94'
FT: Leicester 0-1 Chelsea! All over at the KP Stadium! Leicester edged the first half, but Chelsea were the much better team in the second period. In the end, Ross Barkley scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute after a pass from Willian, but Schmeichel made a couple of top saves. Chelsea were very comfortable after scoring bar the last five minutes and deserved the win. They're in the SF draw later today. Thanks for joining us and see you again soon!
