The Chelsea vs. Leicester City live stream is here as a pivotal moment in the FA Cup, where teams are battling it out for a top four spot in England's Premier League and with it, a berth in next year's UEFA Champions League. But before that's settled, there's another matter for the Blues and Foxes to sort out — which one will lift this year's FA Cup.

The Chelsea vs. Leicester City FA Cup final this weekend figures to be a tight affair, even if Chelsea enters the match as favorites. Chelsea, after all, just advanced to this year's Champions League Final, and since Thomas Tuchel took over, the club has lost only two matches. (Of course, one of those happened a few days ago when Arsenal beat Chelsea.)

Meanwhile, after a strong season for the most part, Leicester City finds itself struggling to get over the line. Before beating a depleted Manchester United in a mid-week match, Leicester had gone winless in two matches against lesser competition. It could well be that Brendan Rodgers' side had its eyes on this FA Cup final against Chelsea, though.

A win for Chelsea means its first FA Cup since 2018, after last year's loss in the final. Leicester have never won the FA Cup, having last appeared in the final 52 years ago. So this Chelsea vs. Leicester City FA Cup final has a lot at stake. Here's where to catch a live stream of the match.
