King reveals trophy target

Leicester midfielder Andy King insists now the Premier League champions have a taste for silverware they want more.

The Wales international, a boyhood Chelsea fan, is preparing for the Blues' EFL Cup visit to the King Power Stadium on Tuesday.

King is likely to start, with Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri set to make wholesale changes to his side with Saturday's trip to Manchester United and next Tuesday's Champions League visit of Porto in mind.

Leicester won the Premier League by 10 points last season, deposing 2015 champions Chelsea, and, after the first top-flight title in their history, King is eager for more.

"Once you get a taste of silverware like we did last year we almost want to get as much as possible," he said ahead of the clash with Chelsea. "We know it doesn't always work like that but we will be going in to obviously try and get as far as we can.

"It is a tough game and I am sure they are going to want to come pretty strong as they are not in any European competitions this year. They are only playing weekends in the league. It is going to be a tough game.

"We're going to have to go into it and be at our best as we want to go as far as we can in every competition."
