Leicester have lost to Chelsea after extra-time in the final FA Cup quarter-final. The sides played out a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes.
Chelsea will go on to join Manchester United, Tottenham and Southampton in the semi-final of a tournament that represents the last chance of silverware for the club.
The tie did require the video assistant referee late in the game, after Cesc Fàbregas seemed to accuse Jamie Vardy of making contact with his face. VAR deemed the altercation did not require further punishment and play went on, although a replay of the incident was not shown.
VAR not seeing anything wrong with Vardy punching Fabregas in the face is everything you need to know.
It doesnt work when its run by Cowards. pic.twitter.com/wEsRRHAC4O

Refs are just so dim they can't even get VAR right. How can Fabregas just accuse Vardy of elbowing him and the ref stops the game to check it.

Fabregas complains to the referee that Vardy hit him in the face.
Over to VAR. Nothing.
Play on, poppet.

How exactly did Jamie Vardy just get away with trying to punch Fabregas, also baffles me how these commentators havnt even mentioned it properly/show a replay! #LEICHE

We may finally see Fabregas/Vardy incident at half-time/full time, but it's inexplicable they haven't so far

While VAR is not shown in the ground, it is an unusual feature that not even the television viewer sees the alternative angles.
As for the game, Pedro gave Chelsea the lead in extra-time after Kasper Schmeichel was caught in no-mans land.
