The Citizens reached their first final after overcoming Borussia Monchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain in the previous rounds.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are in their third final and will be looking to be crowned European champions for a second time after beating Bayern Munich in the 2012 final.

In terms of recent meetings, Tuchel's Chelsea have beaten the Manchester outfit in their last two encounters, which includes the Premier League and the FA Cup semi-final.

Tuchel will also be looking to avoid back-to-back Champions League final defeats after suffering defeat with PSG in last season's final, while Guardiola is yet to lose a European final.

Here's how the sides start:

Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Zinchenko, Gundogan, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Mahrez, Sterling, Foden

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Rüdiger; James, Kanté, Jorginho, Mount, Werner, Havertz.
