Watch Chelsea disbelief as VAR disallows late equaliser to hand Leicester the FA Cup in dramatic Wembley scenes
CHELSEA were denied an equaliser in the final moments of Saturday's FA Cup final after VAR spotted an incredibly tight offside call.
The Foxes led 1-0 after a Youri Tielemans screamer at Wembley, which itself had to be checked for a potential infringement.
But Chelsea appeared to have denied them a first-ever FA Cup crown with the help of some penalty-area pinball.
Ben Chilwell was picked out on the left flank and bombed into the area, picking out cross at the far-post.
Leicester's Caglar Soyuncu cleared the ball – only for it to ping into the net as Wes Morgan rushed back alongside the tumbling Chilwell.
The Blues defender celebrated a mad 89th-minute equaliser which was then ruled out in equally stunning scenes.
VAR checked Chilwell against Soyuncu for a potential offside and judged the Chelsea man to be millimetres offside.
Referee Michael Oliver then called back the play, sparking huge celebrations from the Leicester fans at Wembley.
The despair was clear on Chelsea faces and Thomas Tuchel's team failed to muster a fresh response as the game drifted away.
And the final whistle sent Foxes fans into raptures with a crowd of 21,000 allowed into Wembley.
Leicester supporters in particular had witnessed four FA Cup final defeats before the club's first triumph on Saturday.
