A sole goal from Youri Tielemans proved enough for the Foxes to beat the Blues and seal the first FA Cup in their history.

Leicester City came out on top in what was a tightly-contested match as they beat Chelsea 1-0 to win the FA Cup.

20,000 fans were in attendance to watch the two shades of blue collide at Wembley, and they had to wait a while before seeing the ball roll into the back of the net.

It was Youri Tielemans who scored the opening and the only goal of the game three minutes after the hour-mark with a stunning strike. The Belgian midfielder unleashed a thunderous shot from 25 yards out into the top-left corner of the net, leaving Kepa Arrizabalaga with no chance.

The Foxes had a scare when it appeared Ben Chilwell had forced the game into extra-time with an equalizer in minute 88, but Chilwell’s goal was scraped off for offside on VAR review.
