A number of former foxes are of course in action this weekend in the FA Cup, some are out there today playing, others was in action earlier in the weekend.
Riyad Mahrez is ready for a EFL cup final, and are also on track with Man City in the FA Cup winning comfortably 5-0 at home to Burnley. Chris Wood was a late sub for Burnley, with Ben Mee in the Clarets squad, but not being used.

Michael Keane was among the Everton players being smashed out of the FA Cup by Millwall, scoring a late winner, in the 3-2 match. Martyn Waghorn and David Nugent both played for Derby in their 1-0 win away to Accrington Stanley, Waghorn scored the winner.

Oliver Norburn had one assist in the clash between Shrewsbury and Wolves, a game that ended in a 2-2 draw, great achievement from the League 1 side, now playing a difficult replay at Molineux to settle this.

Anthony Knockaert played from start for Brighton against 2nd tier West Bromwich, the game ending in a 0-0 draw. Daniel Iversen was in goal for Oldham against Doncaster, but sadly the FA Cup adventure stopped, losing 2-1.

No former foxes were in action between Middlesbrough and Newport, but the Welsh team managed another heroic act, drawing away against Boro, 1-1, scoring the equalizer well into stoppage time of the game.

Former loan fox Jesse Lingard will be happy with his performance at The Emirates, winning 3-1 away. Tom Cleverley is still in the competition with Watford, winning, and Tottenham is gone, Harry Kane no longer part of the FA Cup, with former fox Jeff Schlupp into the 5th round after a 2-0 win against the Spurs.

So to sum it up, Derby with Tom Lawrence, Martyn Waghorn and David Nugent are through to the next round. Shrewsbury and Norburn must believe in miracles as they go for a replay at Molinuex. Knockaert and Mahrez are both still in it.

Chelsea take on Sheffield Wednesday later today and will hopefully get through, with both Drinkwater and Kante hopefully still in the run for Wembley.
