As one of the biggest gathering of supporters inside a stadium since the coronavirus pandemic began, and they were treated to incredible drama in the 140th FA Cup final.
Leicester City fans had the perfect view as Youri Tielemans fired a brilliant shot into the top corner of the goal at their end on 63 minutes. It was a goal worthy of winning any final and capped a superb performance from the Belgian.
Although It had been a game of few clear chances up until that point but Kasper Schmeichel was then forced into two fantastic saves at the other end, pushing a Chilwell header onto the post and then pulling off another wonderful stop to deny Mason Mount, as Chelsea desperately searched for a response.
However, Former Leicester defender Ben Chilwell, thought he’d done just that, when Caglar Soyuncu’s clearance went in off him, but VAR rightly spotted the Chelsea man had strayed marginally offside in the build-up.
Leicester, who lost key defender Jonny Evans to injury midway through the first half, held on and, 52 years after their last appearance in a FA Cup final, were able to hold the trophy aloft for the first time, adding another remarkable chapter to their story, following their 2015/16 Premier League triumph.
There will be little time for the Foxes to celebrate the achievement, though, with Chelsea hosting Leicester on Tuesday, live on Sky Sports, a crucial contest in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League.
