The Foxes youngsters emerged as 3-2 victors in their final Premier League Cup group stage fixture on Monday evening, earning a spot in the competition’s round of 16 as a result. After defeats in each of their first three matches, it was some turnaround to qualify.

“It's a brilliant feeling,” the youngster admitted following full-time at LCFC Training Ground. “I think the lads started off slowly, but winning three games on the bounce in this competition has been really good for us.

'Getting Sharper & Sharper'

Will Alves speaks after returning to action in the Leicester City Development Squad's win over Brentford B at LCFC Training Ground.

“To qualify, it's a great achievement for all the boys as well. The way that the lads have dug in and how we've performed in this competition has been really good in the later stages. We’re just looking forward to the next round now.”

In a good place following injury, having had a setback on his return from anterior cruciate ligament damage, the 18-year-old got over an hour in the tank, just the second time he has featured in a competitive game this season.

The midfielder added: “I thought I did well; it was just nice to be out there playing again, really. Obviously, I've struggled to be on the pitch recently, and just being able to play 60 minutes and get through it fine, is a great feeling for myself.

“I'm just going to keep pushing, getting sharper and sharper and in a better condition as well, just playing more minutes and looking forward to the next games and training as well.”
