The Foxes did have an extra game in midweek, playing out a 1-1 home draw with Aston Villa in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg. In the top flight, Leicester have taken a W7 D2 L1 record at the King Power in this campaign.

They have scored so well at home as well, the Foxes averaging 1.9 goals per home fixtures. Defensively they have still produced an average of under a goal per game as well.

Nine of the fourteen league wins that Leicester have secured this season (home and away) have been by at least a two-goal margin. 74% of their home goals have been netted in the second half of fixtures. Surprisingly, despite their good home record, Leicester have opened the scoring in only four home games.
