The Foxes boss believes that the Blues are the side with high expectations towards them in the upcoming Fa Cup quarter-final on Sunday.

Leicester City head coach Claude Puel believes that Antonio Conte and his men are the ones under pressure after the FA Cup remains their only chance of winning any kind of silverware, following their knockout in the Champions League from Barcelona.

The Foxes boss is well-aware that this tie is important for this side, but also hopes that there will be even more important ones to come in the future.

“Yes the pressure is on Chelsea,” he said, according to Sky. “It is the last chance for them to win a trophy. I think for us it is not just a normal game also.

“The players wait for these games with desire and without pressure because this team is favourite, but we have good attributes also and we can cause them problems.

“We need to give a collective response against this team. It is a big game for the fans and the squad and the club.”
