Double despair for Chelsea and Alisson in wonderland – Football Weekly


We start with the FA Cup final, as Leicester City lifted the trophy for the first time ever after Youri Tielemans’ wonder strike sunk Chelsea. Was this a moral victory for football after all of the Super League controversy earlier this season?

We then move on to another final defeat for the Blues, with Chelsea Women conceded four goals in 36 minutes to Barcelona Femení in the Champions League final. We examine exactly what went wrong for Emma Hayes’ side, and what the future potentially holds for them.

Finally, we round up the rest of the Premier League action, as Alisson saves Liverpool’s season with a 94th-minute header. We also discuss the upcoming play-offs, a crazy final league table in Turkey and read some of your emails.
