Leicester City are one of the best teams in England this season, thanks to the majestic work of the manager Brendan Rodgers.

In the previous round Leicester City needed penalties in order to reach the 1/2-finals. Rodgers’ boys visited Everton at the Goodison Park where the game ended with a 2-2 draw. James Maddison and Johnny Evans gave the Foxes a good lead, but Everton managed to equalize. It went to penalties where Leicester won, despite of James Maddison missing from the spot.
Aston Villa reached the 1/2-finals of the competition after a 5-0 win at home against Liverpool, but here’s the moment to remind you that the Reds travelelled to Villa Park without any of their first team players and without the manager Jurgen Klopp. The reason for this was the club’s participation at the World Club Cup, which Liverpool won.
Facing a team which was build entirely by youngsters, Aston Villa didn’t have a problem to score five goals and win. Jonathan Kodjia scored a brace, while Conor Hourihane and Wesley also scored for Villa. Liverpool’s Morgan Boyes had the bad luck to score himself an own goal.
