Manchester City vs Chelsea (0-1) | Full-match replay
BT Sport published this video item, entitled “Manchester City vs Chelsea (0-1) | UEFA Champions League Final | Full-match replay” -below is their description.
Chelsea lifted the UEFA Champions League trophy for the second time in a decade, defeating Manchester City 1-0 in a close encounter in Porto.
Mason Mount setup Kai Havertz for the 42nd minute goal which would prove decisive, in this all-blue, all-British final.
City, as often, dominated possession, but could only muster one shot on target in the 90 minutes. Chelsea produced more goal threat in what was a pretty cagey affair, featuring two strong sides who cancelled each other out. Man City were not helped by seeing their illustrious playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne leave the field injured in the second half, after a blow to the head, but were already chasing the game at this point, and had been failing to make a telling impact up until then.
N’golo Kante was imperious in the centre of Chelsea’s midfield; a performance which helped Chelsea’s recently joined manager, Thomas Tuchel, to avenge his defeat in the final of last year – when with PSG – and pick up his third win from three attempts against Pep Guardiola.
City will have to wait until another year to lift this elusive first UEFA Champions League trophy; and despite being Premier League champions for 2020/21, may consider their season’s end to be a touch disappointing after reaching the FA Cup Semi-Final (losing also to Chelsea) and this, the biggest final in world football, only to fall at the final hurdle.
Chelsea, who themselves just scraped qualification for the 2021/22 UCL, on the last day of this season in the Premier League, will be celebrating this crown for days and weeks to come.
