Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Chelsea and Leicester City go head to head in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium in what should be the final pilot test match before the regular return of fans from May 17. The Blues have been producing brilliant displays in all competitions ever since Thomas Tuchel took over the reins, and the Champions League finalists head into the FA Cup decider following a 2-1 win over Man City in EPL. Mateo Kovacic is likely to miss the game with injury, while important defender Andreas Christensen should recover in time to face the Foxes.
Brendan Rodgers’ men set up a meeting with Chelsea by beating Southampton in the semis, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the Wembley Stadium showdown. Chelsea seem to be more of a team than Leicester City, and that is the main reason why home win should be considered. All Morgan, Justin, and Barnes are sidelined with injuries for the nominal visitors.
