Betting prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Leicester City

Chelsea are hoping to win the first of potentially two major pieces of silverware this season as they take on Leicester City in the FA Cup Final.

Aside from their recent defeat to Arsenal, the Blues have been in really impressive form under Thomas Tuchel having reached the Champions League Final and sat in the top four.

Leicester City were able to leapfrog Chelsea and move back into third with a win over Manchester United during midweek.

However, Brendan Rodgers’ side have dropped points against both Southampton and Newcastle recently and head into Saturday’s final in somewhat mixed form.

The Foxes are bidding to win their first-ever FA Cup having fallen short at the final stage on four occasions.

Chelsea vs Leicester City: Match preview

Chelsea will be looking to secure a ninth FA Cup trophy on Saturday.

They defeated Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 at Wembley in the semis.

Saturday will also mark just two weeks until the Champions League Final where they once again take on Pep Guardiola’s side.

On Wednesday, they suffered a shock defeat to Arsenal putting a slight dent in their top-four hopes.

The Blues were looking to follow up on their impressive win over Man City last Saturday.

However, their defeat and Liverpool beating Man United means Tuchel’s side could head into the final two matches just one point above fifth.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have a game in hand over Chelsea and if they beat Burnley they will significantly close the gap on the west London club.

Leicester hoping for first FA Cup triumph

Leicester City are bidding to win their first-ever FA Cup.

The Foxes have competed in four finals losing all of them.

In the Premier League, the Midlands club looked like they were once again going to throw away their Champions League spot.

Last Friday, they suffered a shock defeat to Newcastle United losing 4-2 at home.

However, they swiftly bounced back with a win at Old Trafford.

Rodgers’ side lined up against a much weakened United side and they managed to walk out 2-1 winners.

The win lifts them above Saturday’s opponents Chelsea and back in third.

Chelsea team news vs Leicester City

Mateo Kovacic is a major doubt for the cup final as he recovers from a thigh injury.

He missed the defeat to Arsenal and is likely to also miss Saturday’s clash with Leicester.

Andreas Christensen is another player who is unlikely to feature on the weekend.

The Dane could make the bench but is unlikely to be thrown straight back into the line-up.

N’Golo Kante is hopeful of being available to feature in the cup final.

Tuchel’s favoured midfield pairing has been Kovacic and Kante and he will be keen to have at least one back for the final.

Billy Gilmour and Jorginho started in midfield against Arsenal.

Leicester City team news vs Chelsea

Jonny Evans is likely to hand Leicester a major injury boost by returning for the cup final.

The defender has missed the last two matches with an ankle injury.

He is expected to return straight into the starting line-up at Wembley.

James Justin, Harvey Barnes and Wes Morgan all remain sidelined.

Rodgers changed to a 4-4-2 at Old Trafford following their 4-2 defeat to Newcastle.
