Leicester Beat Chelsea To Win First-Ever FA Cup After Youri Tielemans Stunner

Leicester City won their first-ever FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Chelsea thanks to a stunning goal from Youri Tielemans on Saturday at Wembley.

The midfielder produced a fantastic goal in the second half to earn Leicester a historic victory in front of a crowd of 20,000 people — the largest attendance at a UK football ground since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

The win also sees Brendan Rodgers earn his first-ever major trophy in English football.

The result sees Chelsea lose back-to-back FA Cup finals after suffering defeat at the hands of Arsenal last season.

Thomas Tuchel’s side will have another chance to collect silverware when they meet Manchester City in the Champions League final later this month.

It was a very cagey start to the match with the first chance coming after 24 minutes when Mason Mount’s strike outside of the area was deflected wide.

Chelsea had another opportunity to open the scoring moments later but Timo Werner flicked off the ball away from the Cesar Azpilicueta who was free for a tap-in.

Leicester suffered a blow just after the half an hour mark when Jonny Evans had to be brought off with an injury and was replaced by Marc Albrighton.

Leicester’s best chance came when Tielemans produced a lofted pass to Jamie Vardy who headed wide before the break. The first half ended without a single attempt on target from both sides.

It was another slow start to the half but the game was brought to life after 63 minutes when Tielemans scored with a stunning long-range effort.

Chelsea introduced Christian Pulisic and Ben Chilwell after the goal and the latter came close to an equaliser after 77 minutes but his header was denied by a great Kasper Schmeichel save.

Schmeichel made an even better stop with four minutes remaining when he denied a Mount volley from inside the box.

Chilwell thought he had grabbed a late equaliser but it was ruled out for offside and Leicester held on for the win.
