Chelsea and Leicester players will be hoping to write their names in the history books when they meet at Wembley for Saturday’s FA Cup final.
Timo Werner has endured an up-and-down first season at Stamford Bridge, helping his side to two major finals but scoring a relatively disappointing 12 goals in all competitions.
However, he can be backed at 5/1 (6.00) with bet365 to make himself a hero by opening the scoring in the final, or 7/4 (2.75) to strike anytime for just the third time since mid-February.
Christian Pulisic scored the opener in last season’s FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal and is priced at 21/10 (3.10) to mark the occasion with a goal once again this time out.
Mason Mount has been one of the standout stars of the team’s revival under Thomas Tuchel, and is available at 9/4 (3.25) to cap a successful breakthrough campaign with a memorable goal.
While Chelsea have shared their goals around this season, the Foxes have been fairly reliant on their prolific front pair of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.
Despite a recent run of just one goal from the last 16 matches in all competitions, Vardy is his side’s 13/2 (7.50) favourite to break the deadlock in their first cup final since 1969, on offer at 9/4 (3.25) to score anytime.
However, Iheanacho looks a far better bet at those same 9/4 (3.25) odds considering he has scored 14 times in the last 12 fixtures – failing to fire just twice during that spell.

That price looks particularly appealing given his record in this season’s competition, hitting the net four times in his last three appearances.
The last of James Maddison’s 11 goals for the season came back in mid-February, although he can be backed at generous 9/2 (5.50) odds to make up for lost time by getting on a target against a team he scored past in Leicester’s 2-0 Premier League win at the King Power Stadium.
