It is FA Cup final day, one of the greatest occasions on the sporting calendar and as Chelsea and Leicester City gear up to take each other on in one of the world's greatest and most historic cup competitions, we've taken a look back through the history books to put together an irritatingly difficult quiz. Ten questions, to see how far you can go in the competition. Will you make it all the way to Wembley Way and up those famous steps?

The Sportsman is incredibly proud of our close ties to to the FA Cup. On July 20, 1871 at the offices of The Sportsman newspaper in London The FA Cup was created and the greatest knockout competition the game has ever seen, which would pit the best in the game with the humble heroes, was born.

If you want to read exactly how the FA Cup was created in our offices, you can do so here - but this weekend is the pinnacle of the 2020/21 edition of the tournament. Over a century of history and testing ties this season have seen Leicester and Chelsea as the last two standing. Thomas Tuchel's side defeated favourites Manchester City in the semi-finals, while Leicester beat Southampton with the aim of winning the first FA Cup in the club's history. 

Reckon you know your winners and losers? Do you know the iconic moments that Steven Gerrard, Keith Houchen and Dave Beasant produced? Obviously, we wouldn't make it that easy, so here are ten difficult questions down below for you to get your teeth stuck into ahead of the FA Cup final.
