Leicester City striker aims a sly dig at Chelsea

Fousseni Diabate and Kelechi Iheanacho each scored twice as Leicester City cruised to a 5-1 victory over Peterborough in their fourth-round FA Cup match on Saturday.

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

The Foxes were two goals up inside the first 12 minutes when first Diabate broke the deadlock by poking the ball into the net before Iheanacho poached on a poor backpass to finish smartly into the bottom corner.

With Peterborough searching for a second goal, throwing more players in attack, Diabate grabbed his second of the game to put the game beyond Peterborough, before Ndidi added gloss to the scoreline with Leicester's fifth goal in the 90th minute.

It was the first goal Leicester has conceded this year.

Penny, who worked in a restaurant when playing for Nuneaton, joked he'd have no qualms about marking Vardy because he is faster over the turf than the experienced Premier League forward.

His compatriot Wilfred Ndidi completed the rout two minutes into stoppage time - his first of the season, rendering Andrew Hughes' 58th-minute effort a mere consolation.

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".

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has played down reports linking him with a move.

Peterborough, eighth in League One, may have sensed a cup upset following Puel's decision to rest a number of key players ahead of his side's league fixture at Everton on Wednesday night.

It was to get even worse for the hosts just three minutes later after Chris Forrester gifted the ball to Iheanacho deep inside the home side's half. Not to mention some riveting build-up regarding today's early game.

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