    Tuchel feels wrath of Chelsea fans as Leicester clinch first-ever FA Cup triumph

    Thomas Tuchel feels the wrath of the Chelsea faithful as Leicester defy the odds in first-ever FA Cup triumph

     

    Chelsea’s supporters have flooded to social media this evening, to take aim at manager Thomas Tuchel on the back of their side’s defeat in the FA Cup final.

    Tielemans decides it

    The Blues of course made the trip to Wembley a short time ago, for the most historic fixture of the English season.

    After getting the better of competition favourites Manchester City in the last round, Chelsea faced off with Leicester, going in search of their first piece of silverware under the watch of January arrival Tuchel.

    The capital giants actually headed into proceedings in search of a bounce-back result, having seen their top-4 ambitions dealt a blow in a rare defeat at the hands of Arsenal during the week.

    When all was said and done at Wembley, though, Leicester went on to upset the odds, dealing Chelsea a 2nd defeat in the space of four days.

    A tense 90 minutes were eventually decided by a solitary strike, just beyond the hour mark.

    A concerted spell of pressure on the part of the Foxes culminated in Youri Tielemans driving home a wonderful strike from 25 yards, to send the Leicester support in attendance into frenzied celebrations:

    Chelsea, from here, threw on the offensive cavalry, as Thomas Tuchel opted to introduce all of Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi to the fray.

    And the Pensioners even appeared to have bagged their much-needed equaliser just minutes from time, when Ben Chilwell’s deflected effort somehow made its way beyond the superb Kasper Schmeichel.

    VAR, though, swiftly intervened, ruling the goal out for the most marginal of offside calls imaginable:

    From here, a stout Leicester backline, manned by the flawless pairing of Wesley Fofana and Caglar Soyuncu, stood tall, to ensure a historic night for all associated with Brendan Rodgers’ men.

    A first ever triumph in the competition for the King Power outfit, and one they will not soon forget…

    Tuchel targeted

    For Chelsea, on the other hand, concerns begin to mount.

    After looking close to unstoppable across stretches in recent weeks, the Blues have now fallen to back-to-back defeats, with confidence dipping at the worst possible time ahead of a Champions League final showdown with Manchester City at the end of the month.

    And, as outlined above, on the back of their side’s latest costly slip-up, the Chelsea faithful have since aimed their frustrations in the direction of one man – Thomas Tuchel:
