PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former England midfielder Joe Cole felt there "wasn't much in the game" following Chelsea's 1-0 defeat to Leicester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley yesterday evening. The Blues missed out on securing their first piece of silverware of the Thomas Tuchel era after Youri Tielemans' stunning 63rd minute winner sealed Leicester their very first FA Cup triumph in their history. The Belgian midfield unleashed a rocket of a shot into the top corner, sparking wild scenes behind the goal where the returning Leicester supporters were housed. Chelsea thought they had done enough to take the contest to extra time when former Foxes left-back Ben Chilwell netted an equaliser in the last minute of normal time, only for VAR to chalk it off for offside, leaving Leicester's supporters to celebrate as though they had doubled their advantage.

Therefore, it wasn't Chelsea's lack of effort or a willingness to win the game that was at fault, it was purely a case of being beaten by the better side on the day, as well as a shade of luck going in Leicester's favour. Assessing Chelsea's performance, former Blues midfield star Cole told BT Sport: "I do understand what he's [Tuchel] saying, I think it's clear Chelsea had the most possession, Schmeichel was the busier goalkeeper. "There wasn't much in the game, it wasn't a bad performance. What it was - it was moments. We had the VAR situation.

He's had two games where it hasn't gone right, two bad results - the next three games are crucial for the season. "You have to finish in the top-four if you're Chelsea, that is a prerogative, you need Champions League football. Then you've got the big one against Man City. "Man City are a better team than Chelsea at the moment - but as we've seen today in cup finals, anything can happen."

. "Of course, we are disappointed but we are not angry, it's not on our boys," admitted Tuchel. "Today we are simply unlucky. We have never hidden the fact that you need luck in this game to be able to win on this level.

"All the time you need momentum, little details and decision making, referee and sometimes with a shot like today. "We defended very, very well, were aggressive in counter-pressing, we didn't allow any counter-attack chances, no half-chances, and I was absolutely happy with the work-rate intensity. "But our decision-making was a bit too hectic, [we played] a bit too straight up front. "We wanted to force the solution too far, we had unnecessary ball losses and imprecise decision making. We created some two-against-two and two-against-three situations, that we couldn't do as well as we should have."
