Arsene Wenger has said Manchester City could not find a way through the Chelsea defence because of Thomas Tuchel’s brilliant strategy in Saturday’s Champions League final.
According to Wenger, the positioning of two Chelsea inside forwards; Mason Mount and Kai Havertz, was the key to their success.
“I must say that what Tuchel did well is that played Mount and Havertz more inside defensively,” the former Arsenal boss told beIN SPORTS.
“So Manchester City could never find a way through the middle and had to go wide where Chelsea were quite strong.
“Manchester City had a big tactical problem they could not sort out.
“They’re not balanced, they did not find a way to play incisive football and Chelsea stopped them very well.”
Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel said he had sensed before the Champions League final that his side would win on Saturday.
