FA Cup – Semi finals
Manchester City’s shot at winning all trophies available to them was destroyed by Chelsea in the semifinal of the FA Cup.
Chelsea and Leicester City will be the two teams contesting for the 2021 FA Cup title after both teams won their semifinal tie through a 55th minute goal in a one goal game.
Chelsea – 8x winners of the competition with their recent title coming in 2018.
Leicester City – have never won the competition.
We expected Leicester City to prevail against Southampton because of how their domestic seasons have panned out, but it ended up being a win by a slimmer margin than probably expected.
Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal in the 55th minute aws all Leicester City needed to get over Southampton.
