Leicester City 2 Wigan Athletic 0
The Foxes made it through to the third round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-0 home victory over Wigan Athletic. Commentators: John Dunn and Gerry Taggart
Leicester commenced their 2019/20 FA Cup campaign with a routine 2-0 success over Paul Cook's Wigan Athletic at King Power Stadium on Saturday 4 January.
Barnes then added his name to the scoresheet five minutes before half-time, collecting Chilwell's pass, cutting inside and sending a deflected shot into the bottom corner.
“You can see Wigan's technical quality and their movement is good, they’ve got some fast players,” Rodgers told LCFC TV at full-time.
“It was always going to be a test for us, especially with their recent history in the cup, but we got the job done and that was important.”

Watch the best of the action at Griffin Park from the Foxes' 1-0 victory over Brentford in the Emirates FA Cup...
Kelechi Iheanacho's early effort was enough for Leicester City to secure a 1-0 fourth round victory over Brentford at Griffin Park on Saturday 25 January.
While City were on top for much of the game, Danny Ward prevented Luka Racic from levelling the scores, while youngster Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall also made his debut from the bench.
"I’m so happy, I’m over the moon!" the midfielder told LCFC TV. "I’ve been at the Club since I was eight, this is my boyhood club, and I’ve worked so hard to get to this point.
"So, it’s just an honour to be able to play for this club and I’m grateful for everyone that’s helped me along the way and hopefully this is just the beginning."

Leicester City 1 Birmingham City 0
Extended highlights from the Foxes' FA Cup victory over Birmingham City at King Power Stadium.
A late winner from Ricardo Pereira booked Leicester City's place in the quarter-finals with a 1-0 success over Birmingham City on Filbert Way on Wednesday 4 March.
Pep Clotet's Blues were stern opposition for the Foxes, but the home side's persistence eventually paid off in the 82nd minute as Albrighton crossed for Ricardo to head past Lee Camp.
"I thought it was a very good performance,” Rodgers told LCFC TV. "Birmingham are a team that, as you’ve seen from their record since the turn of the year, haven’t lost a game.
"That tells you there’s a resilience there and Leicester City supporters will know from being in the Championship when you’re a Championship team playing against a Premier League team, you’re always going to raise your game that extra percentage as well."
City: Schmeichel; Ricardo, Evans, Söyüncü, Chilwell; Albrighton, Praet, Ndidi (Tielemans 60'), Maddison (Choudhury 84'), Gray (Barnes 66'); Iheanacho
