Chelsea: Champions Of Europe

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea has won the UEFA Champions League 2021 title in a win against Manchester City.

The blues won the English Affair final with a single 42nd minute goal from Kai Havertz.

It was an undoubtedly thrilling game, with both sides seemingly having equal chances of scoring and killing the game in the first half. 

Tuchel’s side were dealt a blow in the 39th minute with defender Thiago Silva having to leave after a groin injury. All odds seemed to be against them. However, a 42nd minute attack led by Mason Mount and Havertz saw Chelsea secure the lead.

Similarly, the second started with both teams creating (and squandering) great scoring opportunities. 

Largely an attacking side, Pep Guardiola’s team upped the ante, pushing Chelsea’s defense hard. The blues were equally up to the task, absorbing the pressure as it came

City would be dealt a blow in the 60th minute after Kevin De Bryune was forced to leave. This was following a collision with Antonio Rudiger

Soon after, Sergio Aguero came in place of Raheem Sterling. The forward made several unsuccessful scoring attempts in his last club appearance.

This is Chelsea’s second ever Champions League title after the 2012 final where they won 4-3 on penalties. The club has seen impressive performances since Thomas Tuchel took over, thereby justifying the board’s decision to part with club legend Frank Lampard.

 

Congratulations Chelsea.
