Chelsea duo N’Golo Kante and Edouard Mendy have been passed fit to face Manchester City in Saturday’s Champions League final.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed he has a fully-fit squad for the match.

But Manchester City have been given a scare after Ilkay Gundogan appeared to take a slight knock during their last training session ahead the final.

It happened when he came together in a challenge with Fernandinho at the Estadio do Dragao, and Gundogan was slow to get to his feet.

He left the session before many of his team-mates and looked to be in slight discomfort as he went down the tunnel.

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel says their Champions League final opponents Manchester City are the ‘strongest team in the world’

While City could be without a key midfielder, Chelsea are boosted by the return of Kante, who is back in training after missing Sunday’s Premier League game at Aston Villa with a hamstring problem.

Goalkeeper Mendy was replaced at half-time during the Villa Park defeat after hurting his ribs when colliding with a post, but Chelsea boss Tuchel confirmed he is ready for action.
