The Liverpool player who can still win the FA Cup

Bramall Lane Sheffield United

Liverpool may be knocked out of the FA Cup, but one of their loanees still has a slim chance of lifting the trophy - and an even better one of reaching Wembley.

Liverpool will still be taking in their unfortunate exit at The Emirates yesterday, with Luis Suarez denied what looked to be a straightforward penalty.

The club's sole focus will now be on the Premier League, where they sit just three points behind the Gunners.

There is one Liverpool player however who still has a chance to lift the FA Cup, even if the bookies make it a 80/1 shot.

The player in question is England under-20 captain Conor Coady, who scored for Sheffield United in their 3-1 fifth round win over Nottingham Forest.

The central midfielder, who featured for the Reds last season in the Europa League, has made 21 League One appearances for the Blades on loan this campaign, scoring twice and providing three assists in those matches.

This was his sixth FA Cup clash, with Sheffield United entering the competition in the first round, beating Colchester United, Cambridge United, Aston Villa and Fulham to reach yesterday's match-up.

While lifting the cup remains only a slim chance, Coady will fancy his chances of making it to Wembley thanks to an inspiring quarter-final draw.

United have a home fixture against the winners of Charlton Athletic and rivals Sheffield Wednesday, with the original tie postponed at the weekend.

With semi-finals played at Wembley, Coady and Sheffield United will fancy themselves despite being the lowest ranked league side remaining in the competition, in front of a packed Bramall Lane which recorded it's highest attendance of the season yesterday with more than 25,000 taking their seats.

Coady's loan is so far giving him just what he needed, the chance to play regular football - and a visit to Wembley would be the icing on the cake.
