Pep Guardiola has a pretty poor recent record against Blues manager Thomas Tuchel, with Chelsea winning all three of the German’s matches against Manchester City.
Guardiola is seeking to beat Tuchel’s Chelsea for the first time.
When asked what he will tell his players, Guardiola said: “We prepare the game like we prepare Southampton before and the previous games, try to read what they are and what we have done in recent games against Chelsea and Tuchel.
“Every game is a new challenge to improve and learn and be better. A final is completely different, the previous games like in the FA Cup was a final and was a tight game, we lost.
“In the Premier League it was already done, we were already nearly champions.
“The Champions League was a massive game. We try to learn, now it’s a new competition and we learn for these games.
“It’s one more game for the Premier League. Prepare the game from the strong points we have and improve what we have to be better.
“The mindset we had the last days to prepare this game will be the same against PSG and Liverpool before the international break.”
