Ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea, Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has warned his team “have earned the right to be in the final”.

Rodgers said: “We have earned the right to be in the final and we will arrive with an opportunity to make our own history. We feel we’re in with a chance and if we can play to our level we have a great chance.

“We have watched it (the Cup final) all through our lives, to be able to lead Leicester out for the first time in 50-odd years will be a real privilege for me.

“These weeks you always have to stay calm. This is a game where you can create an incredible legacy, you write your own stories in these games.

“We have exactly the same preparation (as other games). The consequence of the game is greater than others but you don’t need to magnify an FA Cup final to raise any levels of anxiety.”
