Instagram / Chelsea FC / FA Cup match: Chelsea FC – Leicester City The hosts worked for less than a quarter of an hour for the first goal. In the 14th minute, Chelsea players enjoyed a good opening of the match thanks to a shot by Marc Cucurella. The defender entered the Leicester City penalty area and seemed to be unnoticed behind the opponents’ backs. The pass was so good that it was necessary to hit Jakub Stolarczyk’s goal from close range.

The Pole showed off in the 26th minute, when he saved Raheem Sterling’s shot from the penalty spot. Jakub Stolarczyk saved the team after he was clearly cut out by a sliding tackle in the Englishman’s sixteen. The injured player took it upon himself to take the penalty, but he shot a flat shot into the legs of the goalkeeper who was sliding on the pitch. The hosts also failed to make a rebound and the score remained 1-0.

The 2-0 goal for Chelsea looked similar to the first one. The hosts did not despair after wasting a penalty kick, and Cole Palmer fired a shot from close range from the edge of the penalty area. The Leicester defense fell asleep and Jakub Stolarczyk had little chance to stop the ball.

Leicester’s situation became very difficult as they suffered a two-goal loss at the Premier League club’s stadium. However, the hosts decided to help make up for the losses. In the 52nd minute, Axel Disasi scored an absurd own goal when he tried to pass the ball from the wing to his own goalkeeper. In the 63rd minute, Stephy Mavididi tied the score 2-2 with a shot at the end of the individual rally.

In the 72nd minute, the Foxes’ defense made a mistake, which resulted in a foul by Callum Doyle. His foul on a Chelsea player who was in a clear position led to a red card. The guests had to cope with ten players at Stamford Bridge. They didn’t manage to cope, because in extra time there were goals scored, making it 4:2 for the favorite. Nicolas Jackson scored from close range at the end of a combination attack, and Noni Madueke scored on a counterattack.
