Leeds United have been handed a second opportunity to test themselves against Premier League opposition in the Carabao Cup, having drawn Leicester City in the fourth-round.
Thomas Christiansen’s side will travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester in late October – a reward for their fine display against Burnley on Tuesday evening, which saw Leeds win on penalties at Turf Moor.
Leicester, who were crowned Premier League Champions during the 2015/16 campaign, beat Liverpool on Tuesday night, with Craig Shakespeare’s side putting in an impressive display against one of the favourites to win the competition.

However, Leeds will look forward to the challenge another Premier League opponent will offer them, after Christiansen’s side made a strong start to the 2017/18 campaign in both the Sky Bet Championship and Carabao Cup.
Following the fourth-round draw and confirmation of a trip to Leicester, here is how Leeds’ supporters reacted…

Can't wait for Leicester fans to sing "Champions of England, you'll never sing that" to the three time Champions of England. #LUFC
