While Liverpool will be the biggest beneficiary of any outcome between these two teams, provided it beats Burnley. Leicester, who won the Cup for the first time in its history after four unsuccessful attempts, the last of which was in 1969, has 66 points against 64 for Chelsea and 63 for Liverpool. In the event of a tie between two teams, the goal difference is ruled. After German coach Thomas Tuchel reached the final of the England Cup and the Champions League, and his rise to the rankings, Chelsea suffered for the first time two consecutive defeats led by Tuchel, against Arsenal in the League 0 -1, then against Leicester 0 -1 in the Cup final.
