Chelsea fans were not disappointed with the preview they got of this season’s Champions League final.
Manchester City were beaten 2-1 at the Etihad at the back of a very mediocre showing from their end.
Thomas Tuchel’s men were in no mood to take it easy on the impending Premier League champions. The Blues boss said, “I think the second half was a fantastic response to the last five minutes of the first half where we almost lost it all. To me it was a clear 0-0 half but suddenly we did one decisive mistake and maybe the match becomes out of reach at half-time.
“With every minute we gained confidence and quality. We got better and better. It was a tough battle and once we got the equaliser we never stopped attacking. [The winning goal] was a huge reward.
“This tells us we can rely on our fitness which is a fantastic feeling at the end of a season. We can also rely on our team spirit, we keep going. This team never stops, they don’t want to lose, they want it that bad.”
Chelsea have already beaten City two consecutive times now under Tuchel and are due to face off against them in Istanbul in three weeks’ time.
