In what was considered to be a tough game, the first half of the crucial encounter climaxed with a goalless draw. During the 55' minute, Kelechi Iheneacho was at the right place at the right to find the net from a rebound. Leicester won 1-0 against Sutton. The Nigerian striker has so far scored 4 goals in the FA Cup posing a big threat to Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel has an uphill to climb against Brendan Rodgers' side. The blues have only managed one win of their last 6 head to head competitive matches against Leicester with 4 draws and 2 defeats. Evidently, it will be not a walk away match for Tuchel, Leicester having eliminated top contenders like Manchester United from the competition.
Brendan Rodgers who has made a notable trend of performance in England is well experienced in winning trophies. He is the former Celtic manager who won 2 Scottish Premiership titles, 2 Scottish Cups and 3 Scottish League Cups. The Northern Ireland will certainly make a good display against Chelsea in the FA Cup finals.
