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.

Mail Online 15:55 These fans wasting no time getting inside Wembley 15:46 Thomas Tuchel loved the way Mason Mount took him to task over early selection snub... the midfielder has now become a player the Chelsea boss knows he can trust ADRIAN KAJUMBA: When Thomas Tuchel announced the plans for his first game in charge as Chelsea head coach Mason Mount would have been forgiven for thinking ‘here we go again.’ The previous game Mount was on a high, Frank Lampard making him captain against Luton for what turned out to be the final game of his reign. 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.

The midfielder with a twin engine loves a big occasion. He was man of the match in both legs of their Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid. Chelsea’s second goal in their 2-0 home win over Real was down to Kante as he sprinted in anticipation of winning a second ball. He won possession, Mason Mount scored and Chelsea were confirmed as Champions League finalists.

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.

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.

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.
