Leicester head to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for an FA Cup quarter-final which should be a pretty open affair.

The Blues edged out Leeds United 3-2 in the last round of this competition and the Foxes could put up a similar challenge, although the Championship leaders head into this one with defensive concerns.

With an end-to-end game expected, we’ve picked out two goalscorers and a player to be carded in a huge 70/1 #PickYourPunt treble.

  • Moises Caicedo to be carded

#PickYourPunt @ 70/1

Enzo Fernandez to score anytime

Enzo Fernandez has arguably encapsulated Chelsea’s season with his displays this term. While he’s been inconsistent in the league, he’s stepped it up in cup games. He helped the Blues to the Carabao Cup final and he can score on Sunday to push them towards a Wembley return.

While the Argentinian has three league goals for the season, he has scored four times in the cups, netting some vital goals, including a brilliant free-kick at Aston Villa.

In 2024, he has home goals against Championship sides Preston and Middlesbrough, marking him out as a great goalscorer option against the Foxes.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to score anytime

Leicester have their own goal threat in midfield, with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall notching 10 goals from the middle of the park in the Championship this term.

The attack-minded central midfielder is good value to put on a show against the Blues, despite going a little cold of late.

This Chelsea defence offer far too much space, while the Blues are expected to have as many as five defenders ruled out for this clash.

Their usual starting four of Reece James, Beniot Badiashile, Levi Colwill and Ben Chilwell are all missing, while Thiago Silva is out of favour and Wesley Fofana remains sidelined too.

Dewsbury-Hall has already proven himself as a goalscorer this term and he can trouble this makeshift Blues back four.

Moises Caicedo to be carded

Finally, Caicedo has had a lot of focus following his huge move from Brighton, but the midfielder hasn’t been quite as bad as he’s been portrayed.

While he’s made some mistakes and looked a little hesitant at times, he’s tried his best to bring some order to the chaos of Chelsea’s midfield.

Caicedo ends up isolated too often and the defensive midfielder has been quite vulnerable of late. He heads into Sunday’s contest having been booked in five of his last nine appearances, including each of his last three matches at Stamford Bridge.

With 10 bookings across all competitions this term, Caicedo is a great option to pick up a card in this clash.

He has averaged 1.8 fouls per league game this season and this Leicester side will look to bother him, so back the Ecuadorian to pick up a booking.
