Manchester City v Chelsea Live Commentary & Result, 29/05/2021, UEFA Champions League | OkeGoal

That’s all for today, goodbye! 

This is Chelsea’s first piece of silverware under Thomas Tuchel and only their second Champions League victory, last lifting the trophy in 2012. As for City, it just wasn’t their night and they couldn’t add to the EFL Cup and Premier League trophies that they’d already lifted this season.

CHELSEA WIN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE! Havertz’s first-half goal wins it for Chelsea after they beat Manchester City 1-0! Just before half-time, Havertz got in between City’s defenders to latch onto the ball and took it around the onrushing Ederson to put it into the empty net. Chelsea’s solid defence frustrated City throughout, though Mahrez did have a late chance to equalise, but he volleyed his effort just over the bar.

90′ + 7′ FULL-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 0-1 CHELSEA.

90′ + 6′ CLOSE! It’s a long throw-in from Walker on the right and Chelsea just can’t get their lines clear as Pulisic’s header falls for Mahrez on the edge of the box. He hits the shot on the volley and Mendy is completely wrong-footed but it sails just over the crossbar.

90′ + 4′ Tuchel is urging the fans to make more noise from the sidelines as Chelsea try and push forward again. Kante wins a free-kick on the halfway line, but the set-piece is put straight out for a City goal-kick by Azpilicueta.

90′ + 2′ Into the second of seven added minutes here and City are still throwing everything they have at Chelsea’s backline. They switch it out to Walker on the right and he swings another good cross into the box but Christensen is there to head it clear.

90′ GREAT CHANCE! It’s an excellent fizzed cross into the six-yard box by Dias on the left but everyone misses it. Chilwell slides in at the far post but can’t stop it from reaching Mahrez. He pulls it back for Foden in the middle, but the Chelsea defenders crowd around him and smother it.

Gabriel Jesus

Yellow Card

88′ Jesus’ frustration gets the better of him and he catches Havertz with a late challenge which earns him a yellow card.

86′ Walker floats a brilliant ball into the box after cutting inside from the right. It’s just ahead of Aguero so Foden throws himself forward to reach it but can’t get a touch at the far post on the stretch.

84′ Chelsea are still frustrating City with their compact shape and Ederson is forced to go long with his kick. James misses his clearance and it falls for Aguero, who tries to chip it towards the far post, but Mendy comes off his line to collect it.

82′ Chilwell steps up to take the free-kick he won after he was clipped by Walker and his floated cross is headed away by Dias. It falls for James, who tees up Jorginho, but he drags his shot well wide of the far post from outside the box.

80′ Third change for Chelsea now and it’s Mount that’s making way for Kovacic.

79′ City continue to dominate possession here but are still struggling to get in behind Chelsea. It’s switched out to Walker on the right, but Chilwell stays with him all the way and can’t even win a corner after his cross rebounds back off him before going out.

77′ Third change for Guardiola now and it’s Aguero that’s coming on for his final City appearance in place of Sterling.

76′ Chelsea are patiently moving the ball upfield and Mount links up well with Havertz down the right to open up some space through the middle. There’s no one in the box, so he decides to have a go himself, but drags it wide of the far post.

74′ Sterling pulls off the back of James to get onto Zinchenko’s throughball and he pulls it back to the near post from the byline for Gundogan. He can’t bring it under control and Chilwell is waiting behind him to clear it away from Jesus.

73′ PULISIC! Chelsea break quickly on the counter with Havertz driving through midfield and the City defenders can’t get close to him. He threads it through to Pulisic, who holds off Dias before chipping his shot over Ederson, but it bounces wide of the far post.

72′ City are still seeing a lot of the ball which means Chelsea are sitting deep and keeping their shape well. They work it out to Mahrez on the right and he whips another cross into the box, but Christensen is there to intercept it this time.

70′ Azpilicueta has gone down holding his knee now after he collided with Jesus when he tried to win the ball back. The medical team are quickly on to give him some treatment, but he’s quickly back to his feet and will be able to carry on.

68′ BLOCK! Foden does brilliantly to hold off Rudiger and poke the ball out to Mahrez on the right. He curls a great cross into the six-yard box and Jesus is waiting at the far post for a tap-in but Azpilicueta slides in to clear it over the crossbar.

66′ Chelsea are making a change now as well and it’s Werner that’s making way, with Pulisic on for him.

Fernandinho

Bernardo Silva

64′ Another change for City now and it’s Silva that’s going off for Fernandinho, while will see Gundogan move a little higher up the field.

63′ City don’t look as composed on the ball at the moment and their passing into the final third is letting them down. Gundogan tries to play in Foden down the left but James is there again for Chelsea to intercept it.

61′ VAR is having a check of the penalty incident while play carries on and are in agreement with the referee that the ball bounced off James’ chest before hitting his arm, so there will be no penalty to City.

60′ There are big shouts from the City players and fans for a penalty as they’re saying it hit James’ hand in the box. The referee had a good view of it and says it hit his chest first but that doesn’t stop City from crowding him to make their case.

Gabriel Jesus

K. De Bruyne

60′ De Bruyne is helped off the field and goes straight down the tunnel, with Jesus coming on to replace him.

59′ De Bruyne is still laid on the ground receiving treatment and the medical team aren’t taking any risks here. He has a black eye and it looks like he might have a problem with his neck, so he won’t be able to carry on.

57′ The referee helps Rudiger back to his feet before showing the defender a yellow card for blocking off De Bruyne’s run.

56′ A collision between De Bruyne and Rudiger has left both players down and holding their heads and the referee stops the game so they can receive some treatment. Rudiger is back on his feet, but De Bruyne is still down for City.

54′ James steps in to intercept another pass into Sterling and he plays an early throughball forward for Werner to chase. It looks like he’s in on goal, but Dias gets back quickly and times his tackle perfectly to take it away from the German.

52′ The last time a team came from behind to win their first-ever European Cup/Champions League final was Porto in 1987.

50′ It’s been a bright start from City in the second half and they’re keeping Chelsea penned back in their own half. Foden has switched out to the right and he whips a good cross into the near post, but there’s no one there for City so Mendy collects it.

48′ City have a free-kick on the left wing and it’s De Bruyne that swings the cross into the box. He can’t beat the first man though and Kante is there to clear the danger.

46′ Chelsea get us back underway for the second half!

Chelsea looked the stronger side in the first half and caused City a lot of problems every time they pushed forward. They were solid at the back as well and Tuchel will want more of the same. As for City, Guardiola will want to see a big improvement and might benefit from making a change as they’ve struggled to break Chelsea down at times.

Havertz’s goal gives Chelsea a 1-0 half-time lead over City in the Champions League final. In the 42nd minute, Havertz got in between the City defenders and knocked the ball past Ederson, who rushed out of his box, before he slotted it into the empty net. Werner had a couple of good chances as well but couldn’t find the target, while Sterling saw a shot saved by Mendy from a tight angle early on.

45′ + 4′ HALF-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 0-1 CHELSEA.

45′ + 3′ It’s a nervy moment at the back after Mendy dawdles on the ball and De Bruyne is quickly in to close him down. His pass out to Rudiger is overhit, but the defender just manages to poke it away to stop Mahrez from getting in behind.

45′ + 1′ Into three added minutes at the end of the first half and Chelsea are pushing forward again. James floats an early cross into Werner at the near post and he chests it down before scuffing his shot into the side netting.

42′ HAVERTZ SCORES! The City defenders are all over the place and Havertz just gets between them to reach Mount’s throughball. Ederson rushes out and commits himself and Havertz knocks it past him before sliding the ball into the back of the empty net for his first Champions League goal. 1-0 Chelsea!

41′ Chelsea break quickly again and Chilwell floats a great cross into the box from the left. He’s looking for Werner at the far post and he brings it down well before Stones steps in to take it away from him.

A. Christensen

Thiago Silva

39′ Silva has gone down again and he’s going to have to go off this time. He looks distraught as he makes his way off the field and Christensen is on in his place. 

38′ Kante intercepts the pass into De Bruyne and he turns to set off on the counter. He has three up with him in support and touches it out to Havertz on the right. He cuts inside, but Zinchenko steps in to nick it off him before he can have a shot.
