Thomas Tuchel will take his Chelsea team to his first final with the Blues, at Wembley on May 15

The oldest national competition in football reaches its climax this weekend as the FA Cup Final sees eight-time victors (and last year’s defeated finalists) Chelsea meet Leicester City at Wembley Stadium. Leicester are in English football's showpiece event for the first time since 1969, having never added the trophy to their cabinet previously. Chelsea, on the other hand, are the second most successful side of the tournament this century, having lifted the illustrious cup on six occasions since the turn of the millennium, with only Arsenal beating the Blues with seven in the twenty previous editions since 2000, ahead of the event on Saturday 15th May.

BettingOdds.com has now analysed the stats and facts behind every FA Cup Final of the 21st Century. There have been 52 goals scored in the 21 editions so far, with an average of 2.48 goals in each final. Part of our investigation has discovered that the most goals have appeared between the 61st and 75th minute of the final, accounting for 25% of all goals scored at the event. Aside from the English centre-forward, if you are a French centre midfielder sporting blue on the day, you have the strongest likelihood of banging in the goals in this period.
