Shakespeare: I have personality to manage in Champions League

Shakespeare's appointment as permanent boss, albeit initially on a short-term deal until the end of the season, will see him try to steer the Foxes into the last eight of the Champions League.

Leicester went into match knowing that a win without conceding a goal would be enough for them to qualify for the last eight, but that possibility nearly disappeared after less than four minutes when Samir Nasri wrong-footed Morgan inside the penalty area before forcing an excellent save out of Kasper Schmeichel. Just let that soak in for a moment. A shanked cross from Gabriel Mercado nearly fooled goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but the Dane knocked it over.

Sevilla president Pepe Castro has said he has no concerns over reports linking coach Jorge Sampaoli with the upcoming managerial vacancy at Barcelona.

Leicester was quicker to most balls, playing a simple but highly effective game.

"It will be a special occasion at the King Power", he said.

Yet Leicester could easily have fallen behind before anyone had chance to catch their breath.

Sevilla utterly dominated the first leg of this match, and had it not been for a string of excellent saves from Kasper Schmeichel, Leicester would've been dead and buried at the midway point of the tie.

As after the first goal, Sevilla came to life in the hunt for a way past Leicester's resolute defence.

On 26 minutes, Vardy's sharp "busy-ness" brought a foul from Vicente Iborra, Riyad Mahrez stepped up to curl in a fine free-kick and captain Morgan arrived at the back post. With players like Vitolo and Jovetic in the line up, the spanish side can be a huge threat to Leicester. Yet Leicester remained resilient and looked much more compact and disciplined than they did in Seville.

Time and again Albrighton and Mahrez broke free of the midfield, moving into the outside forward positions; the former earned a corner from which the latter had an attempt on goal.

However, fight is expected to become tougher in the area due to narrow alleyways through which armoured vehicles can not pass. No more than 2,500 jihadists are believed remaining in Mosul and Tal Afar, according to a U.S. defense official.

Counterattacks provided a chance to relieve the pressure towards the end of a breathless first half.

With this victory, the dream continues for Leicester. Wissam Ben Yedder profligately volleyed over the rebound and the significance of that passage of play soon become clear.

Leicester went straight up the other end to ultimately put Albrighton into a similar but more hard shooting position to Pareja, but there was nothing rushed about what he did.

With the ball being worked around the Leicester area, Nasri and Vardy's heads went together following a disagreement between the pair. He trained them before the match against Liverpool and then the one against Hull.

The referee showed a yellow card to each player with Nasri picking up his second caution of the game, resulting in a red card.
