Chelsea take on Leicester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley today.

Both clubs are on course for a Champions League finish in the Premier League, which would represent a triumph for Brendan Rodgers given his budget and for Thomas Tuchel given the place he found Chelsea when he took the job.

Now they have the chance to add silverware to that achievement.

Kepa Arrizabalaga is set to start for Chelsea. “He starts the FA Cup final, and we thought it was a good idea to give him the game before,” said Tuchel.

“We trust him and he deserves it, that is the basis of why we put him in the line-up. He deserves it. He is so close and good in training. We wanted to give him some minutes and take both games together.
