Chelsea 1 Man City 0 LIVE REACTION: Kai Havertz the Blues hero as Tuchel masterminds stunning Champions League triumph

CHELSEA have won the Champions League after a Thomas Tuchel masterclass against Man City.

The Blues flew out of the blocks in the first half and could have been ahead early doors before Kai Havertz finally broke the deadlock just before the break.

Pep Guardiola’s men pushed hard in the second half, but were unable to break down the Blue wall and City remain without that illusive Champions League triumph.

  • Final score: Chelsea 1-0 Man City
  • Goalscorers: Havertz 42'

    CHIL-LING

    Ben Chilwell said he was stuck admiring his medal as he made his dream come true.

    We knew it was going to be a tough game and we knew me and Reece Hames had to be on our game.
    This is why I came to Chelsea. It's a dream come true

    BABY KANTE

    Another outstanding effort and performance from N'Golo Kante.

    He deservedly earned a carry from Kurt Zouma!

    FRUITY LANGUAGE

    Kai Havertz drops an F-bomb when discussing the game.

    An emotional Havertz hadn't scored in his Champions League career – not a bad first goal.

    I don't give a f***. We just won the Champions League!

    90+7' WOW! That was the chance!

    It falls to Mahrez on the edge of the box and he scuffs a shot at goal.

    Mendy is flat-footed as it curls towards goal and goes a couple of inches over the bar!!

    90+6' Jesus with a great turn to get into the area and Christensen follows him to win the ball and get it clear.

    Throw-in for Walker again.

    CHELSEA 1-0 MAN CITY

    90+4' Jesus has a run at Chilwell but can't get through and it's a throw-in again.

    Walker lines up another long one and this time the referee blows for a free-kick to Chelsea for a push on Rudiger.

    90+3' Kante beats Fernandinho to the ball and wins a free kick on halfway.

    89' WHAT A CHANCE FOR THE EQUALISER!

    Dias somehow finds himself on the left wing and slides a tantalising ball across the face of goal which nobody can get too.

    Mahrez does collect it at the back post and squares it to Foden who sees his shot blocked by a sliding Christensen!

  • Craig Mahood

    CHELSEA 1-0 MAN CITY

    88' Jesus is really wound up as he goes after Chilwell now but it's no free kick this time.

    City win a defensive throw-in but need the ball up the other end!

  • Craig Mahood

    CHELSEA 1-0 MAN CITY

    87' Havertz has the ball on the right and Jesus needlessly slides in to wipe him out.

    Free kick Chelsea and a YELLOW CARD for the Man City striker.

    Havertz happy to waste a bit of time to get to his feet too.

    86' Walker with a zinger of a cross from deep and Aguero and Foden can't quite reach it as it drifts behind for a goal kick.

    Thomas Tuchel waves his arms as he tries to gee up the crowd to see his men over the line!

    CHELSEA 1-0 MAN CITY

    85' Reece James with his first mistake of the night, caught under a cross-field switch.

    Aguero takes a touch and tries to chip a ball to the back post but Mendy stretches well to collect.

    That was a chance.

  • Craig Mahood

    CHELSEA 1-0 MAN CITY

    83' Fernandinho with a slide on Rudiger but it's play on Chelsea.

    Kovacic then works a one-two round Fernandinho and is blocked off.

    The Brazilian escapes a yellow again – he's the master at that!
