Leicester beats Chelsea to claim first FA Cup title

178

It was an intriguing first half game between Chelsea and the foxes from the Wembley Stadium this afternoon.

A goalless half-time game, technically, tactically Thomas Tuchels men outplayed Brendan Rodgers foxes.

Chelsea with eight attempts with 55percentage of the possessions while Leicester has five attempts with 44percentage of the first-half possessions.

Chelsea had series of chances that couldn’t be buried with Chelsea’s Captain Aziplicueta, missing a great head chance to secure a goal for his side. Chelsea would have to be careful with aerial balls coming heavily to Chelsea’s backline causing a lot of threat to Kepa.

The two teams might come out strong as we look forward to the second half.

Tielemans now fires Leicester up to the first goal in the game. Leicester 1-0 Chelsea

GOOOOOOAAAALLL!

That is a bona fide, Ronnie Radford-style FA Cup screamer. Chelsea gave the ball away in their own half, Perez rolled the ball inside for Tielemans. He had options right and left, but put his head down and rifled a right-footed shot into the top corner from more than 25 yards. Kepa no chance. Leicester have the lead.

 

Chelsea are starting to gain territory as you might expect but Leicester are standing firm. Mount tries to take something happen but the ball was running away from him and Soyuncu kept his composure.

BIG save from Schmeichel for the first time in the game! It was the two former Leicester players who combined – Kante’s cross was met by Chilwell at the back stick but the goalkeeper plunged to his right to pluck it from the bottom corner. Maybe have been going in off the post. Leicester survives

Brendan Rodgers was given the bumps by his players. It is his first major trophy in English football…

Schmeichel speaks

“So happy I can’t begin to describe it. What a day. Indescribable, it’s what dreams are made of, I’ve dreamt about this since I was child, we have talked about wanting to win trophies. The performance today, the grit and determination, I’m so proud of everybody, everybody contributed to get to the final everyone has played and been sensational. Everyone behind the scenes, all the team behind the team, medical staff and everyone. That’s why when you work together and do things properly and you have an internal belief that’s what we can achieve.”
