Players, management, past players, and celebrity Chelsea fans all gave their reaction to our famous Champions League triumph over Manchester City on Saturday night, and we have selected a collection for you to enjoy below, starting with the boss…

Thomas Tuchel: ‘This is unbelievable. To share it with everybody is unbelievable. I don’t know what to feel. I was so grateful to arrive a second time, but I had a feeling this was different. Somehow you could feel it, every day coming closer. The players were determined to win this, we wanted to be the stone in City’s shoe.’

His players enjoyed it, too…

Ben Chilwell: ‘We knew it would be a tough game. In the second half we fought for our lives to get to this moment, to have this feeling. This is what I came to Chelsea for. It’s a dream come true. The key was to get tight and be aggressive. I was getting tired as the game went on but when the Champions League is up for grabs, you don’t really tire.’
