Leicester City go into Tuesday’s EFL Cup clash at Burton having just sealed a record-breaking win in the Premier League. Last Friday’s emphatic 9-0 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s was the biggest ever away victory in Premier League history.

Brendan Rodgers’ in-form Foxes ran riot at St Mary’s, with Ayoze Perez and Jamie Vardy both helping themselves to hat-tricks. Meanwhile, Ben Chilwell, Youri Tielemans and James Maddison were also on the scoresheet on a memorable night on the coast.

Leicester are in outstanding form at the moment, winning five of their last six in all competitions. City cruised past Luton Town with a 4-0 win in the previous round of the Carabao Cup, and Rodgers and his side will be looking for something similar on Tuesday.
