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.
