PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Some FA Cup Finals occupy an enduring place in English culture. The White Horse Final of 1923, the Matthews Final in 1953, Sunderland’s victory over Leeds United in 1973 with Jim Montgomery’s famous double save. They all symbolise things we love about English football: popular fervour, individual brilliance, the joy of a giant-killing.Those finals still move us now and in years to come, they will be joined in our football folklore by this FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Leicester City. If we are to give it a name, we could do worse than the Fans’ Final because this was the moment when, after all the pain and disruption of Covid-19, football started to feel like football again.After all the ghost games, after all those disembodied matches we have watched in echoing, empty stadiums when all that is to be heard is the shouts and cries of the players and the exhortations of the substitutes and staff in the stands, we got our game back. Leicester City won this match and that was a magnificent, moving story on its own but there were 21,000 winners inside Wembley and millions more watching on television. Leicester City have won the FA Cup after beating Chelsea 1-0 in a cagey contest in front of 22,000 fans at Wembley Stadium Leicester City star and veteran striker Jamie Vardy rejoices after the Foxes won the trophy for the first time in their history The 34-year-old struggles to hold back the tears after his side secured a famous victory in front of returning supporters Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers celebrates after leading his side to a famous victory in London on Saturday afternoon Rodgers is thrown into the air after becoming the first boss since Sir Alex Ferguson to win the FA Cup and Scottish Cup Wilfred Ndidi celebrates with the famous trophy after starring in Leicester's midfield alongside Youri Tielemans at Wembley The Leicester squad gather around Brendan Rodgers to celebrate after delivering the club's first ever FA Cup trophy Caglar Soyuncu celebrates with Youri Tielemans and Timothy Castagne after Leicester defeated rivals Chelsea at Wembley Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, was on hand to pass the trophy to Leicester captain Kasper Schmeichel after their win Meanwhile, it was heartbreak for Chelsea who were looking to make it a ninth FA Cup triumph in the club's decorated history Tammy Abraham consoles Christian Pulisic after Chelsea were denied a late equaliser by a controversial VAR decision Timo Werner and Kepa Arrizabalaga stand alone and cut dejected figures after failing to get over the line in the final RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next PLAYER RATINGS: Kasper Schmeichel pulls-off HUGE saves to... Leicester's FA Cup win is fitting in a month that saw the... Thomas Tuchel's decision to deploy Reece James at centre... Share this article Share This was a game, in the end, that had everything but it was worth so much more because it was full of the noise and the passion and the joy and the despair that fans bring to our national sport. Football without fans is not nothing but it is only a miserable fraction of the sport we love.What a story this was for a Leicester side who have never won football’s most famous competition before, have lost four times in the final and had not appeared in it since 1969 when they lost to Manchester City and a solitary goal by Neil Young. After their fairy-tale Premier League title win in 2016, this was another moment to treasure.High in the Wembley stands on the top tier, a giant flag had been draped over the seats with a photo of Leicester’s late owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died in a helicopter crash in 2018. ‘Our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them,’ the words next to his image said and how Leicester battled to bear them out. After the game, his son danced on the pitch with the Leicester players, tears in his eyes.Leicester won this match against a Chelsea side, who will play in the Champions League Final in a fortnight and were strong favourites, with a brilliant strike from man-of-the-match Youri Tielemans. They also needed one of the FA Cup Final’s greatest saves from Kasper Schmeichel to keep out a shot from Mason Mount and the intervention of VAR to save them from a scrambled Chelsea equaliser.What an evening, what a wonderful, moving, evening. Never had Abide With Me sounded so emotional. Never had sitting in match traffic on the North Circular Road felt so reassuring. Never had seeing Leicester’s players throwing themselves to the turf in unrestrained joy at the final whistle felt so emotional. Never had the rescue of English football from the prospect of a European Super League seemed so uplifting.When that final whistle went, Leicester fulfilled a lifelong dream of Gary Lineker who said before the game that he had been fantasising all his broadcasting life of being able to say on air that his boyhood team had won the FA Cup. He had measured out his life in occasions like this, too. His trip to see the 1969 final was the first time he had been to London. Now there was another occasion that will live with him and everyone who was here forever. Youri Tielemans scored a goal worthy of winning any final with a sensational strike from distance that found the net The Belgian wheels away in celebration after scoring one of the greatest goals in the history of the famous competition Tielemans makes a love heart gesture to Leicester supporters who travelled to Wembley for the showpiece event on Saturday Chelsea thought they had scored a late equaliser after Ben Chilwell helped the ball into the back of the net against his old side The Englishman rallies the travelling Chelsea supporters who were jubilant after they scored late at Wembley Stadium However, video technology intervened to overrule the decision and restore Leicester's lead in dramatic circumstances Chilwell was deemed marginally offside in the build up and Michael Oliver was instructed to disallow the late equaliser Mason Mount looks to the heavens after Chelsea's late goal was disallowed on a miserable afternoon for the youngsterMaybe we had started to take the FA Cup for granted in the time before Covid but tradition seems even more precious now. And so the biggest crowd anywhere in Britain since March 2020 became the latest landmark in the country’s attempt to emerge from the darkness of the coronavirus crisis.The match had not started well. It took 15 minutes for either side to fashion even a half chance and it was Leicester who created it. Timothy Castagne ran on to a ball that caught out Marcos Alonso and crossed first time for Jamie Vardy who had peeled away from his marker 10 yards out. Vardy hit it first time but Reece James produced a fine block to thwart the danger.Midway through the half, Mount, who has been one of the revelations of this season, span away from Caglar Soyuncu and ran away from Wilfred Ndidi before pulling his shot from the edge of the area just wide. Mount created the threat again five minutes later when he raced on to a pass to cross from the goal line. The ball flew across the area and when it was turned back in by Thiago Silva, Timo Werner flicked it on and Cesar Azpilicueta came within a hair’s breadth of applying the finishing touch. Match of the Day host and Leicester fan Gary Lineker holds his thumbs up in celebration after the Foxes got the famous win Over 6,000 Leicester supporters were ecstatic after watching their side win the FA Cup for the first time in their history Supporters wave scarves and rejoice after Leicester upset the bookmakers' favourites to win the FA Cup on SaturdayThree minutes before the break, Leicester went close again when Luke Thomas, who had been outstanding on the left with his energy and pace and a steady supply of curling passes into the inside left channel, whipped a free kick into the box. Soyuncu stole in front of his marker and tried to glance it past Kepa Arrizabalaga but his contact was too heavy and the ball flew wide.On the stroke of the interval, Vardy, who has been struggling for form, missed another chance to give Leicester the advantage. When Youri Tielemans drifted a ball into the box, Vardy got between Silva and James ten yards out but could only get the faintest touch on the ball and it flew harmlessly wide. The half ended without either side having managed a shot on target.But then, midway through the second half, came the explosion of joy. Chelsea tried to play the ball out of defence but Reece James’ pass was deflected by Ayoze Perez who threw himself at the ball. It cannoned off his knee, then his arm, and was worked to Tielemans midway inside the Chelsea half. Timo Werner sees an effort on goal blocked by the imperious Wesley Fofana in the first half on Saturday afternoon Cesar Azpilicueta was unable to direct a header goalwards in the best chance of the first half at Wembley Stadium Mason Mount saw a superb strike tipped wide by Kasper Schmeichel to deny the Englishman a goal in the showpiece eventTielemans ran towards goal and the Chelsea defenders backed off him until he was 25 yards out. At that point, he unleashed a right foot drive that rose and rose and evaded the desperate, flailing, clawing left hand of Arrizabalaga and bulged the back of the net. Tielemans set off towards the Leicester fans and slid on his knees in front of them while the rest of us prayed this moment was not ruined by VAR.Chelsea pressed for an equaliser. A header from substitute Ben Chilwell was kept out by a combination of the post and Schmeichel’s right hand and then the Leicester goalkeeper produced his wonder-save in the dying minutes to write his own name alongside men like Montgomerie in Wembley folklore.The drama was still not over. In the last minute, Chilwell raced forward on to a long ball and got to it before Schmeichel. It ran loose and as Soyuncu tried to hack it clear, it rebounded off substitute Wes Morgan and into the net. Chelsea celebrated wildly in front of their fans but VAR showed that Chilwell was offside when the ball was played through to him. VAR has never been cheered more wildly in a stadium in all its existence. It was that kind of night. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next PLAYER RATINGS: Kasper Schmeichel pulls-off HUGE saves to... Leicester's FA Cup win is fitting in a month that saw the...

Long roads have been walked by people like Jamie Vardy but Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has made it to Wembley seemingly on fast forward.\nAnd then there is Brendan Rodgers. This is not his first Wembley final. He won the Championship play-offs there with Swansea in 2011. But an FA Cup final feels different and is different, the type of day that can remind people how far they have come.","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Adam Shergold"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/05/15/09/43016614-0-image-a-15_1621066714429.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"PICTURES: It’s getting busier on Wembley Way with two hours until kick-off","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-4","dateModified":"2021-05-15T15:17:09+01:00","datePublished":"2021-05-15T15:17:09+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Adam Shergold"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/05/15/15/1621088213415_lc_galleryImage_LONDON_ENGLAND_MAY_15_Fan.JPG"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"THE NUMBERS GAME: Comparing Vardy and Werner ahead of the big game","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-3","dateModified":"2021-05-15T15:15:54+01:00","datePublished":"2021-05-15T15:15:54+01:00","articleBody":"Jamie Vardy and Timo Werner have endured a vastly contrasting week leading up to the FA Cup final, in a season in which the duo appear to have experienced rather different fortunes.\nVardy, 34, will have played in all 13 FA Cup rounds come Saturday and continues to demonstrate all the energy of a 28-year-old striker in the prime of his career in a side edging towards Champions League qualification after the win at Manchester United in midweek.\nMeanwhile, German counterpart Werner has been on the end of yet more stinging criticism, with former Arsenal stars Ian Wright and Paul Merson both labelling him 'lazy', causing Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to launch a staunch defence of his compatriot.","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Adam Shergold"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/05/15/09/43016614-0-image-a-15_1621066714429.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"Wembley looks a picture ahead of the Cup final","url":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html#lc-id-2","dateModified":"2021-05-15T15:14:11+01:00","datePublished":"2021-05-15T15:14:11+01:00","articleBody":"","author":{"@type":"Person","name":"Adam Shergold"},"mainEntityOfPage":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html","@type":"WebPage"},"publisher":{"@id":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk#publisher"},"image":"https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/05/15/09/43016614-0-image-a-15_1621066714429.jpg"},{"@type":"BlogPosting","headline":"We’re back at Wembley!

Every single Chelsea player is on the pitch watching on.  19:20 Jubilation for the Fantastic Foxes 19:19 Kasper Schmeichel: It is an amazing feeling I'm so happy, I cant begin to describe it. I want to say hello to my kids and wife at home, it is a shame we cant all be here today but what a day. Amazing, undescribable. it is what dreams are made of. We talked about wanting to win trophies and the grit and determination today. so proud of everybody. Everybody has been sensational. That's why when you work together and do things properly you have that belief that you can achieve.  Youri, wow, what a finish. I didn't even dare to celebrate it because of VAR but yeah, what can I say. Today is an amazing day and we will enjoy it thoroughly but we are training again tomorrow. Tomorrow we can't really think about it anymore because they will want revenge. 19:12 The players are running towards their fans who are basking in the glory at Wembley. Fantastic scenes and extraordinary for Leicester supporters who have longed for this trophy. 19:09 FULL TIME - LEICESTER HAVE WON THE FA CUP! Michael Oliver blows his whistle and the game is over - Leicester City are FA Cup winners for the first time in their history! Brendan Rodgers lets out a roar of celebration and hugs his technical staff, what a huge achievement for the Northern Irishman.  The fans are crying in the stands and so is Jamie Vardy, who put in a mammoth performance up front.  They had to ride their luck in the end with a couple of outstanding saves from Kasper Schmichel and a controversial VAR decision, but it's Youri Tielemans' strike that has won it and what a strike it was - worthy of winning any FA Cup! A special, special day for this club in front of their returning fans.  19:07 90+4 mins: Vardy wins a corner and shows a toothy grin to the Leicester supporters behind goal. They are so close.  19:06 90+3 mins: Soyuncu tries to run the clock down after falling to the turf following a collision with Giroud. An equaliser is slowly drifting away from Chelsea, who look heartbroken by that VAR decision. 19:04 90+1 min: Five minutes for Leicester to hang on.  19:03 GOAL DISALLOWED! THE GOAL HAS BEEN DISALLOWED! Replays show that Ben Chilwell was marginally offside when the ball was played by Silva, and Oliver signals that the goal will not count. A lifeline for Leicester 19:02 GOAL CHELSEA! Chelsea have equalised! Thiago Silva picks out the run of Ben Chilwell, who lands the ball perfectly on his foot. The full back taps the ball past Schmeichel and Wes Morgan fails to clear and the ball is in the back of the net! But hold on.. VAR 19:01 87 mins: Big chance Chelsea! And a world class save from Schmiechel. A cross is headed to Mount who hits the ball so sweetly and looks destined to hit the back of the net but Schmeichel gets a finger tip to the ball and saves! Mount cannot believe it! 18:59 86 mins: Tielemans' corner is too strong for those in the box. Choudhury's follow-up cross doesn't find a Leicester man and goes behind for a goal kick.  18:58 85 mins: Misunderstanding between Giroud and Mount sees the Frenchman send the ball out of play for a throw-in.  Brilliant work from Vardy sees Thiago Silva scamper the ball out for a Leicester corner after being put under strong pressure by the dogged striker. 18:56 83 mins: Rudiger again looks to strike from range and he gets it all wrong and blazes high and wide. A sign of impatience from Chelsea. 18:55 82 mins: Final change for Chelsea. Giroud is on for Werner. This will be a real test for Leicester's back three now, who have sent on Wes Morgan and Choudhury for Luke Thomas and Perez. 18:51 78 mins: Chance Chelsea! Kante sends a delightful ball to the back post for Chilwell, his header looks destined for the bottom corner but Schmeichel is across brilliantly to tip wide.  The subsequent corner is lifted away by Fofana.  18:50 77 mins: Free kick Chelsea on the right after a foul on Hudson-Odoi. James sends the cross into the box but Fofana is there again to head away. 18:50 76 mins: Luke Thomas is okay to continue after Leicester's medical team undertake all the necessary medical checks.  18:49 75 mins: The game is stopped after a clash of heads between Azpilicueta and Thomas. Tuchel is set to make another double change. Havertz replaces Jorginho. Hudson-Odoi is on for Azpilicueta. 18:46 72 mins: Chelsea corner after Ndidi turned behind a Pulisic cross. Chelsea trying to make something happen but have been met by the brick walls of Fofana and Soyuncu. The corner is cleared all the way back to Kepa.  18:43 Tielamans thunderbolt lights up the FA Cup final 18:41 68 mins: There is a cacophony of noise coming from the Leicester end now. They are 25 minutes or so away from a famous victory. Replays of the goal show that Perez did not handle the ball in the build up. Both coaches make subs now. For Leicester, Iheanacho is off for Maddison. For Chelsea, Pulisic and Chilwell are on for Ziyech and Alonso. 18:39 65 mins: Ziyech tries to emulate Tielemans' effort but his strike takes a deflection behind for a corner. They haven't got going this second half and need this wake up call. Corner is cleared by Fofana. 18:36 GOAL LEICESTER! Leicester are ahead in the FA Cup final! And this will go down as one of the FA Cup's greatest strikes. Perez cuts out a forward pass from Christensen and Tielemans latches onto it. 30 yards out from goal the Belgian shoots from range and rifles the ball into the top corner leaving Kepa with no chance. A special goal for a special game! 18:36 63 mins: Chelsea enjoy a foray forward as Kante drives upfield and plays the ball to Azpilicueta, but the captain's ball into the box is poor and Schmeichel collects. 18:34 61 mins: Albrighton forces another corner as Leicester fans roar their side on, those players are certainly responding. Can they make this good spell count? A short corner is played and the opportunity is wasted. 18:33 Half an hour remaining, who will break the deadlock? 18:29 56 mins: Iheanacho plays the ball back to Tielemans who fizzes in a wicked ball towards Vardy but James is alert to the danger and turns behind for a corner. James clears the initial corner but it is played back out to Tielemans whose cross fails to find a man in maroon to the ooos of the Leicester fans. 18:27 54 mins: Chance Chelsea! And we have the first shot on target of the game. Jorginho slots in Kante on the right channel. He finds Alonso at the back post but the Spaniard cannot direct his header either side of Schmeichel who saves. 18:25 52 mins: Chelsea win a free kick after Tielemans fouls Jorginho as Rodgers is seen giving James Maddison instructions on the sideline. Expect him to be introduced at some point. 18:24 50 mins: Albrighton looks for an early ball into Vardy but Kepa is out to clear ahead of the striker. Chelsea attack down the other end but Tielemans executes a great tackle on Werner.  18:22 48 mins: Fofana misreads a long ball and gives Werner a chance to get away, the German plays in Mount down the left but the young Frenchman makes up for his slight error and wins a goal kick for his side. 18:20 47 mins: Iheanacho looks to bundle his way through a couple of Chelsea challenges but the Blues end up winning a throw in on the far side. 18:19 We are back under way! Both managers have given the players their instructions and we are back under way for the second half at Wembley. The rain has gone away and now the sun is out in London, So, who is going to step up and be the hero this afternoon? 18:10 Nothing to separate the sides at the break 18:04 HALF TIME: Chelsea 0-0 Leicester The corner is belted away by Jamie Vardy and Oliver blows for half time. Neither side separated at the break after a cagey opening 45 minutes. Not a single shot on target from either side tells the story of the half! Tense. 18:03 45+2 mins: Soyuncu harries well to stop Mount crossing but concedes a corner. Chelsea coming on strong as the half nears its end.  18:01 45+1 min: Two minutes of added time, as Tielemans picks out Jamie Vardy with a cross but he glances wide. 18:00 45 mins: James' corner is overhit and goes behind for a goal kick. Werner looks to be in a bit of pain here but as half time approaches he will hope to make it to the break. 17:59 44 mins: Albrighton gives the ball away in his own half and Werner latches onto it. He drives at Fofana but he skews his shot wide, having taken a touch off Fofana. Chelsea corner. 17:58 43 mins: Soyuncu gets to the ball first again. This time Thomas delivers towards the front post but the Turk can't get the direction right and it goes wide of goal.  17:58 42 mins: Perez wins a free kick after Jorginho goes in late on the Spaniard. Another chance for the Foxes to send the ball into the box now.  17:56 40 mins: A clearance from Alonso finds Ziyech on the right. He plays in Werner whose shot is blocked well by Fofana. The German tries to rescue possession of the ball but he goes in late on Thomas and goes into the book for his troubles. 17:53 38 mins: Leicester fans are rallying around their side now after Ndidi lands a crunching tackle on Mount to break up play and stop a Chelsea attack. Better from the Foxes as we near half time.  17:51 35 mins: First booking of the game as Fofana goes into the book for a late challenge on Werner. It's not the first time a Leicester player has gone through the back of the German. 17:50 34 mins: Mount is free on the left but his cross is overhit and misses the Chelsea players queuing in the box.  17:49 33 mins: Rodgers makes his first change of the game. Albrighton replaces Evans.  17:48 32 mins: Evans looks in trouble here. Rodgers wanted the 'brain' of his defence in his back three today but he doesn't appear to be fully recovered from a pre-existing injury. Terribly sad for the Northern Irishman as he limps off the pitch and waves to the Leicester fans. 17:47 Goalless at Wembley after half an hour 17:45 30 mins: Huge chance Chelsea! Evans clears the initial corner but it is recycled by the Blues. The ball falls to Thiago Silva who crosses to Azpilicueta who is free at the back post but fails to direct the ball goalwards. 17:43 28 mins: Werner picks up the ball from Kante and drives at Leicester's retreating defence. With options left and right, the German shoots but blazes his effort over the bar. A waste. Kante attempts to hook a cross into the box but Soyuncu blocks behind for a corner. 17:41 26 mins: Tielemans finds some space between Chelsea's midfield and defence and attempts an audacious strike from range but Thiago Silva blocks well. 17:40 24 mins: The corner is curled in but Schmeichel takes command to come out and catch the ball.  17:39 23 mins: Chance Chelsea! Mount drives forward towards the D, fires a shot at goal with his left foot but it takes a deflection for a corner. 17:38 22 mins: The rain is pouring down on Wembley now, uncharacteristic for an FA Cup final! 17:36 21 mins: Tielemans takes and Soyuncu rises highest to meet the ball, but he can't keep his effort down and it rises over the crossbar. Mount fires a shot on goal, it takes a deflection off Evans and falls just behind the onrushing Ziyech. Leicester clear. 17:35 20 mins: Thiago Silva penalised for a handball and Leicester win a free kick on the right hand side of Chelsea's defensive third. Chance to send the ball in. Tielemans standing over it. 17:33 18 mins: Evans gives a free kick away just beyond the half way line after going through the back of Timo Werner. The German has started brightly. 17:32 16 mins: Chance Leicester! Fofana plays the ball down the right flank and Castagne has the beating of Marcos Alonso. The Belgian picks out Vardy on the penalty spot but the veteran's strike is blocked by James. 17:30 15 mins: Rudiger picks up the ball inside Chelsea's attacking third and set his sights on goal, but slices it well wide.  17:29 13 mins: Ziyech sends a ball into the box but it fails to find a Chelsea man and the ball runs out of play on the far side. 17:26 10 mins: Thomas releases Vardy down the left and it's game on between James and Vardy. The defender gets across to muscle his countryman off the ball. That is going to be a good battle. 17:23 8 mins: Another corner for Chelsea after Mount flicks the ball against Soyuncu's thigh and behind. Looks like James is playing as a right centre half today, perhaps to quell the threat of Vardy. Ziyech's delivery is cleared at the back post, James sends it back in and Leicester clear once more.  17:21 6 mins: Chelsea enjoy a really nice spell of possession, moving it well in the Leicester half. Azpilicueta's cross is eventually blocked behind for a corner by Thomas.  Reece James' delivery is cleared with ease.  17:19 3 mins: Shaky start from Soyuncu, he takes a big swing at the ball but slices it horribly. Fortunately it falls into the direction of Luke Thomas who cleans up for the Turk. Vardy now works his way down the left but his cross finds Kepa.  17:18 2 mins: Werner is again found on the right, this time by Ziyech, but his cross again fails to find a man in blue. Chelsea are definitely targeting Soyuncu's side of that back three. 17:17 1 min: Timo Werner is immediately unleashed down the right, he gets a ball into the box but it is directed straight at Kasper Schmeichel. 17:16 KICK OFF - THE FA CUP FINAL IS UNDER WAY! All the pre-match formalities are done and all that's left is the football. The players kneel in support of anti-racism, to muted boos, before Michael Oliver blows his whistle to get us under way. Chelsea have donned their new snazzy home kit today, while Leicester are in their burgundy away strip.  17:14 The national anthem has been sung and all that's left now is for the pitch to be cleared before kick off.

A few days later Mount was on the bench. Tuchel loved how Mount took him to task over early selection snub Tuchel loved Mount's reaction - delivered directly and on the spot, from the heart rather than the result of any outside influence and sticking up for himself and his team-mates.

Leicester’s boss aiming to land that big prize in England IAN LADYMAN: Traditionally the FA Cup final has been about the journey. From first round to last. Up Wembley Way with the TV cameras on board. Then up the steps, hopefully to collect a winner’s medal. This year’s version is a little different. The season is not yet over, for example. Saturday’s finalists, Chelsea and Leicester City, meet again in the Premier League on Tuesday and that feels strange. But some things do not change. Long roads have been walked by people like Jamie Vardy but Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has made it to Wembley seemingly on fast forward. And then there is Brendan Rodgers. This is not his first Wembley final. He won the Championship play-offs there with Swansea in 2011. But an FA Cup final feels different and is different, the type of day that can remind people how far they have come. From Waitrose to Wembley... now Rodgers wants to bag the big prize Traditionally the FA Cup final has been about the journey. From first round to last. Up Wembley Way with the TV cameras on board. Then up the steps, hopefully to collect a winner's medal. Mail Online 15:17 PICTURES: It’s getting busier on Wembley Way with two hours until kick-off 15:15 THE NUMBERS GAME: Comparing Vardy and Werner ahead of the big game Jamie Vardy and Timo Werner have endured a vastly contrasting week leading up to the FA Cup final, in a season in which the duo appear to have experienced rather different fortunes. Vardy, 34, will have played in all 13 FA Cup rounds come Saturday and continues to demonstrate all the energy of a 28-year-old striker in the prime of his career in a side edging towards Champions League qualification after the win at Manchester United in midweek. Meanwhile, German counterpart Werner has been on the end of yet more stinging criticism, with former Arsenal stars Ian Wright and Paul Merson both labelling him 'lazy', causing Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to launch a staunch defence of his compatriot. Will Jamie Vardy or Timo Werner come out on top in FA Cup final? THE NUMBERS GAME - KISHAN VAGHELA: Jamie Vardy and Timo Werner have endured a vastly contrasting week leading up to the 140th FA Cup final, which Leicester and Chelsea will contest.

Delighted fans arrive ahead of the Cup final Delighted fans flocked to Wembley on Saturday with over 20,000 set to watch the FA Cup final between Leicester City and Chelsea. Fans from Leicester who'd made the trip sported their team's blue colours, with some in fancy dress fox costumes in honour of the club's nickname. Others sported silver tinfoil replicas of the FA Cup as they smiled for pictures while making the hallowed walk down Wembley Way. The on and off rain showers couldn't dampen the enthusiasm. 21,000 fans watch Wembley FA Cup final between Chelsea and Leicester English football's showpiece occasion is the latest of a series of Government pilot events to return fans to sporting events as the UK continues to follow its roadmap out of lockdown. Mail Online 15:05 A Blue Riband event and blue ribbons on the Cup It is always the showpiece occasion of the English football calendar and this year’s FA Cup final is just that little bit more special. The fact 21,000 spectators will be inside Wembley today to watch Chelsea play Leicester City is hopefully a positive sign that life will soon be back to normal after the Covid-19 pandemic. How fortunate those fans are to be here today to witness what should be an excellent final between two of the most impressive teams in the Premier League right now. It’s a fifth FA Cup final in Leicester’s history - and a first since 1969 - and they’re still waiting for their first triumph. Chelsea have had rather more success. They’re attempting to lift the trophy for the ninth time in their illustrious history. Either way, we know blue ribbons will be on the famous trophy later on this evening. Welcome along to our live coverage. There’s plenty of build-up for you ahead of the 5.15pm kick-off at the national stadium and full live commentary of the game. {"id":"9579523","channel":"/sport","pageUrl":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9579523/Chelsea-vs-Leicester-FA-Cup-final-2020-21-Live-Result.html","status":"running","greenBox":{"body":""},"modifiedOrder":1} 0 0 if (!window.LiveCommentary) window.LiveCommentary = {}; window.LiveCommentary.commentaryConf = JSON.parse('{"publicNodeHost":"livecommentary.dailymail.co.uk/apps/livecommentary_public","websocketNodeHost":"https://livecomjoy.dailymail.co.uk/apps/livecommentary_public","startTime":1574520460,"appVersion":3,"frontEndHostOverride":"www.dailymail.co.uk","dmWebsiteOrigin":"https://www.dailymail.co.uk","pushMissingPostsOnReconnect":false}');
