Champions League: 3 talking points after Chelsea defeated Man City to emerge champions

Chelsea FC emerged winners of the 2021 UEFA Champions League after claiming a 1-0 victory against newly crowned Premeir League Champions Manchester City on Saturday evening.

German winger Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the game in the 42nd minute of the first half after he was set up by Mason Mount. That goal proved to be the difference in the game.

While Chelsea will be smiling home, Guardiola and his boys would definitely not be happy. Anyways check out some of these obvious highlights.

Guardiola’s mistake:

Pep Guardiola is no doubt one of the best managers in modern football, but he failed to get it right on a big day. Knowing how good Chelsea’s midfield has become, he decided not to start the game with a defensive midfielder like Rodri or Fernandinho.

He also decided to play with two wide men, Mahrez and Sterling, and they haven’t done that often this year. It was indeed a costly mistake.
