Manager wants to avoid a repeat of the 2015 FA Cup semi-final when his much-fancied Liverpool side lost to Aston Villa
Rodgers aiming to liberate Leicester against Aston Villa in trophy hunt
The praise is nice. The Premier League points tally is impressive. So, too, that record 9-0 victory over Southampton, which came amid a club record run of consecutive top-flight wins. But, ultimately, football is not so different to primary school and what Brendan Rodgers and Leicester really want is something big and shiny to show for their progress – a trophy, which could lead to others. Their first chance to win one is this season’s Carabao Cup, which is why Wednesday’s semi-final first leg against Aston Villa is so important.
Rodgers knows his team are heavily fancied to beat Villa, not least because they thrashed Dean Smith’s side 4-1 at Villa Park a month ago. He also knows that has little relevance. Nothing is fated. Villa reinforced that message to him a long time ago: Rodgers has prevailed in his past 30 domestic cup ties, a run straddling periods in charge of Liverpool, Celtic and now Leicester. But Villa were the last opponents to knock out one of his teams, when they shocked Liverpool by winning 2-1 in the 2015 FA Cup semi-final.
