Chelsea are now officially European Champion, as they comfortably silenced Manchester city at Estádio do Dragão tonight. And, the 2020-2021 campaign is very worthwhile and successful, for the Thomas Tuchel’s men.
As a matter of fact, all the Blues players are over the moon at Porto’s stadium, because it ain’t easy to win the most precious trophy in Europe top-5 leagues. And, it’s indeed a long journey for Chelsea to achieve such success, despite their ups and downs performance.
Apparently, we all know the abilities and capabilities of the Pep Guardiola’s men, as they are literally the most dangerous and strongest in the world, at the moment. However, the German manager have defeated them in all their meetings this season, three times to be precise.
Of course, all Chelsea’s players displayed flawlessly, the likes Kai Havertz who scored the only goal, Mason Mount with an assist, N’Golo Kante dominating the midfield and Antonio Rüdiger controlling the defense line.
In other words, the Blues wouldn’t be able to win the Champions League, if not for Frank Lampard who started it with a massive unbeaten run in the group-stage. The club legend also deserves some credits.
Chelsea’s academy players like Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Recce James, Billy Gilmour, Tino Anjorin are all blessed under Tuchel. Because, they have won Champions League at their young ages.
