reach the fourth round, which they had not achieved since 2014/15.
This has also been a tough season for MK, who find themselves in the League One relegation zone after 21 games. They fired their manager Liam Manning last week, with Dean Lewington currently in charge.
One thing that potentially favors MK is the fact that they have played no less than seven competitive games since Leicester were last in action. That could give them an edge in terms of match sharpness, although the Foxes will no doubt be fresher.
James Maddison, Danny Ward, Youri Tielemans, Timothy Castagne, Wout Faes, Daniel Amartey and Papy Mendy all attended the World Cup, but all seven players should be available for selection as none of their countries progressed past the quarter-finals.
Meanwhile, defensive quartet Ryan Bertrand, James Justin, Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu are unavailable due to injury.

Kickoff and channel
The kick-off is over 7.45 pm Dutch time On Tuesday December 20 and the match is not shown in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.
If you’re abroad for a round of Carabao Cup action, your domestic on-demand services are annoyingly down – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You’ll be blocked from watching it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to see the action without resorting to pirated feeds found on Reddit.
But help is available. To get around that, all you need to do is purchase a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t find out where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information that passes between them is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
