Leicester beat Chelsea 1-0 in FA Cup final


Youri Tielemans has delivered a momentous strike to power Leicester City to their first-ever FA Cup triumph with a 1-0 victory over favourites Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

And even sweeter than the Belgian’s terrific 63rd minute goal for Leicester was the fact that they were able to enjoy Saturday’s historic triumph in front of thousands of their own fans.

In a dramatic game, the Foxes’ fans’ cheers rang around Wembley even more resoundingly in the dying moments when VAR denied Chelsea an 89th minute equaliser.

It was former Leicester defender Ben Chilwell’s cross that looked to have been deflected into his own net by veteran captain Wes Morgan, but replays detected an offside.

It ensured that, after four losing finals, Leicester could finally win world football’s oldest cup competition in the 140th final.
