Chelsea are champions of Europe, and the Blues really deserve to be champions after such a display on the way to winning the trophy.

It was a very tactically organised Chelsea side from defence to attack, as no team had an answer to Tuchel’s Chelsea from the round of 16 to the final.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has explained why the Chelsea team were better than everyone else last season.

Simeone revealed his love for the tactical and positional discipline the Blues exhibited against his side as he said: “We understood their superiority from positional play. There were always people in space. I loved it, they are a team with versatility. It was demonstrated against City.

“They beat Madrid as they beat us. Tuchel has done an enormous job. Is Tuchel’s Chelsea defensive or offensive? They defend well and tempt you with the ball to attack.

“We thought they were a simple team, one we had already seen. They were better. The 2nd game they were at a different pace, they tempted you to generate space. We really liked it.”
