Chelsea and Manchester City have a Champions League final date on May 29 in Porto, and it’s expected to be a massive clash between two English giants.

Manchester City have been tagged as the favourites for this fixture, but Pep Guardiola’s side have already tasted two defeats against Chelsea over the past month.

Man City winger Ferran Torres has admitted ahead of the game that Chelsea are a pain in the neck, as he made reference to the team’s desire to win the ball back and hit on the counter.

“They’re a pain in the neck, in a good way, since they’re always chasing the ball,” Torres told UEFA’s official website.

“They run a lot and they want the ball. They don’t just go for counterattacks, they also want to take the ball off you, which deserves some credit.

“City are a team which likes to have the ball, and it’s sometimes very hard to take it from us, but they’ve done a great job against us.

“In fact, they’ve beaten us twice. I mean, you never know in a [UEFA] Champions League final.”
