Morgan: We’ll play with no pressure

Wes Morgan says that while there is no pressure on Leicester City to win their final Champions League Group G game, it would be a boost for the club to get a result against Porto on Wednesday.

The Foxes travel to the Estadio Do Dragao as group leaders, having already progressed to the knockout rounds of the elite European competition with four wins and one draw.

Porto are second with eight points, ahead of Copenhagen on six and Club Brugge on zero points.

Ahead of the game, he told the club's official website: "We want to go there and still put in a good performance to try and get a good result, but at the same time we haven’t got the pressure on us of needing to get a win.

"That’s a nice position to be in, so we can go out there and enjoy the game.

"It is good to say that we’ve qualified with a game to spare – we’d have no doubt taken that at the beginning of our campaign, so it’s fantastic to be in that position and hopefully we can continue the good work.

"Remaining unbeaten will be a big boost and I’m sure teams will look at us as a big threat, so we definitely want to pick up a result. We’ll try our best to do that."

An Islam Slimani header saw Leicester beat Porto in September, with Morgan admitted his side didn't have it all their own way in that game.

He explained: "It wasn’t an easy game and it just comes down to the fine margins.

"Sometimes a moment of brilliance can win you the game and thankfully we got that vital goal to get the result."
