Every English club to have won Europe's biggest competition twice or more

The Blues, who beat City 1-0 in Portugal, have joined an exclusive club of winning the Champions League - previously known as the European Cup - for a second time.

Kai Havertz's sole goal gave Thomas Tuchel a third successive win over Pep Guardiola, and more importantly, Chelsea another Champions League title following on from their 2012 win against Bayern Munich.

To celebrate success, Planet Sport looks at the other English clubs to have achieved such a feat.

Manchester United - 1967/68, 1998/99 and 2007/08

Manchester United became the first English club to win the European Cup in 1968 with a win over Benfica in the final. The tie went to extra time, but in the end, it was comfortable for United as they ran out as 4-1 winners.

Bobby Charlton opened the scoring for Matt Busby's team before they were pegged back by a Jaime Graca equaliser. Goals from George Best, Brian Kidd and Charlton killed the game off in extra time to secure history.

Man United had to wait 31 years for their next triumph on the European stage but when it came it was certainly memorable. Sir Alex Ferguson's side were 1-0 down after just six minutes against Bayern Munich through Mario Basler and remained so for another 85.

Denying the German giants in stoppage time, Teddy Sheringham levelled and it looked to have forced extra time. That was until super-sub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer completed a miraculous comeback in the 93rd minute to seal a famous triumph for Man United.

A third Champions League was lifted in 2008 after victory over Chelsea in the competition's first ever all-English final. Cristiano Ronaldo's opening header was quickly cancelled out by Frank Lampard just before half-time.

The game ended 1-1 and went to penalties. Edwin van der Sar was the hero in Moscow after saving Nicolas Anelka's penalty in sudden death. The Dutchman sealed a third European title although the final is much more remembered for John Terry slipping over and missing his penalty kick for the win.

You win some, you lose some. Unlucky JT.

Liverpool - 1976/77, 1977/78, 1980/81, 1983/84, 2004/05 and 2018/19

Liverpool's era of European dominance started with a 3-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in 1977. Terry McDermott's early goal opened the scoring for the Reds before Allan Simonsen's equaliser got Gladbach back in the game.

Soon after though, Tommy Smith and Phil Neal made the game safe for Liverpool and manager Bob Paisley got his hands on a first European Cup.

Paisley won the trophy again in the following season. This time they overcame Club Brugge and Kenny Dalglish netted the decisive goal and in doing so, Liverpool became the first British team to retain the European Cup. In 1981, Paisley's Liverpool reached another final but it was a cagey encounter against Real Madrid.

Left-back Alan Kennedy broke the deadlock late on, giving Liverpool their third European Cup. Paisley - the first manager to win the competition three times - had done so in just five years.

While Paisley may have moved on by 1984, the majority of the players remained and inspired the club to its fourth against Roma on penalties. Neal, Graeme Souness, Ian Rush and Kennedy all converted from the spot.

It proved to be the last European Cup they would win for a fair while, but it was an exceptional period of dominance while it lasted.

Liverpool's next title win, and first of the Champions League era, came in 2005. When Istanbul gets mentioned in the soccer world, one game springs to mind - Liverpool's comeback against AC Milan.

A Hernan Crespo brace alongside Paulo Maldini's opener saw Milan go into half-time three goals up. The question was, would it become an embarrassment for Rafa Benitez?

But in one of the unlikeliest fightbacks in sporting history, quickfire goals from captain Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso put Liverpool back on level terms by 60 minutes.

Neither team could grab a winner in extra time so it went to the dreaded shootout. Despite John Arne Riise's miss, Didi Hamann, Djibril Cisse and Smicer got the job done from 12 yards to help Liverpool complete the most impossible of Champions League final wins.

A sixth Champions League came in 2019 - a final of redemption for a Liverpool side that had suffered defeat to Real Madrid the previous season.

They faced off against Tottenham Hotspur, at the peak of their powers under Mauricio Pochettino, but self-imploded immediately. Moussa Sissoko gave away a penalty after just 24 seconds, which Mohamed Salah proceeded to score and from there Liverpool never lost their grip on the game.

Divock Origi made the game safe three minutes from time to make the score 2-0 and earn manager Jurgen Klopp a first Champions League trophy of his career.

Nottingham Forest - 1978/79 and 1979/80

Nottingham Forest's two European Cups came in back-to-back seasons under boss Brian Clough and were the greatest days in the club's history.

The first victory came in 1979 with a 1-0 win over Malmo in the final. A Trevor Francis header was enough to get the win for Forest as they cemented their place in history amongst Europe's elite.

Another 1-0 victory in the following season's final over Hamburger SV earned them successive triumphs

John Robertson's goal proved to be the difference and interestingly, Forest became the first side to win more European Cups than their domestic league.
