Leicester out to deny Chelsea "last chance to win something" - Claude Puel

Leicester out to deny Chelsea

A quarter-final date with Leicester now awaits in the FA Cup, with Germany global defender Rudiger determined to end his debut season in England with tangible reward. It won't be easy because Leicester is a good team.

"I just have a feeling that they will absolutely fly at Chelsea and we know they have got the quality to beat them".

Eden Hazard will be looking to get back to form after a disappointing display in the Champions League while Pedro could be recalled in attack with Willian making way.

"They're relying on other teams to falter so the FA Cup becomes increasingly important to come out of the season with something to shout about".

"As players, we need to galvanise, show some spirit and show some togetherness again, and we need the fans behind us to make it a great atmosphere like it can be".

Having surrendered their crown to Manchester City, as well as exiting the Carabao Cup at the semi-final stage to Arsenal, Conte's men are in real danger of failing to win a trophy this season. If we win we can play another semifinal at Wembley. We don't have rules for the [different] competitions. Willy Caballero has started in the previous rounds of the FA Cup so I expect we'll see him recalled on Sunday.

"It's hard, but this is football", he continued. It was a pity to go out - especially after two good performances against Barcelona.

Honestly, this is more about Mark Hughes getting a feel for his players than trying to move onto the semifinals, but Saints will fancy building momentum and getting some redemption against a Wigan team dreaming of another fairytale run to cup glory. I don't know if who wins the titles like FA Cup or Capital Cup is the best team.

"For me, the most important thing is the process", the Spurs manager continued.

N'Golo Kante was able to help the Blues to a 2-1 victory over his former club at the King Power Stadium in September, before the two sides played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge in January.

"This is a great competition and the oldest in the world and for this reason we have to try to go to the next round". "We must be ready to share the responsibility with the club, with the players, with me and my staff".
