com. PreviewVilla have their work cut out for them beating Leicester in midweek despite the home advantage, though several key absences in the away dugout could help their chances. Vardy started the first leg but failed to find the back of the net, and it was up to Iheanacho to keep the scoreline level after Villa right-back Frederic Guilbert got the breakthrough:Former England international Vardy pulled up with what appeared to be a hamstring issue during Wednesday's 4-1 win against West Ham United, with fears growing for the rest of his campaign. Rodgers has since allayed those fears and told reporters Vardy's injury is "not as serious" as first thought, suggesting there's a chance he'll take part in the semi-final fixture.
Brendan Rodgers' men look like favourites to edge fellow Premier League outfit Villa, though Dean Smith's side will be tough to beat. The winner of this fixture will advance to face either Manchester City or Manchester United in the Wembley Stadium final on March 1. Date: Tuesday, January 28Time: 7:45 p. m. GMT/2:45 p.
