The last 15 Manchester City v Chelsea games – in pictures

Before Saturday's Champions League final in Portugal, we take a look at previous clashes between the Premier League sides

All eyes turn to Portugal on Saturday as Manchester City take on Chelsea in the Champions League final.

It will be manager Pep Guardiola's third European Cup final as a manager – after winning his previous two while at Barcelona in 2009 and 2011 – but is the first time City have reached the showpiece match.

For Chelsea, this marks their third appearance in the final, having won the tournament in 2012 and finished runners-up four years earlier. German manager Thomas Tuchel was a beaten finalist last season when his PSG team were beaten by Bayern Munich at an empty Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.

The two English clubs have become regular foes in the battle for trophies in the Premier League era and this will be the fourth time this year they have met.

City started the year with a 3-1 win over Chelsea in January but Chelsea have hit back since, knocking them out of the FA Cup semi-final and defeating them at the Etihad Stadium earlier this month.
