Leicester City pulled off a surprise 3-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, as they knocked out Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side from the FA Cup.
Chelsea defeated Sheffield United to go through to the semi-final stage of the FA Cup, and the Blues will face a rampant City side in the semis. Leicester City will in turn face Southampton in the other semi-final clash.
Speaking after their win over Manchester United, Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers has hailed his team for pulling such a fight to beat Manchester United. An upbeat Rodgers even insisted that his side can go all the way, as he vowed they will fight with everything they’ve got.
“We are in the semi-final and we have a chance to get to the final and create history,” Rodgers said, after only the Foxes’ second win over United in 23 years.
“When it comes, we will fight and give everything we can to achieve that.
“For the club to get to the final and win the trophy would be really special. It’s a trophy in their history they haven’t won. I would be so happy for the owners.
“There are lots of teams ahead of us in terms of budget or whatever else, maybe history, but the ambition is there to win titles and be competitive.
“It’s a tough game in the semi-final but the club has never won the FA Cup so to be able to do something like that will be special.
“We were very complete. You are playing against a top-class team but it was an outstanding performance against a very good side.
“We have developed very well, the confidence comes when you start to win big games against big opponents. We passed the test. It was a measure of how well the players are progressing.”
