Manchester City legend Franny Lee has warned Chelsea that they will have to be at their very best to even compete with his former club in the Champions League final this weekend.
The Blues have beaten the Citizens twice in the last two months, but Lee says that Thomas Tuchel’s side would be mistaken to believe they have any hold over City:
“If I was playing for Manchester City against Chelsea, I’d feel very confident that we’ll win. I wouldn’t even entertain the thought we could lose, because we’re that good. And if Chelsea get lulled into a false sense of security, having won the last two games against City, they’ll get a right pasting.”
Lee, who was in the team 51 years ago when City won their last European trophy, the Cup Winners Cup, is certainly bullish about Pep Guardiola team’s chances, and he has every right to be.
You only have to look at the sides’ last two results to see what sort of form they are in, ahead of the match in Porto on Sunday.
While City thrashed Everton 5-0 as they strolled to lifting the Premier League title, Chelsea limped into the top four despite losing to Aston Villa on the final day.
Of course, anything can happen in a cup final but the Citizens have to be favourites to lift their first Champions League crown.
