Leicester: Foxes are hunting trophy glory - King

After an impressive display against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup, the FC panel assess Lucas Perez's role at Arsenal.

English football champions Leicester City's midfielder Andy King has said that having got a taste of silverware, the club wants to win more.

"They showed the will to win - the will to go through to the next round".

It was Cesc Fabregas who ended up the hero, as he struck twice in extra time - the first after a lovely Eden Hazard flick and the second with a glorious volley. Chelsea struggled to generate chances against Swansea City and Liverpool. Lifeline for Chelsea. Morgan loses Cahill at the far post to power a header into the net from a right-wing corner. Sent off: Wasilewski 90. But this does not mean that Antonio Conte should sacrifice Fabregas' offensive contributions at the clumsy feet of Nemanja Matic. "But Fabregas scored twice again and it was very hard for us".

Chelsea have kept just one clean sheet in their last 14 games in all competitions.

Leicester didn't have to bother with first or second round opponents, as they were given a bye into the third round.

Within four minutes of the restart Chelsea were level. His thoughtless dismissal severely reduced Leicester's chances of stemming the tide as the tie entered extra-time; it would be a surprise if he was seen in the club's colours again.

"Once you get a taste of silverware like we did past year, we nearly want to get as much as possible", he said on Monday.

Ranieri urged fans to harbour no ill will over Kante's decision to quit Leicester.

In the end, this defeat is hardly a disaster for Leicester.

Schlupp was a key member of Claudio Ranieri's side which conquered England last season.

Left winger: Pedro RodriguezPedro has been a fringe player at Chelsea since his move from Barcelona and things haven't changed much under Conte. You never know when you start what the result will be because anything could happen in the Premier League.

Chelsea brought it entirely on themselves and the sequence did little to suggest that their defensive resources are cut out to repel quality opponents.

"We lost two unsafe men, [David] Luiz on the first post and Gary Cahill at the back post".

A chastening half for Chelsea's defence ended on a high - Cahill heading over the line, with Luiz charging into Danny Drinkwater's clearance to make sure. Pedro's clearance was desperately poor, Andy King took the ball on his chest and as the Chelsea defence charged out, the Wales worldwide cleverly lifted it into the path of Okazaki. Leicester threw on Jamie Vardy and two of the deadliest strikers in the Premier league were in a shoot-out - only for Fabregas to end the late hero.

At this point Leicester, full of verve and invention, simply looked too sharp and quick for Conte's side.

Cahill added: "The timing of my goal was important".

"I am pleased for him because he showed me in this period a great attitude in training and when I've called on him to come on during games".
