FA Cup

Sunday, 15th February, 12:30 UK Time

Last weekend, the storm clouds gathered above the West Midlands, Neptune lined up with Jupiter and, at around 4:09pm an Aston Villa player actually scored a goal in the Premier League. Was it the dawning of a new era? No, not really, because they still lost 2-1 to Chelsea, but at least some of the gloom was lifted at Villa Park.

This week, they face Leicester City in an intriguing cup tie that will be decided by whichever poker player blinks last. Aston Villa’s last league win was against Leicester back in early December, and I have a sneaking feeling they will do it again this weekend. Foxes manager Nigel Pearson has had a strange week, to put it mildly, thanks in part to his bizarre touchline antics against Crystal Palace, and a defeat in the F.A. Cup won’t help matters.

Whichever side loses this one will at least be able to “concentrate on the league” as the old cliché goes, and given their lowly positions this might be a good thing. Villa are hovering just above the relegation zone while Leicester remain in peril. Only time will tell if the relevant managers, Nigel “The Octopus” Pearson and Paul “I’m not to blame” Lambert, will even field their strongest sides.

Aston Villa to win at home to Leicester City. Grab them at 2.40.
