Head to Head

Saturday’s FA Cup final represents 119th meeting between Chelsea and Leicester in all competitions, with the Blues boasting 57 wins compared to 27 for the Foxes.

Chelsea dumped Leicester out of the FA Cup in last year’s quarter-finals, and they are unbeaten in nine previous meetings against the Foxes in the competition – winning seven and drawing two.

The quarter-final win represents the Blues’ only win against the Foxes in their last six attempts, though, as Lampard oversaw a 2-0 defeat to Leicester in January before being given the boot.

Predictions

Leicester City 1-2 Chelsea
Chelsea just could not find a way past Arsenal’s three-man defence on Wednesday night, and with Leicester set to deploy a similar system at Wembley, this should be a truly intriguing FA Cup final.

Leicester, and Rodgers in particular, command plenty of respect as they bid to win the FA Cup for the first time ever, but we think that the Foxes will just fall short as Chelsea get their hands on the crown.
