There were remarkable scenes at Wembley as Kepa Arrizabalaga refused to be substituted but Raheem Sterling hit the winning penalty for City.
21′ CHANCE! Aguero’s shot over the bar Bernardo Silva’s dazzling run on the right flank finishes with a dinked cross to Aguero at the back post. Aguero controls on his chest, creating space from Azpilicueta and swings his right boot at the ball as it bounces. His effort goes over the bar.
45′ Hazard has a very impressive solo run Willian releases Hazard down the left. The Belgian bumps Laporte off the ball and causes chaos in the City area as he goes past a couple. His shot is eventually blocked.
55′ OFFSIDE! Aguero’s goal disallowed Aguero has it in the net from close-range, but the goal is ruled out for offside. The referee refers to the VAR. The VAR sticks with the on-field decision, keeping the scores level.
65′ CLOSE! Kante’s shot over the bar Hazard is released down the left flank by Willian. He’s left in a lot of space and dances past Kompany, making it to the byline. Kante arrives in the area and Hazard finds him.
Kante strikes it first-time and it goes just over the bar. That’s the best chance of the match so far.
76′ Pedro almost creates something Chelsea play through City’s midfield with some quick passing down the left. Hazard holds off a challenge from David Silva and beats Otamendi on the edge of the area before sliding it to Pedro.
The Spaniard decides against a shot and squares it. City get it behind for a corner. 110′ Incredible scramble!Man City waste a golden chance to lead Sterling breaks a challenge along the byline, cutting back to Aguero.
Azpilicueta blocks his shot inside the six-yard box and Kepa punches it away from the goal towards several City players. Kante beats all of them to the ball and clears it.
120′ Kepa refuses to come off and be replaced by Caballero The young Spaniard appeared to suffer a muscular problem on two occasions in extra- time, dropping to the floor each time, and that caused Sarri to decide that he should bring on Caballero.
