Marc Albrighton insists Leicester are capable of further Champions League shocks

Despite the amount of pressure clubs place on their managers to qualify for the Champions League, there hasn't been much success for English sides of late.

"I haven't found it a challenge so far and I can only go on what I have experienced". The 48-year-old has also been speaking to the Sun about their upcoming match and how they need to stop Jamie Vardy. Buffon is right to assert that which ever team is drawn against Leicester, should not take them lightly.

Mourinho referenced the current standards and practices in Germany, and also said that during his time as Inter Milan boss "it was decided that when the clubs go to the knockout stages of the Europa League and the Champions League, they play (league games) on the previous Friday".

"His two penalty saves were brilliant and he's kept us in the games".

Leicester City's players will be barred from watching the Champions League quarter-final draw today because Craig Shakespeare, the manager, insists that beating West Ham United tomorrow takes priority.

The frustration led to former Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri, who is on a loan spell to Sevilla, headbutting Jamie Vardy in the 73rd minute and being sent off after getting his second yellow card.

"We have to improve and we have to bounce back". Strikers live and die by their goals but the overall performance of forwards is vitally important.

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.

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.

Leicester Chave won all seven Premier League matches that they have been leading this season and are the only side yet to drop a point from a winning position.

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

However, Leicester haven't scored the first goal in any of their 13 Premier League away games this season - the only side not to do this.

Leicester's title defense has been so pitiful that it has taken until March and a trip to the Olympic Stadium to finally win an away game in the league at its 14th attempt - but only thanks to the second-half saves from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
