On May 15, Chelsea will be contesting our fourth FA Cup final in the last five years, and looking to win it for the ninth time in our history. Our opponents will be contesting their first FA Cup final in over 50 years, and looking to win it for the first time ever. Leicester City have reached this famous final four times in their history, but not once since 1969.
In fact, they are the team who have contested the most FA Cup finals without winning a single one. An in further bad omens for them, they have never beaten Chelsea in an FA Cup match, in any round.
Everyone knows Leicester City hold record for most FA Cup Finals without winning it but record against Chelsea in #FACup is even worse— FA Cup Factfile (@FACupFactfile) April 18, 2021
1920 Chelsea WON
1946 Chelsea WON (over 2 legs)
1997 Chelsea WON (in replay)
2000 Chelsea WON
2012 Chelsea WON
2018 Chelsea WON
2020 Chelsea WON
Of course, all such streaks tend to come to an end eventually and there would be no better time for the Foxes to make it so. They beat Southampton 1-0 earlier today thanks to a second-half goal from Kelechi Iheanacho to secure their spot in the final.
Meanwhile, Thomas Tuchel wil be looking to win the first of hopefully two trophies this season, and many more beyond.
