Brendan Rodgers saluted his fantastic Foxes after their historic FA Cup victory. Leicester lifted the trophy for the first time after Youri Tielemans’ second-half stunner beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley.

Tielemans settled a tight game which saw late drama with two fine saves from Kasper Schmeichel and former Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell having a goal ruled out by VAR.

Leicester had lost all of their previous four finals, their last coming in 1969, but finally won the trophy on Saturday.
