    • 2021 May 29, David Hytner, “Chelsea win Champions League after Kai Havertz stuns Manchester City”, in The Guardian[1]:
      Havertz oozed class on the ball, looking every inch the high-end addition, while City knew that they had to find a way past N’Golo Kanté before they got at Chelsea’s miserly backline, which absorbed the loss of Thiago Silva to injury on 38 minutes.
