Could Leicester Be Giant Killers?

Championship side Leicester undoubtedly go into today's FA Cup match against Chelsea as the underdogs, but manager Nigel Pearson believes his team is capable of causing an upset.

The Foxes travel to Stamford Bridge this afternoon for the sixth round tie, having beaten premiership side Norwich in the previous round.

"Due to the nature of knockout competitions, anything can happen on the day.

"We have to go into the game with a very positive mindset and make life difficult for them, so of course I believe we can move forward. Although, clearly we have to catch them on a not so good day and we have to be at our best.

"I still think it is a fabulous opportunity for the players to show what they can do and we have earned our place in the quarter-finals."
