It was a dire affair in the FA Cup final against Leicester City at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening, as chances were scarce in the game.

It only had to take a moment of brilliance from Youri Tielemans to separate the two teams, as his long range shot was the only recognised goal in that game.

Three days after, the two teams will meet again, and this time at Stamford Bridge, and it’s a very important game as the two teams fight for a place in the top four.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he’s expecting another tight and tactical battle at the Bridge.

Rodgers said in his press conference: “I think it will be tactically the same, two teams super organised, a tight game. That was the beauty of it.

“Maybe neutrals are looking for a 5-4, but two teams organised, and moments of quality from Youri [Tielemans] and Kasper [Schmeichel]. ‘If it’s the same tomorrow night, I’ll be very pleased.”
