Thanks to Kai Havertz, Chelsea FC is meanwhile on the Champions League course. Team manager Thomas Tuchel’s team defeated FC Fulham, which was threatened by relegation, 2-0 (1-0) after two goals by the national player (10th, 49th) and consolidated fourth place. For Havertz it was the goals three and four of the season, the recently harshly criticized Timo Werner prepared the second goal. Antonio Rüdiger was slightly injured and not in the squad.
For Chelsea it was also a successful dress rehearsal for the semi-final second leg in the Champions League against Real Madrid on Wednesday. The first leg in Spain ended 1-1.
ManCity was decisive from the start, but only scored the opening goal in the 57th minute thanks to the club icon Sergio Agüero, who was leaving at the end of the season. Ferran Torres (59th) increased shortly afterwards. Ilkay Gündogan, who was rudely fouled on Wednesday in the 2-1 first leg win in the semi-finals of the Champions League in Paris, stayed on the bench.
