Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson believes performances similar to the one that saw them beat promotion favourites Birmingham on Tuesday night, could lead to a cup upset against Chelsea at the weekend.

Pearson said: "If we apply ourselves in the way we have here (against Birmingham) then, who knows?"

Championship Leicester travel to Stamford Bridge for their FA Cup quarter-final clash.

"We certainly go into game as underdogs. But the players should look at it as an opportunity to cause an upset, that's what the FA Cup is all about," said Pearson.

He added: "It's an opportunity for the players to go and enjoy the challenge of playing against one of the top sides in the country."
