Leicester City stampeded through Peterborough United in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The scoreline of 5-1 was indicative of the kind of form the team was in on the day - especially in the first half.

Due to the one-sided nature of the match, and a little help from Paul Merson, there was a fair amount of conversation surrounding the Foxes:

Ah, yes, good ol’ Paul Merson analysis. How did that work out for you, Merse?

That’s about the right reaction.

And then the internet caught wind of it and rightfully mocked him.

Silly Claude. Didn't he know that if he played the first XI they would have won by even more?

And then there’s this. Not exactly a weak side by any means.

Look at that style. We should have known right then and there what kind of debut he was going to have.

City’s scouts are clairvoyant. Well, aside from that whole Ahmed Musa thing they are.

Look at that touch. And that finish. Fousseni Diabaté looks like a real prospect.

Kelechi Iheanacho’s decision making here: questionable. Kelechi Iheanacho’s finishing here: not questionable.

“Oh” is right. We were all on the same wavelength while this was happening.

This goal is majestic and I am convinced that Christian Fuchs used telekinesis to guide the cross.

Everything about it was amazing. It was basically the perfect goal.

Iheanacho owns the FA Cup. Its his and he is free to do as he pleases with it. Seems like he’ll just keep scoring in it, though.

And now commence the Fousseni Diabaté love. He looks like a real player.

Fousseni Diabaté looks like a real star.

Alright, that’s it. Fousseni Diabaté is the best player to ever live.

Somebody tell Chelsea that we are not their feeder club. And we want Drinky back. And Kanté too, while we’re at it.

Winning? Fresh players? The horror!
