Sun 09 May 2021 | 2:51

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel believes his side’s victory over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium will boost their confidence ahead of the Champions League final.

Manchester City

could have confirmed themselves as Premier League champions for the third time in four seasons if they had managed to beat

Chelsea

.

The Blues fought back to win at the Etihad Stadium thanks to

Marcos Alonso

's late winner after

Hakim Ziyech

had canceled out

Raheem Sterling

's opener.

Tuchel

lost his first three coaching duels with

Pep Guardiola

in Germany but is unbeaten in the last four. However, he claims that both his and Chelsea's recent form over Man City will have no bearing over the Champions League final.

"Sure, it gives us confidence, because it's all about performance and confidence,”

he told

Sky Sports

.

"We know very well, I've said it before and I will repeat it, that will not change the final. It's a very unique game. We cannot predict what will happen, so you need to be well prepared

"We will have some changes again and they will have some changes again, but we arrive with the knowledge that we are capable of beating them. This is what we have now and this will not change until Istanbul."
