Both Brendan Rogers and Thomas Tuchel are chasing their first pieces of silverware with their respective clubs. The similarities don’t stop there though, as both are also fighting to secure a top four spot come the end of the season.
Since arriving at the King Power Stadium from Celtic Park back in 2019, Brendan Rogers has done a stellar job. His Leicester City side narrowly missed out on a top four spot following a poor run of form after project restart.
The Foxes have used that as a springboard this season and look very likely to secure a Champions League spot this time around. On top of that, Brendan Rogers has lead his side to their first FA Cup final since 1969. Rogers became used to winning silverware up in Glasgow, and so will be very keen to bring Leicetser their first trophy since the 2016 Premier League fairytale.
Chelsea’s decision to sack Frank Lampard back in January was widely criticised by fans, pundits and football professionals alike. However, it quickly became clear that this was another masterstroke from Roman Abramovic - whose trigger happy managerial hiring and firing policy has brought Chelsea plenty of success since he bought the West London Club in the late 00s.
Tuchel has gotten the best out of what is undoubtedly a strong Chelsea squad, and has time and time again proven his tactical wizardry. Having been in the job just over four months, Tuchel has lead Chelsea to two cup finals and looks on track to secure a top four spot, despite losing to Arsenal on Wednesday night.

Both of these clubs have two very different histories when it comes to FA Cup finals. Chelsea have the joint third most FA Cup final victories in the history of the competitions alongside Tottenham, having won the prestigious trophy a total of eight times. Their last win was in the 2017/18 season when they beat Manchester United 1-0.
Leicester’s FA Cup final history contains a lot more heartache and glorious failure. The Foxes have been to four FA Cup finals in the 100+ year history of the competition - and they’ve lost them all. Leicester’s last FA Cup final was all the way back in 1969, when they lost 1-0 against Manchester City in front of a Wembley crowd exceeding 100,000.
The Foxes will be hoping that manager Brendan Rogers’ cup final record in Scotland is the history that will repeat itself, rather the club’s history of heartache.
