Leicester make light work of Peterborough

Leicester City cruise into the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to a straightforward 5-1 win at Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon.

Claude Puel had made 10 changes from the Leicester side that ran out 2-0 victors against Watford last weekend but the Foxes seemed unfazed by such tinkering.

"Of course, sometimes there is some risk, but it is important to build the team's strength for the future".

Fousseni Diabate also scored twice on a promising debut, with Wilfred Ndidi completing the scoresheet.

The Leicester City star has responded brilliantly to being linked with a move to the Premier League champions.

The German defender has been out with an ankle injury, which had required surgery during the summer, and is yet to appear for Puel's Leicester first-team.

"It's a lovely competition to play in".

To their credit, Peterborough rallied in the second half, and they pulled a goal back after 57 minutes when Andrew Hughes scored from a corner.

Penny, who used to work in a restaurant while playing for Nuneaton, joked: "Everyone has been saying that when the ball goes in the channel it's a race between me and him and he's nervous because he knows I'm going to burn him - I know I am faster than him".

Though, Leicester City will be hoping to do all they can to keep hold of the player who is the spearhead of their attack.

Peterborough are now eighth in League One and have already seen off Aston Villa in the FA Cup, who included Premier League-winner John Terry in their team and Leicester have loads of people who have won the title, so there could be another upset today.

The hosts gave themselves a slender chance of a miraculous fightback with a much-improved performance early in the second half which culminated in a goal just before the hour.

"All the fans came to support us looking for the upset, and we believed we could do it".
