The East Midlands outfit are in good form and will look to use it to good effect against their visitors from Staffordshire this weekend

Leicester City and Stoke City lock horns at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League at lunchtime on Saturday.

The Foxes booked a place in the FA Cup quarter finals last weekend thanks to a 1-0 win over Sheffield United courtesy of Jamie Vardy’s 66th minute strike.

Claude Puel’s men still maintain eighth place on the log and are clear favourites to win on their turf at odds of (1.72) with Bet365.

The Potters were not involved in cup action but could only draw with Brighton and Hove Albion in their last league outing which sees them languish in 19th place, two points from safety.

The same betting firm has tagged Paul Lambert’s side as the underdogs at odds of (5.00).

Both teams played out to a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture at the Bet365 stadium and its (3.50) for it to go that way again.

Leicester have lost only one of their last seven league meetings with Stoke and look good to avoid defeat at odds of (1.18).

The Potters have won just twice in their last 29 visits to East Midlands in all competitions and are almost certain to concede at odds of (1.14).

The Foxes have won five of their last eight top-flight matches under Puel’s watch and are offered at (1.36) to win either half.

Jamie Vardy has scored in three of his last five Premier League apperances against Stoke and is tipped to score first at (4.50) and (2.05) anytime with Bet365.

Nigeria’s very own Wilfred Ndidi has attempted most shots (34) in the league without finding the back of the net. Punters who are willing to take a massive risk can back the former Genk man to score anytime at (6.50).
