- The Pride of London and Roman Army, Chelsea Football Club have won the UEFA Champions League trophy for the second time in their history
- Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the match in the first half after rounding off Ederson Moraes, Manchester City’s goalkeeper
Football lovers, enthusiasts, fans, supporters, clubs have congratulated The Blues for defeating Manchester City 1-0 in the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) played last night.
Why did Chelsea win the UEFA Champions League? The answer is simple. There were three major things done by The Blues that their opponent failed to do.
- Chelsea had more tactical awareness last night than Manchester City. Chelsea players used tactics like time wasting especially in the second half to frustrate Manchester City’s player, making Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho to get booked for infringement, and get yellow card.
- Chelsea had no star player, thereby making it difficult for Manchester City to mark out any Chelsea player.
- Counterattack was used by Chelsea. This was seen when Kai Havertz scored his goal as Manchester City’s defenders all left their positions. Christian Pulisic also almost scored the second goal for The Blues, following a counterattack move.
