Chelsea will face Southampton in the semi-finals of the competition and will be hoping to reach the finals and taste some silverware unlike past year, where they lost to rivals Arsenal. To work hard with the players.

Pedro scored the victor in extra-time after Jamie Vardy had levelled the scores. Not to be deterred, he slipped a sumptuous pass into the path of Alvaro Morata, who duly tucked away his first goal of 2018.

Leicester came out strongly after the break and Riyad Mahrez could have levelled within two minutes, his 45-yard attempt following a poor clearance from Caballero drifting wide of goal. Vardy and Vicente Iborra saw shots blocked before the latter forced another effort on goal.

Both sides went for a victor in the final 10 minutes - Morata backheeling against the post from a Cesc Fabregas cross, although the offside flag was up, and Vardy firing low at Caballero before Schmeichel was quickly off his line to deny Morata.

Jamie Vardy sent Sunday's hotly-contested tie at the King Power Stadium into extra time when he fired in from close range on 76 minutes to cancel out Alvaro Morata's first-half opener, but Pedro Rodriguez came off the substitutes' bench to head in the winning goal for the visitors in the 105th minute.

Substitute Pedro leapt the highest to find the back of the net after a sublime delivery from N'Golo Kante coupled with an erratic decision to come out of his line from Kasper Schmeichel gifted Chelsea with the flawless escape route out of East Midlands. "The last game at home we suffered a lot against Leicester", he told BBC Sport. Wigan knocked Manchester City out in the previous round and was looking to beat its fourth Premier League side.

Portuguese right back Cedric finally sealed the win on a counterattack in injury time.
