Chelsea vs Leicester FA Cup final match preview

Chelsea will appear in their 15th FA Cup final, having won the coveted trophy eight times. But they did lose last year's decider, played behind closed doors at Wembley, 2-1 to Arsenal. It is their fourth appearance in the FA Cup final over the past five years (one win, two losses).

The Foxes haven't appeared in an FA Cup final since 1969 and have lost all four deciders in which they have appeared. It is the most appearances a side has made in the final of this famous competition without lifting the trophy.

Given the history of these sides in the FA Cup, we're leaning towards a Chelsea victory here. Factor in the Blues' confidence-boosting victory over EPL champions Manchester City last weekend and we think Thomas Tuchel's side will win 3-1.
