BETTING PREVIEW: FA CUP FINAL

Leicester City will be out for a maiden FA Cup title when they face Chelsea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The Foxes warmed up for the showdown with a win over Manchester United albeit that the Red Devils fielded 10 changes.

Chelsea, on the other hand, were shocked by London rivals 1-0 at home during the week.

Now, all eyes head to the home of English football as Leicester City and Chelsea square off for the FA Cup.

The Foxes advanced past Southampton while the Blues fended off Manchester City. While Chelsea have lifted the trophy eight times, their opposition have never done so after four tries. It is Leicester’s first final appearance since 1969.

The match represents a clash between the league’s 3rd ranked team and the one ranked fourth. Both have a healthy lead in the domestic scene, so their top four ambitions should be put aside for this contest.

Chelsea’s pedigree in the competition speaks for itself so it will be up to Leicester to spring a surprise. Historically, their visits to Wembley have not yielded much success; 10 of their previous 15 matches ended in defeat.

James Justin and Harvey Barnes remain out alongside Wes Morgan but in defence, the Foxes should be able to rely on Jonny Evans.

James Maddison will likely start and should help Jamie Vardy break his drought in the competition this season.

The main talking points for Chelsea surround their midfield. Both Mateo Kovacic  and N’Golo Kante are doubtful starters for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

At the back, Antonio Rudiger is likely to move into the starting lineup with Timo Werner leading the line.

Suggested bet: Chelsea to win 2-1 at 8.4
