Leicester became champion again in England, after this feat Claudio Ranieri achieved in the 2015-2016 season by consecrating the FA Cup.
The one led by Brendan Rodgers beat Chelsea 1-0 with a goal from outside the penalty area by Yuri Tillmans and won the 140th edition of the oldest tournament in the world.
When the match was over, left-back Ben Chilwell -X-Leicester- scored the equalizer, but the VAR eliminated it from the lead.
Leicester reached the final match after beating Southampton 1-0 in the semi-finals, while the “Blues” had defeated Pep Guardiola, Manchester City, his opponent in the Champions League final on May 29, with the same result.
This is the first time that the “Foxes” have won this trophy, which is added to the Premier League obtained in 2016 and the three League Cups they have already earned on their record.
