Chelsea

‘Football with fans is everything’- reaction as supporters return for the FA Cup final


There were 21,000 fans inside Wembley Stadium to watch the FA Cup final. And their presence was a welcome one. The match saw Youri Tielemans strike a stunning winner as Leicester City lifted the FA Cup for the first time with a 1-0 win over Chelsea despite unbelievable late VAR drama.

There had been 8,000 fans at the League Cup final between Tottenham and Manchester City in late April but the difference in atmosphere was palpable and those in attendance were the warm recipients of praise.
