Everyone is all agog to see the FA cup final showdown today at the historic Wembley stadium between Chelsea and Leicester city. With Chelsea losing the trophy to its London rivals – Arsenal, last year, they are certainly keen on clinching the FA cup trophy after a disappointing final last year.
With an ambitious coach like Tuchel in the building, Chelsea already look like favourites on paper but it would be equally dangerous to rule out the Leicester city side.
With an impressive run this season and the terrific goal scoring form of Nigerian superstar, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leicester city are equally favourites too. “Senior man” as he is fondly called has been instrumental to Leicester success this season alongside fellow countryman, Wilfred Ndidi. Many Nigerians and non- Chelsea fans would certainly be rooting for Iheanacho and Ndidi to wave their magic wand and lead Leicester to FA cup glory.
For Chelsea gaffer, Tuchel, it seems to be a special moment for him. Chelsea FC blogs reports via Twitter says: Thomas Tuchel: “My kids are too young to be in the stadium but my wife will be there which is very nice. It’s nice they are in the country, a big reward. My wife is a very good spectator and huge luck so I’m happy it’s possible for her to be in the stadium.”
Chelsea certainly looks like the more confident side particularly because they are champions league finalists. Adam Newson tweeted: No signs of pressure being felt within the Chelsea squad from the training pics today. Quite the opposite, in fact. #FACupfinal
Yeah, Chelsea might have all the quality but you cannot certainly take the quality of Leicester. They have what it takes to cause an upset today because in football, never say never.
Who will emerge champion at Wembley?
