There was one man who stood out:
N’Golo Kante (Man of the Match)
There were doubts about his future at Stamford Bridge a year or so ago, but this season has demonstrated why he is the best player in the world at his position, with his final performance being particularly impressive. The diminutive Frenchman was everywhere on the pitch, breaking up playtime after time to relieve his side’s pressure.
Ngolo Kante is the best player in the world, according to UCL winning captain!!!!
Chelsea beat Manchester City deservedly in the Champions League final on Saturday, thanks to a goal from summer signing Kai Havertz in the first half.
In an enthralling first half, it was the Blues who got off to the best start, with Timo Werner squandering two chances to take the lead before Havertz finally broke through three minutes before halftime, taking the ball around the advancing Ederson after a stunning through ball from Mason Mount.
While City improved after the break, the loss of captain Kevin De Bruyne to injury dealt a major blow to Pep Guardiola’s side’s chances of winning their first Champions League title, with Pep Guardiola’s side struggling to create anything of note against a tenacious Blues defence.
