Chelsea Have Won The Champions League After A 1-0 Win Over Manchester City

Chelsea have won their second Champions League title in a decade after defeating Manchester City 1-0 in Porto.

The English rivals faced off in a third different competition this season and it was Thomas Tuchel's men who came out on top.

Despite City being favourites going into the game, Chelsea had a number of chances early on through Timo Werner who failed to convert.

However, a brilliant ball from Mason Mount found Kai Havertz just before half time, who skipped past Ederson and tapped into an open net.

Phil Foden had a chance to equalise moments later before Antonio Rudiger produced a remarkable tackle.

Thiago Silva was forced off with an injury after jumping with Foden for a header late in the first half.

City lined up without an orthodox striker on the pitch while also not playing a holding midfielder.

Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero both started on the bench as did Fernandinho and Rodri.

Kevin De Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan were preferred and it didn't really click for Pep Guardiola's men.

De Bruyne was captain for the evening and saw his evening end early after being clattered by Rudiger.

Taken off in tears, the Belgian international looked to have a black eye as he left the pitch.

City were limited in terms of shots on target but Chelsea defended admirably throughout.

They appealed for a penalty after the ball appeared to hit Reece James' arm, but VAR deemed it to not be enough.

Christian Pulisic had a glorious chance to grab a second for Chelsea on the counter but dinked it just wide.

Relentless City pressure saw Jesus and Aguero both come on but the Blues' backline managed to hold out.

Chelsea will now play Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup in August.
