Leicester City are FA Cup champions
Chelsea and Leicester City faced off on Saturday evening, in the FA Cup final.
The Foxes were aiming to clinch their first-ever FA Cup crown, whilst Chelsea were going in search of their first piece of silverware under Thomas Tuchel.
In the end, though, it was Leicester who emerged victorious at Wembley.
The tie proved a fairly close affair, with neither side, in truth, having been at their best.
However, the game was eventually decided by a simply stunning strike from Youri Tielemans just after the hour mark:

Tammy Abraham’s girlfriend is not happy
In the aftermath of the clash, much of the chatter from a Chelsea perspective has centered on Tammy Abraham.
Despite being reduced to a bit-part role under Thomas Tuchel, Abraham remains the Blues’ top-scorer in all competitions this season.
Nevertheless, the 23-year-old was completely omitted from the Chelsea matchday squad on Sunday.
This led to Abraham’s girlfriend taking to Instagram, to express her frustration with the club’s boss:
“How on earth do you make the decision to leave your top goal scorer out of the squad for a final?
“The same person who even scored the goals to actually qualify for this competition?
“It’s not making any sense whatsoever.”
