Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Leicester City in the final of the FA Cup, as the Blues were handed their second defeat in a row.

A second half strike from Youri Tielemans was enough for the Foxes to win the game, as VAR cancelled out a late Ben Chilwell’s strike.

Speaking after the game Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta admitted that the team was disappointed in the defeat.

The Chelsea skipper also revealed that the Blues must return to winning ways, starting with Tuesday’s Premier League clash against Leicester City.

Azpilicueta said: “It’s hard to take but in less than three days we are back and playing again, so we have to recover and go for it.

“Tuesday is a massive game for our Champions League qualification. We are in a position where everything is in our hands and now is the moment, the last week of the Premier League.

“We want to be in the top four and qualify for the Champions League and we have to show it on the pitch.”

Meanwhile, Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey drew the wrath of the Blues fans when he threw away the Chelsea pennant during the Foxes celebration after beating Chelsea.
