Leicester City starlet Jeffrey Schlupp is excited to be facing Chelsea hero Michael Essien.

Schlupp is hoping to get the nod for Sunday's quarter-final against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

He said: "I look up to him, and look forward to playing with him at some point.

"He is a well-respected player, he is an icon over there and to play against someone like him is an achievement.

"Maybe I can get his shirt."
