Leicester captain Morgan admits to dreaming of Champions League glory

Leicester captain Morgan admits to dreaming of Champions League glory

"We're the newcomers to the Champions League".

"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". They have enthusiasm and passion, but also the weapons to hurt a side that wants to take the initiative. They threw everything at us in the second half and Kasper had to make some special saves again. That was a 1-0 win in August 2000.

The draw for the last eight takes place in Nyon, Switzerland, with Leicester in with European heavyweights such as Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Barcelona.

3-2 on aggregate following last month's 2-1 defeat in Spain.

One man keeping a close eye on matters was Gary Lineker who, after starting his professional career with the club, was as delighted as anyone at their league successes last season.

Riyad Mahrez, Robert Huth and Jamie Vardy were all on target at the London Stadium against West Ham.

Morgan opened the scoring in the 27th minute before Albrighton added a second goal nine minutes into the second half.

For now, Leicester will continue to the fly the English flag this season but face a tough task to extend their fairytale story further.

Samir Nasri was sent off after clashing with Jamie Vardy minutes before Steven N'Zonzi's penalty was saved by Schmeichel and boss Jorge Sampaoli was sent to the stands.

"No secret. I think hard work, endeavor, resilience", said Shakespeare, who has been promoted to take charge until the end of the season. He played it well. He's fantastic and I'm delighted for him. I didn't do anything with my head...

"The players' image has tarnished a little bit", he said.

"We did it and we proved a lot of people wrong". In football everything is determined by the small details. "The team wasn't winning games and was hurtling towards relegation with performances that were unacceptable". "That is my only sad thing. In the right moment, we should be there", Guardiola said.

Kasper Schmeichel was at his very best to make a vital late save, while an terrible Ayew miss let Leicester off the hook and saw the match slip away from West Ham.

But The Blues were left stunned with Monaco's speed up in front as the back four failed to contain runs from Kylian Mbappe-Lottin, Thomas Lemar and Fabinho. Manuel Lanzini and Jordan Ayew scored the Hammers's goals.

A solid start by Manchester City in the second half saw Monaco chasing down Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero.

"On the outside you try to keep and collected to keep the players focused. We have defied the odds there, we will go and do it again", said the 27-year-old.
