History Made As Leicester City Wins First FA Cup Title

History was made at Wembley tonight as Leicester City won their first FA Cup title after losing four finals in the past.

But it was heartbreak for Chelsea as they lost back-to-back FA Cup finals.

In the end, Tielemans' stunner in the 63rd minute decided the outcome of the summit clash.

Keeper Schmeichel made couple of stunning saves at the dying minutes to deny Chelsea an equaliser.

To add more drama, VAR disallowed Chilwell's stoppage time goal as the Chelsea player was just offside

Leicester City are the 44th different side to win the FA Cup, and the first first-time winners of the competition since Wigan Athletic in 2013.

Chelsea were poor today, no excuses. Yes, the VAR call late on was incredibly tight and will feel incredibly unfair, but the Blues just didn't turn up today.

They will need to be much, much better when the two sides meet on Tuesday in the Premier League.
