Leicester's manager Craig Shakespeare reckons his team (R.I.P Claudio) has plenty more to offer: "We might just be the surprise team," he said. "We know there's going to be some terrific teams, as there were in the previous round.

"We have to be delighted with the performance and knocking Sevilla out. Their record in Europe is there for everyone to see. We're in there on merit. Make no mistake about that."

Make no mistake about it, Gigi.

You better watch your back...
