The Foxes are in superb form winning 6 of their 7 games in the Championship this season and Iheanacho has sent a warning to the Reds not to expect an easy tie.

“We’re excited,” Iheanacho told the club’s official website.

 “We know what Anfield is like. It’s a great atmosphere there. We’re not going there for the atmosphere, we’re going there to compete. 

“We played them in pre-season and we’re in a good place now. We’re winning games. It’s a cup game, but we know what they’re like. They’re a strong side, they’ve been doing well this season in the Premier League. 

“They’re going to be strong for us, but we need to really work hard to get the win. Hopefully, we’ll do that, so let’s see what comes out of that. They press really well. We have to be careful of that as well. 

“We’ll try to give them a game, but we know they’re a strong side.”
