The highly anticipated F.A cup final between Leicester City and Chelsea ended in a 1-0 disappointing loss for Chelsea who were seen as favorite to win the competition after picking up a late form which saw them book a spot in the Champions League final.
Goal from Youri Tielemans in the 63rd minute was enough to put Chelsea to the sword as Leicester City defended their one goal advantage to win the cup for the first time in the clubs history.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have now consecutive F.A cup final having previously lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the 2020 F.A cup final and breaking a 22 years old record in the process.
The last team to loss the F.A cup final back to back was Newcastle United in 1998 and 1999.
With Champions League final coming up in few weeks time, I hope Chelsea will be able to bounce back from this setback.
