Man City – Chelsea
- Estadio do Dragao, Porto
- This year: Man City 1 win, Chelsea 2 wins
- This is the third all-English UCL final. Chelsea was part of the first one when they lost to Man Utd on penalties in 2008.
None of the managers has injury worries so they have a full squad to pick.
Gundogan was the last to declare fit for Guardiola, who will most probably start with a 4-3-3 formation and experienced Fernandinho in the midfield winning the ‘race’ with Rodri. A false-9 formation is what took Man City here in the European season and will come in act again in Porto.
Tuchel may have got the better of Josep Guardiola in the league and FA Cup in the past two months but this is a totally different game. The German will probably try to find something ‘new’ way to surprise City and at the same time needs to stick with the best combined starting eleven. It looks like rising star Havertz and experienced Giroud will both start on the bench.
Manchester City – Chelsea Possible line-ups
Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Stones, Ruben Dias, Zinchenko; Bernardo Silva, Fernandinho, Gundogan; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Foden
Chelsea: Mendy; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Pulisic, Werner, Mount
Man City – Chelsea prediction
A great… chess match, with Chelsea having come out victorious on the two previous occasions. Total possession football from City, yet Chelsea have found their key in the league and cup, so the Citizens will be looking for something different, something that in Europe has to do with the different style of football they have adopted. Chelsea might be forced to play with counterattacks and expect City with plenty of depth in defence, . The common denominator is a solid defence, which can lead to a low scoring game with few goals.
But you know that especially in finals we also have a scenario in mind, which in this case sees City taking the lead through either of De Bruyne and Gundogan and Chelsea going forward later on and opening up a lot towards the end of the game. At that point, it will either stay 1-0 or City will score a second goal through Mahrez or Aguero, with the Argentinian expected to come on as a substitute for a last dance as a Citizen.
