ESPN to carry FA Cup final

ESPN to provide exclusive coverage of FA Cup final between Chelsea and Leicester City

May 12, 2021 By Michelle Bonsu
ESPN will provide exclusive coverage and other highlights of the upcoming FA Cup final featuring Chelsea and Leicester City on May 16th.

At long last, the latest edition of the FA Cup will get underway, with Chelsea and Leicester City battling it out to lift the coveted trophy. For the Blues, this could be the first of two trophies new coach Thomas Tuchel could earn since taking over from Frank Lampard this January, and should he win it, it would be the perfect precursor just a fortnight before taking on Manchester City in a highly-anticipated all-English Champions League final in Istanbul on May 29th.

Chelsea also came painfully close to winning it last season, only to be beaten in the final by bitter rivals Arsenal, and the London giants will be seeking to win their eighth title and first since 2018, when they defeated Manchester United.

Meanwhile, for Leicester City, victory here would be a long time coming, as the Foxes haven't been in a FA Cup final since 1969. Brendan Rodgers's men have had a solid campaign as they look to lock down a top four spot, but to date, Leicester City have never won this trophy. They've finished as runners-up on four occasions, and haven't won a trophy since their amazing Premier League title win under Claudio Ranieri during the 2015/2016 season.

It's set to be a highly entertaining encounter. Chelsea and Leicester sit in fourth and third respectively, and the Foxes beat the Blues 2-0 in their first meeting, so it's safe to say that Chelsea will want to repay the favor before the two sides are set to meet in the league once again on May 19th.

Fans in Australia will be able to watch the game thanks to ESPN, which will be showing this tie on Sunday, May 16th. If they can't wait for the re-play, which is at 12.30 PM AEST, they can certainly get up bright and early at 2 AM AEST to tune in to watch it live on ESPN.
