Michael Appleton plays down talk over Leicester City job

Kelechi Iheanacho quickly equalised for Leicester, and second half goals from Algerian duo Islam Slimani and Riyad Mahrez was enough to see City advance to the quarter finals of the competition.

The Foxes, who remain under the tutelage of Michael Appleton after the sacking of Craig Shakespeare, are unbeaten in their last three Premier League games and beat Swansea at the weekend.

Leeds had made 10 changes to the team which beat Bristol City on Saturday, with one eye on Friday's night's match with Sheffield United.

Thomas Christiansen's side found their feet first after a scrappy opening, and Jay-Roy Grot saw his close-range effort blocked by Ben Hamer after playing a one-two with Kemar Roofe.

It was no surprise when the visitors went ahead.

But Slimani then made no mistake when presented with an even easier chance in the 71st minute as Iheanacho raced away down the left flank and delivered a flawless low cross that allowed Slimani to convert from close range.
