Chelsea pulled out an astonish performance in 2021 UEFA Champions League finals, beating Manchester City 1-0 in an entertaining or English affair.
This is their second Champions League trophy since 2012.
Mason Mount’s through ball split open the City defence leaving Havertz to run through on goal before he rounded Ederson and rolled the ball into the net to give his side the lead before half-time.
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola told BT Sport:
“It’s an exceptional season we’ve had. It’s an honour to be here. In the second half we were brilliant and brave.
But they defend so strong and are so fast on the counter-attack. We will come back maybe one day again. I did what was best for the team [on selection].
“He [Kevin de Bruyne] was injured but this happens. In these kind of games, we need everyone. The ambition now is to the rest, and then game by game we will come back and hopefully return to this stage in the future.”
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel speaking to BT Sport:
“To share it with everybody is incredible. We made it. Wow. I don’t know what to feel.
“I was so grateful to arrive a second time [in the final]. I felt different. We were somehow… You could feel it getting closer.
“The [players] were determined to win this. We wanted to be a stone in their shoe.
We encouraged everybody to step up and step out, to be more brave and create dangerous counter-attacks.”
Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell told BT Sport:
“We fought so hard today. We knew it would be a tough game. The second half… we fought for our lives to get to this moment, to have this feeling. This is what I came to Chelsea for. It’s a dream come true.
“The key was to get tight and be aggressive. I was getting tired as the game went on but when the Champions League is up for grabs, you don’t really tire.
“Everyone defended for their lives. We’ve won the Champions League so I wouldn’t even care how we played!”
Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount told BT Sport:
“I can’t put it into words. It’s impossible. I just mentioned then that I’ve played in two finals for Chelsea and we lost them both. The way that hurt… It’s all I’ve dreamt winning a trophy with Chelsea. To go all the way in the Champions League. We played some tough teams. We are in a final and we won it. It’s such a special occasion. At this moment in time, we’re the best team in the world. You can’t take that away from us!
“What a team Man City are. You have seen what they did in the Premier League. It was such a tough game. We got a goal and defended the whole game. We left everything on the line and we won. What can I say? Loads of staff that have come through…
It is unbelievable. My dad has just come down from the stands. I burst into tears seeing him. I thank my family for everything.
“To be at this moment now going into the Euros… Some of the boys from City will be meeting up with us and I know that will be hard. I spoke to them, they deserved to be here. It’s tough for them but hopefully next season we’ll be pushing for the Premier League as well.”
