That leaves all the room in the world for a tie after 90 minutes of action, making for a potentially nervous end to the game for fans of both teams.

Will the FA Cup final go to extra time or penalties?

This season’s FA Cup format has undergone some changes due to backlogs and coronavirus.

Replays have been scrapped to reassure teams competing under a hectic football schedule.

However, overtime has remained throughout this season’s competition.

So if Chelsea’s last clash with Leicester ends in a draw after 90 minutes, both teams will have at least 30 minutes left on the pitch.

As usual, penalties are only needed if the game is still a draw after the full 120 minutes.

There has been no overtime in the FA Cup final since 2016, when Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-1.

And the last time penalties were needed in the FA Cup final was in 2006 when Liverpool beat West Ham after a 3-3 draw.
