The Champions League is a stage where the big players try to show their worth, and there’s hardly a bigger occasion to show your worth than in the final of the Champions League.

Manchester City and Chelsea face each other in Porto, and it’s a massive tie between two English sides who are ready to give everything.

Not many players from the two teams have won the Champions League, with Mateo Kovacic the only player in the Chelsea team who can boast of a Champions League winner’s medal.

Ahead of the final, former Blue and France 98 World Cup winner Emmanuel Petit, has mentioned the likes of Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante and Phil Foden as the players who could influence the game.

“Phil Foden and Mason Mount are the young game-changers who could hold the key to the destination of the Champions League trophy in Porto this weekend,” he told Paddy Power.

“I’ve been so impressed by both these players this season. We can all agree what a bright talent Manchester City have in Foden and, like Mount at Chelsea, he has a wonderful future.

“Another man who could be key in the final is N’Golo Kante. If he is 100 per cent fit physically and mentally, he will cause big problems for City.

“I’m very excited about seeing so many talented players on both teams and I’m hoping for very good final full of emotion between two English clubs.

“I hope the best team wins but of course, as a former Chelsea player, I’d like to see them do it. It would represent a huge achievement for Thomas Tuchel and his team.”
