- Chelsea’s record signing Kai Havertz scored the winner on Saturday
- Kevin de Bruyne walked off injured, with him went Man City’s chances
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea completed their incredible return to form as they were crowned the Champions League winners in Porto on Saturday. Kai Havertz scored the only goal in a pulsating final as Premier League winners Manchester City were denied their first-ever win in Europea’s major cup competition.
Chelsea’s record signing was their star on the big night as Havertz scored his first Champions League goal — a winner in the 42nd minute after managing to get to the other end of a fine pass from Mason Mount, who is showcasing his prowess as one of England’s finest playmakers going around.
For Thomas Tuchel, it’s been a see-saw ride in the last 12 months as he was sacked by Paris Saint-Germain after they lost the last year’s final to Bayern Munich. He joined Chelsea in January and scripted a remarkable turnaround after Chelsea were struggling under Frank Lampard.
