Friday Facts: Chelsea in the FA Cup

13/04/2018

Hiya BridgeKids!

The FA Cup is one of football’s most famous trophies, and Chelsea have long been a part of its history!

With Chelsea facing Southampton in the FA Cup semi-finals soon, I thought it would be a good time to share some of my favourite Chelsea FA Cup facts!

1. In total, Chelsea have won 7 FA Cup finals!

2. The player that’s won the most FA Cups ever is ex-Chelsea player Ashley Cole! He’s won it seven times! Three times with Arsenal, and four with the Blues!

3. Chelsea reached their first FA Cup final over a hundred years ago in 1915! They didn’t win their first cup until 1970 though, when the beat Leeds United at Old Trafford!

4. Chelsea completed their first ever league cup double (when a team wins the FA cup and the Premier League in the same season) in 2009. A Didier Drogba free-kick secured the FA Cup win against Portsmouth.

5. One of the FA Cup’s most iconic goals ever was when Chelsea’s Roberto Di Matteo scored a wonder strike in the 42 second of the 1997 final! At the time, it was the fastest ever goal in an FA Cup final at Wembley.

KTBFFH!
