Chelsea lost the Fa cup title to Leicester city and it was the the fifth time for Leicester City to secure their first ever Fa cup Trophy, after having lost in their first four final apperances.
The upset victory marked Leicester first trophy since the magical league title season of 2015-16 and also the first trophy in English football for manager Brendan Rodgers.
Now comes the rematch, three days later, where there are different repercussions, but the stakes remain high.
The football clash will also take place in London, but this time at Chelsea‘s home ground, as the two clash in league play, with Champions League qualification on the line.
“We are disappointed and not angry with our performance from the boys, I think the performance is enough to win it,” said Blues boss Thomas Tuchel
“I think today we were unlucky and we’ve never hidden that we need to have that to win at this level. You need momentum, decision making, little details, the referee.”
Indeed, in a game with few scoring chances, everything has to go right in capitalizing on the ones that you do get. Now comes a quick rematch, so Chelsea will have to rapidly regroup.
