Kasper Schmeichel claims that Leicester are confident ahead of their trip to Chelsea.

Leicester City keeper Kasper Schmeichel has said that the club are full of confidence ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

Schmeichel, whose side are the last remaining non-Premier League outfit in the competition, admits that Leicester are expecting a tough test. However, he insists that the Foxes are capable of giving Chelsea a good game.

"No matter what team Chelsea put out it's going to be top class," he said.

"I'd take a boring 1-0 win if I could, but I'm not expecting that. We're expecting a tough game from them.

"If we hit form we are capable of giving them a good game, so we're going there confident to get a good result."

Meanwhile, Nigel Pearson's side are in 12th place in the Championship.
