While many Foxes fans will feel aggrieved at the performance of the officials in Rome, Jose Mourinho‘s cup-winning mentality proved too difficult for Leicester to overcome at the Stadio Olimpico, with the Giallorossi’s English hero Tammy Abraham propelling his side to the showpiece event.
Following a 1-1 draw in the first leg at the King Power, Abraham’s bullet header flew past Kasper Schmeichel into the back of the net with 11 minutes gone to condemn Brendan Rodgers‘s men to a miserable journey back home, as Roma set up a showpiece meeting with Dutch giants Feyenoord.
Leicester came through the second-leg loss to Roma unscathed but are still working without long-term absentees Ryan Bertrand and Wilfred Ndidi, while Jamie Vardy‘s fitness will also need to be assessed.
The games are still coming thick and fast for the Foxes, so Rodgers should ring the changes for Sunday as Timothy Castagne and Caglar Soyuncu aim to earn recalls to the backline.
Kelechi Iheanacho may start up top with Vardy likely being consigned to the bench after playing the full 90 against Roma, and there could be a spot for Boubakary Soumare in the middle after Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall‘s recent injury woes.
Meanwhile, Everton were handed a slight scare when Richarlison had to be taken off in the dying embers of the win over Chelsea, but the Brazilian was merely suffering from cramp and will be fine for Sunday assuming he can also shake off a sore ankle. Andre Gomes is also back in the visitors’ squad.
The same cannot be said for Ben Godfrey, Nathan Patterson and Andros Townsend, though, while Lampard still has concerns over Donny van de Beek‘s groin problem.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin was an unused substitute in the win over Chelsea and may be restricted to watching from the dugout here as well, with Lampard surely seeing no reason to change a side that took down the European champions.
Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Pereira, Soyuncu, Fofana, Castagne; Tielemans, Soumare; Albrighton, Maddison, Barnes; Iheanacho
Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Mina; Iwobi, Delph, Doucoure, Mykolenko; Gordon, Richarlison, Gray

It has not been too much of a surprise to see Leicester’s domestic fortunes suffer a nosedive amid their continental quest, but it is now six games without success in all tournaments for the Foxes, who went down 3-1 to Tottenham Hotspur in their most recent Premier League battle.
It would take a remarkable set of circumstances for the 11th-placed Foxes to break into the top seven now, as a 10-point chasm separates them from West Ham United, although they do boast games in hand on almost all of the teams around them.
However, Rodgers’s side will seemingly be condemned to a season without European football next term, but they do bring a 10-game unbeaten home run into Sunday’s clash – winning three of their last four on their own turf in the Premier League.
