Leicester manager Rodgers serious about winning Carabao Cup

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers says they're serious about winning the Carabao Cup this season.

Rodgers has set himself a target of winning a trophy during his time at City and victory over Burton Albion on Tuesday night (7.45 kick-off) will see the club move a step closer to the Carabao Cup, a competition they last won 20 years ago.

“In my time here, we'll be looking to do that [win silverware]," Rodgers said. “We want to win every game. Our objective is to make the club proud.

“There's other very, very good teams still left in, but we will be fighting to get into the quarter-finals.

“Whichever team I play I trust can get the result. You saw that in the first game [a penalty shoot-out win over Newcastle], you saw that against Luton and we'll see that on Tuesday.

“We'll pick a team that we think can get us into the quarter-final. We'll arrive there with great confidence."
