Chelsea faces Manchester City in the Champions League Final set for 8.00PM tonight. So many discussions, history and stake have been thrown at the clash.
Across the world, fans look upto the match as it is the most prestigious cup in the world of football.
Chelsea who is experiencing a superb form is tipped by many analyst to be the favorite as they have won Manchester City in their last two meetings – Premier League and the FA Cup. But based on the experience and fantastic year in, year out form of Manchester City, it is definitely going to be a tough match.
Pep Guardiola, who is arguably the greatest Manager of all time, is set again with his tactician capabilities.
Speaking to BT Sport pundit Rio Ferdinand, he explained why Chelsea has been playing so well this season. He said: “Why Chelsea play so good… because they have three central defenders close, the two holding midfielders who move in relation are close, the pockets are close, the striker and the two [others in attack] are so, so close.
Analyzing further, he said: “The distances are so close, and at the same time they are so wide with the wing backs, they are so good with the ball in behind.
“That’s why you cannot be close because they push you [out wide] and they have a lot of good players in the middle.
“That’s why it’s difficult to face teams who want the ball and want to play with the ball. We’ve tried to do it since day one.”
Asked about Tuchel’s impact at Stamford Bridge, Guardiola replied: “I think it’s massive.
“I saw the first game he had against Wolves, it was a draw but I saw already some routines, some mental processes when I faced them in Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.
“I knew he would do it quick and good here at Chelsea.” he said.
Reacting to his analysis, some Chelsea fans quickly refuted his analogies, saying that if he truly knows what he is saying he wouldn’t have lost against Chelsea twice.
He was not even interested in those matches he played his b team in both the matches and didn’t give a shit about winning the last time he was interested in winning remember the score was 3-1— Goated Aguero (@CityAguero10) May 28, 2021
