Leicester City have had the odd match to savour in the FA Cup . . .
You could say Leicester City have a somewhat love-hate relationship with the FA Cup.
Having come away from Wembley empty-handed on four occasions, there is a great deal of heartbreak associated with the competition for many City fans.
But the FA Cup has also been the source of numerous memorable moments for the boys in blue. Here is a look at some of their classic encounters.
This is widely regarded as City's finest-ever FA Cup victory. When they were pulled from the hat to meet for the third successive season, hopes were not high as the blue side of Manchester had ended City's League Cup campaign four months earlier.

But hope was not lost as City held on for a draw at Maine Road to bring the replay back to Filbert Street.
Things did not start well for the home side when John Sjoberg brought down Francis Lee in the area after just six minutes, and the centre-forward duly scored from the spot.
Mike Summerbee made it 2-0 after just 22 minutes and the game looked all but over.
But when Rodney Fern scored seconds before half-time, the momentum shifted and Leicester went on to score three more in just 20 minutes.
Frank Large lashed home the equaliser just five minutes into the second period before David Nish smashed home a third.
City turned on the style and added their fourth when Large headed home from a corner. Colin Bell added a late consolation but it was not enough as the final whistle sent Filbert Street into raptures.
City produced a Keith Weller-inspired masterclass to demolish Luton at Kenilworth Road.
Steve Earle bagged himself a brace but it was the City winger who stole the headlines, as Weller set up Frank Worthington to score City's third. But the best was saved for last as Weller wound his way majestically through the Luton defence before curling a shot with his 'weaker' left foot straight into the top corner.
City's performance was described in the Sunday Times as having "all the culture, imagination and ball skills we have long believed to be either things of the past or secrets guarded by men of darker skins in far-off Brazil".
Rumour has it that the then-Manchester City boss Malcolm Allison, who was in the crowd that day, went into the dressing room, shook each player by the hand and declared that it was the finest display of passing football he had ever seen.
It moved from pure magic to schoolboy fairytale in the next round, as City found themselves in the midst of an injury crisis.
With kingpin Alan Birchenall ruled out of action, they also had Alan Woollett, his usual second-in-command, sidelined too. Manager Jimmy Bloomfield gambled on young Irishman Joe Waters, who had never even been on the bench, let alone start. And it paid off.
The debutant opened the scoring with a thunderous shot from 20 yards.
He then started, and finished, the move that sealed City's place in their sixth semi-final. Waters picked up the ball in his own half and, after a one-two with Earle, got to the ball ahead of QPR keeper Phil Parkes to carve his name into City folklore.
This one went from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again. Larry May gave City an early lead before a foul on captain Mark Wallington, by Shrewsbury's Chic Bates, put a hole in the goalkeeper's thigh.
The horrific injury left him unable to stop Bates's leveller and John Keay's second five minutes later.
With Wallington unable to continue, City striker Alan Young donned the keeper's shirt, while the hosts got back on level terms through a Colin Griffin own-goal.
It was then Young's turn to depart when he was left dazed after a clash with Bernard McNally, resulting in Steve Lynex becoming City's third goalkeeper of the afternoon until Young was able to return.
With the hosts and the fans clearly fired up, City swept Shrewsbury aside as Jim Melrose went on off the bench to score twice, and Gary Lineker secured an incredible 5-2 win.
City's run of six successive failures at making it to the fourth round came to an end when a last-minute winner from local boy Richard Smith sent them through for the first time since 1985.
With just seconds left on the clock, City won a free-kick deep in Palace's half. Gary Mills floated the ball into the box and everyone stood and watched as Smith ghosted in at the back post to volley home.
As the ball hit the back of the net, the lad from Lutterworth threw his arms into the air and fell to his knees as he was swamped by his team-mates.
