Marc Albrighton insists Leicester are capable of further Champions League shocks

Marc Albrighton insists Leicester are capable of further Champions League shocks

However, Vardy restored Leicester's two-goal lead before half-time when he pounced on the loose ball after West Ham failed to clear Albrighton's corner.

"We'll be training [during the draw]".

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan sees no reason not to dream of Champions League glory.

I watched the Bournemouth highlights and was scratching my head as to why Sullivan became so annoyed rather than just irritated - plenty of teams this season have conceded a late victor.

An incident-packed match saw Sevilla's Samir Nasri sent off after clashing with Jamie Vardy before Schmeichel saved Steven N'Zonzi's penalty and the visitors' manager Jorge Sampaoli sent to the stands. "We believed we could win this game tonight and the next step is the quarter-finals".

"We need to be competitive in every game and try to win every game".

"In all those three games they looked very lively, three wins on the spin including qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League gives them a big boost".

But their sudden transformation under Craig Shakespeare raises many questions.

But it was The Foxes' Jamie Vardy who was included in the latest England squad, announced on Thursday, alongside veteran Jermain Defoe and youngster Marcus Rashford, although he has only found the back of the net twice in his last nine Premier League appearances.

Such was the euphoria surrounding their 2-0 victory over Sevilla in the last 16, their perilous position just three points above the Premier League relegation zone was forgotten, for a few hours at least.

He has now guided Leicester to victory in each of his last four games since taking over from Claudio Ranieri.

However he is staying optimistic, and why wouldn't he after the 18 months Leicester have just had.

It was a thrilling finale with West Ham looking most likely to score the next goal and they nearly did in stoppage time but for an outstanding save from Schmeichel, who somehow denied a Carroll shot from only a few yards out.

The former Manchester United winger believes that there is only a handful of the world's very best players now plying their trade in the Premier League.

Since his debut in September 2012, Andy Carroll has appeared in just 94 of West Ham's 178 Premier League matches (53%) and played just 40% of possible minutes (6472).

Craig Shakespeare has won both of his Premier League games in charge of Leicester City so far - no previous Leicester boss has won their opening three Premier League games in charge of the club.
