West Ham United 2-3 Leicester City

West Ham United 2-3 Leicester City

Comebacks seems to be the theme of UEFA Champions League in the last-16 stage. "We'll find out when we go back in after training".

Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare on Jamie Vardy's return to form: "Tell me a forward who hasn't gone through that spell". Buffon is right to assert that which ever team is drawn against Leicester, should not take them lightly. They still need a couple of wins - they're on 33 - to push them up to the fabled 40 points and get themselves safe for next season.

The reigning Premier League champions created further history on Tuesday night when they beat Spanish side Sevilla 2-0 to advance to the quarter-finals of Europe's elite club competition with a 3-2 aggregate triumph.

"We did it and we proved a lot of people wrong".

"It was a poor performance, so I think West Ham will be fired up".

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.

"There are some good ones and he is proven in terms of being in the (England) squad before so he's up there with the best of them".

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.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan sees no reason not to dream of Champions League glory.

West Ham have lost as many games against Leicester in their last five (4), as they did in the previous 25 combined (all comps).

Just when it looked Sevilla could catch up with Shakespeare's side in the second half, Leicester frustrated their opponents further with midfielder Marc Albrighton scoring his first goal of the season.

It was a thrilling finale with West Ham looking most likely to score the next goal and they nearly did in stoppage time but for an outstanding save from Schmeichel, who somehow denied a Carroll shot from only a few yards out.

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.

Since his debut in September 2012, Andy Carroll has appeared in just 94 of West Ham's 178 Premier League matches (53%) and played just 40% of possible minutes (6472).

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.
