Champions League: Chelsea beat Manchester City

Chelsea defeated Manchester City once again as they clinched the Champions League trophy for the first time since 2012.

The new Champions of Europe did what they have done best for Pep Guardiola’s side beating them in all fixtures following the signing of Thomas Tuchel in January.

German Kai Havertz gave the Blues the lead before half time when he met Mason Mount assist before rounding up Ederson to earn themselves the only goal of the fixture.

Manchester City who stepped in as the favorites to win will for sure be questioned following the decision by former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola to switch his players for the night in Porto.

Guardiola’s decision did not worry Chelsea who effortless defended as missed a couple of good chances through Timo Werner in the first half. Pulisic who came in a substitute also missed another opportunity in the second half.

Sergio Aguero came in the second half to replace Kevin de Bryune who sustained an injury for his final match for City but it did not end well for the next Barcelona striker.

It was however a moment of class for Thomas Tuchel who completed a three match unbeaten streak against the City lining up the most disciplined squad for the night.

N’golo Kante who won the man of the match produced a world class display as he defended off all attacks in his position and so was Antonio Rudiger who played the central defense.
