Brendan Rodgers believes Leicester will be better for the experience of losing in the Carabao Cup semi-finals last season as they prepare to start a new campaign with the visit of Arsenal.

He said: “I think that was disappointing for us because I thought over the two games we were the better team but we didn’t qualify, so that was a competition that hurt us last year.

“But you have to feel that pain in order to improve and progress, so it’s a game that we’ll give everything (in) to get into the next round.

“Because of the limited number of games that we’ve had and training time we’ve had, I’m going to have to make a number of changes.

“We’re going to rely on the squad this year and I need to get some players some game time and up to speed. The idea will be to go out and win the game and we’ll put a team out to do that.”

Whoever progresses at the King Power will take on the winners of Lincoln v Liverpool in the next round.

Rodgers added: “I think, however you want to progress, you have to play, you know, Championship teams, League One teams, it doesn’t matter.

“You just have to play who’s in front of you. So, yes, we’ll look forward to the game.”

The ties will be played on the week commencing September 28 and the exact fixture dates and kick-off times will be confirmed soon.
