BREAKING: Leicester Beats Chelsea To Win FA Cup For The First Time In History

Leicester City have won their first ever FA Cup after defeating Chelsea 1-0.

A moment of magic from man-of-the-match Youri Tielemans proved to be the difference, although there was late drama when the ball pin-balled into the Leicester net of Ben Chilwell. The VAR, however, ruled Chilwell fractionally offside in the build-up to the incident in the 89th minute.

FA Cup final result: Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0 - The Athletic

Around 20,000 fans were in attendance at Wembley stadium, as part of the government’s pilot events for testing the gathering large crowds, to witness Leicester win their first FA Cup final in five attempts.

Chelsea will get an opportunity for some redemption as both sides face off again on Tuesday in a crunch fixture for Champions League qualification.

This season’s final took place before the end of the Premier League season — the first time this happened since 2012-13, when Wigan Athletic beat Manchester City 1-0.
