A strong second-half performance earned Leicester City a place in the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 4-1 victory over Sheffield United on Tuesday.
Craig Shakespeare made changes eight to his side that defeated Bright on Saturday and while the Foxes were unable to find the back of the net in the first 45 minutes, the club rallied with an offensive assault after the break. Demarai Gray provided the opener when he slotted a strike past the Sheffield keeper on 52 minutes. It didn't take long for the visitors to extend their lead, as Islam Slimani struck twice in four minutes to give Leicester a 3-0 advantage on 67 minutes. Though Chris Wilder pulled one back for the Blades in the 83rd, Leicester quelled any chances of comeback and added a fourth in stoppage time through Ahmed Musa. Aug 24 - 5:23 PM
