- WIN £50,000 with Dream Team Euros
CHELSEA have suffered a shock defeat in the FA Cup final as Leicester recorded a famous win at Wembley.
Youri Tielemans’ 63rd-minute goal was enough to clinch the trophy for the Foxes after Ben Chilwell’s deflected equaliser was disallowed for offside by VAR.

But did any Chelsea players cover themselves in glory? And did any of them have a shocker?
Here, Simon Phillips delivers his Chelsea player ratings…
Wasn’t tested a large amount with both teams not looking to give much away. Couldn’t have saved the goal, but Mendy would have purely because of his height.
He was moved to centre back tonight to deal with the pace of Vardy and did well to deal with him, showing good strength and pace. One of Chelsea’s better players on the night.
As always, super calm, cool and collective on the ball and commanding Chelsea’s back line. He might have moved quicker to block the Leicester shot they scored from, but other than that he was good.
He was a little shaky early on but soon settled into the game and used his experience and pace well. He was missing a bit in the second half and wasn’t his usual influential self that we have seen under Tuchel.

Playing at right wing back was a surprise, but he did a decent job. Removed for Hudson-Odoi in the second half, a change that should have come earlier.
He was a welcome return to the Chelsea line up and his presence was immediately noticed in the middle of the park. Was the only real Chelsea player other than Mount who looked like making something happen.
Better performance than against Arsenal in the week, but he was a little erratic at times and too slow in moving the ball.
Decent contribution on the left from Alonso – and he looked to try and be a threat in attack as well – but overall couldn’t affect anything.
Some decent moves and creative sparks from Ziyech, but he often looked a bit too slow on the ball and not strong enough.
Chelsea’s brightest spark. He was full of drive, flicks and direct play on the ball, the only real Chelsea attacker that looked like doing any real damage in the first half.
Didn’t look confident at all and needed to get his head up a lot more and show some composure on the ball. His pace was a nuisance for Leicester but not a lot more unfortunately.

Couldn’t do anything to affect the game despite trying hard. Came on too late.
Almost scored and was, at least, up for winning the game.
Bought on far too late to make an impact.
Same as Havertz, too little too late.
