Pep Guardiola Convinced Chelsea Defeat Won't Affect Champions League Final

Manchester City went down 2-1 on Saturday night against their European final opponents.

Chelsea managed a late winner through Marcos Alonso and delayed City’s coronation as Premier League champions.

It was yet another tactical triumph for Thomas Tuchel who is making City fans nervous ahead of their eventual meeting at Istanbul.

“We have 21 days [before the final],” Guardiola said. “We will see what happens in the final. It’s a different competition, we are going to try to play this game, we will analyse and play the final, which is a dream come true for us.

“Chelsea have been there many times, it’s the first time we will be there. We are going to approach it in the best way possible. All I can say is congratulations Chelsea for the victory.

“We will go to Newcastle and try to win the Premier League. If not to Brighton, if not against Everton and then after we will go and prepare the final against them.”

Manchester City have wrapped up the League Cup this season but were knocked out of the FA Cup by Chelsea. Now, they will have to face them a third consecutive time in the ultimate stage in European club football.
