Comments:

This was only the third time that Millwall had reached the last eight of the competition in the last 32 seasons. The Lions beat the reigning English top division champions in a senior game for the first time since a 3-1 win against Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup on 8 January 1927. It was the first time since 1936-37 that they had eliminated three top division sides in the same FA Cup campaign. Match-winner Shaun Cummings was a trainee at Chelsea when Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri was in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Comments:

Leicester City failed to score for the seventh time in ten league and cup games in 2017. This was City’s first FA Cup defeat to a side in the third tier or lower since they were knocked out by Wycombe Wanderers in the 6th round on 10 March 2001. They had now lost six of their seven games in this season directly before a UEFA Champions League fixture (drawn one).
