Chelsea and Leicester City will do battle for FA Cup glory on Saturday afternoon when they meet at Wembley Stadium.
Although both teams have enjoyed strong Premier League seasons, their respective successes in this competition could not be more juxtaposed with the Blues having lifted it eight times compared to the Foxes’ zero.
Indeed, this will mark Leicester’s fifth appearance in the FA Cup final and their first since 1969, but bet365 make them 16/5 (4.20) outsiders to win the game in normal time with Chelsea 10/11 (1.91) favourites.
Using bet365’s Bet Builder tool, which allows bettors to put multiple selections from the same game into one bet, our tipster has built an 110/1 (101.0) play for the showpiece on Saturday.
The 110/1 (111.0) consists of Hakim Ziyech to score, Cesar Azpilicueta to be booked and Youri Tielemans to be booked.
Ziyech has struggled to make a consistent run in his debut Chelsea season, starting only 22 games in all competitions, but he has made a name in this competition.
The Moroccan winger scored in both the last two rounds of the FA Cup, including the winner in the semi-finals against Manchester City, and having also struck in the Premier League last weekend, looks a worthy candidate to increase his tally at Wembley.
Defensive discipline has been a feature of Chelsea since Thomas Tuchel took over in January, with no team picking up fewer yellow cards in the Premier League than the 14 given to Blues players.
They have also been shown only two in the FA Cup and one of those was to Azpilicueta, which came in the semi-final, whilst the defender was also cautioned in last season’s final when his side lost 2-1 to Arsenal.
Finally, Leicester midfielder Tielemans has found his name in the referee’s book on nine occasions this season – including once in the quarter-finals of this competition.
The Belgian has also conceded more fouls than any other Foxes player except Wilfred Ndidi, tallying 50 in total in all competitions ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup final.
