BREAKING: Kings of Europe, Chelsea, win UEFA Cup, beat Man City 1-0


Blow-by-blow last minutes accounts of how the Blues won second European Cup


Chelsea has won their second European Cup after they beat Manchester City 1 – 0.

The Tuchel side held out, and won their second European Cup after 95 minutes of play.

As the Chelsea bench rushes en masse onto the field to celebrate, Pep warmly congratulated Tuchel.

Chelsea’s Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Andreas Christensen celebrate after winning the Champions league.

Here is the update of the last minutes in the historic match.

90 min +6: Jesus battles hard down the inside-right channel. It’s a determined run. Christensen just about holds firm. The ball’s hacked out for another throw on the right. It’s flung back into the mixer. Chelsea allow it to bounce twice and can’t clear very far. Mahrez meets the dropping ball and, with Mendy on his knees, unable to respond, sends a screamer inches wide of the top right. So close to forcing extra time!

90 min +5: Another throw into the Chelsea box from the right. Stones and Dias sandwich Rudiger, who stays down for a bit. The referee may add on a bit of extra time for that over-reaction.

90 min +4: Fernandinho brings down Kante, allowing Chelsea to eat up a few more precious seconds. On the touchline, Tuchel, his temples red hot, veins at bursting point, asks the Chelsea crowd to make some more noise again. A brief, anxious roar.

90 min +3: City fling a long throw into the Chelsea box from the right. Some pinball. Chilwell hacks clear. Both teams are playing desperation football right now.

90 min +2: Jorginho goes down as though shot. He’s not been shot. He gets up as play goes on.

90 min +1: There’s also plenty of time for Chelsea to score a clincher, and with that in mind they launch a counter. It goes nowhere, but the clock ticks on.
