Thomas Tuchel’s team, meanwhile, clinched a 3-1 aggregate victory over Real Madrid to set up an all-English final against Manchester City on May 29. Blues legend Terry took to Instagram to congratulate Chelsea for their fantastic achievements, uploading a touching picture of Mount playing for one of the club’s junior sides.

Blues summer signing Timo Werner headed home Chelsea’s opener and the win was no less than Tuchel’s side deserved. Tuchel, who replaced Frank Lampard as manager in January, said: ‘We deserved to win. ‘First off it’s difficult because Real had a lot of possession and they made us suffer, but then we were dangerous with counter-attacks and never lost the hunger, never lost their desire to defend.
Second half was even better, the structure to defend and in the second half, we could’ve scored much earlier – I could’ve scored more. It’s a fantastic achievement and big congratulations to the team. ‘Real Madrid, of course, are always dangerous. they can turn nothing into goals. So, to hang in there, even when you have chances and miss them, they never lost concentration, focus, and a positive energy on the pitch. This was a huge performance.’ Manchester City reached their first Champions League final after knocking out last season’s runners-up Paris Saint-Germain in the semi-finals.
