Jamal Blackman believes the Blades have the chance to cause an FA Cup shock when they face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Friday night.

The Blades will be the underdogs against the 2015/2016 Premier League Champions, who beat Chris Wilder's side 4-1 in the second round of the Carabao Cup back in August.

But Blackman insists the Blades have nothing to lose in the fifth round tie, commenting: "We take each game as it comes but doing so well in the Championship having come up from League One, people are seeing this is quite a big season for us.

"We can take the game in our stride and see how we go, there is always pressure, we want to win and obviously beating Leicester would a fantastic achievement."

The Chelsea loanee added: "The FA Cup is one of those competitions what everyone watches, heroes can be made and shocks can be caused.

"Everyone loves to see the underdogs prevail and we are looking forward to going to Leicester and giving it a real go."
