Aston Villa vs. Leicester City: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch their FA Cup match online

New, comments

Aston Villa have a new manager, but we'll have to wait to see what he does. Until then, let's entertain ourselves with the FA Cup match against Leicester City.

The season series is tied 1-1 between Aston Villa and Leicester City and at this point there is no club in football that I hate more than the Foxes. Not Hull City. Not Chelsea. Not West Bromwich Albion. Both of the first two matches ended with fewer than the full allotment of 22 players, and both showed two teams who clearly dislike each other. Aston Villa have a new manager, but Tim Sherwood won't be in charge for today's tilt, so it's the Marshalls Andy and Scott who will lead the club.

And they'd better win. Premier League play this season has been wildly disappointing, but wins over Blackpool and Bournemouth in the FA Cup have Villa on the precipice of advancing to the quarterfinals of one of the best competitions in world football. Two teams from the Championship have already advanced, and they could be joined by up to three more lower-league sides. If ever the FA Cup were winnable, it would be this year. And even if they don't win it all, they're just two wins from playing at Wembley. Come on Villa, make us proud.

So here's how you can watch. Because it's actually on TV! We'll have lineups below when they're posted and join us in the comments to talk about the match as it happens. Up the Villa!
