Chelsea take on Leicester this weekend, in the final of the FA Cup and Paddy Power have a selection of Power Prices available for the big game!
The second final of the season takes place this weekend with Chelsea and Leicester going head to head in the FA Cup final. Both sides weren’t expected to get here, with Chelsea beating Man City and Leicester beating Man United along the way.
For Chelsea, this is familiar territory. They have been to three of the last four finals, losing to Arsenal last year. However, they have won this competition eight times, the most recent of which was against Man United in 2018.
Leicester on the other hand haven’t been to a domestic final since the League Cup final in 2000. They have been to the final of the FA Cup four times, losing all four, the most recent of which was in 1969!
Tuchel’s side are the favourite for the game on Saturday. They are 20/23 to win inside 90 minutes and 4/9 to lift the cup. Leicester on the other hand, are 3/1 inside 90 and 9/5 to lift the cup, with Paddy Power. It’ll be a close game, but Tuchel will have one eye on the Champions League final and finishing in the top four, so may even rest some players still!
FA Cup Final Power Prices
Mason Mount 1 or more shots on target from outside the box – 3/1
The Chelsea midfield is in fine form at the minute, especially in front of goal. He is not shy when it comes to taking a shot on and at 3/1 it’s a very interesting price. Leicester defend very well and as we saw with Chelsea in midweek against Arsenal they can get frustrated and start shooting on sight. Mount registered three shots on target in that game also.
Jamie Vardy to have 1 or more shots on target in each half – 7/1
Vardy hasn’t been in the best goal-scoring form of late, but this doesn’t discourage him. He likes to play on the shoulder of the last defender and with players like Maddison and Tielemans behind him, you’d expect him to see a lot of the ball for a striker. One shot on target each is definitely achievable for Vardy, who will fancy his pace over any of the Chelsea backline.
Kelechi Iheanacho to score first – 8/1
The Nigerian striker is in the form of his life. He has 18 goals so far this season in all competitions, with 13 goals in his last 12 games. He is the main man when it comes to scoring goals for Leicester at the moment and for his to score first at 8/1, is a very good price. With Leicester having a lot of options going forward, this will give Iheanacho more space and time on the ball as Chelsea can’t just pinpoint one man!
