Tuchel said he already knows how to beat manchester city in the UCL final



Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel will be looking to lay his hands on the UEFA Champions League trophy for the first time in his managerial career when his side locks horns with Manchester City in the final on Saturday evening in Porto.

The Blues, who secured a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League this season on Sunday afternoon, despite suffering a 2-1 defeat at Villa Park against Aston Villa, will be looking to complete what has been a memorable journey, that has featured wins over Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, on a high.

“Tomorrow, if there will be new stuff tactically. I don’t know. I haven’t decided yet

“I have to look at everybody and see who is available and who is a bit overloaded. There is a high possibility that we will see some changes

In total, Tuchel made five changes to his team that day that had beaten Madrid during the week, as Chelsea battled back from a goal down to win, recovering from 1-0 down at half time to win the game 2-1, courtesy of goals from Marcos Alonso and Ziyech. Again, though, luck was involved, as Sergio Aguero spurned a golden chance to double City’s lead just before half time from the penalty spot.
