There were so many outstanding bits about this CL win to the point it's hard to say which one is the most impressive of the lot.

One thing that arguably hasn't been mentioned much is the fact that we only trailed for 5 minutes in the entire CL campaign and those 5 minutes were pretty much unimportant - 4 minutes in the dead rubber Krasnodar game and 1 minute after conceding that late winner against Porto. We were always in control otherwise and "got" the game to play out the way we want to. 

From a trivial POV that goal Porto scored was irritating.

Prevented us being unbeaten Champions and Mendy from getting the clean sheet record.

Taking time off isn't just about physically resting from playing it's also about giving your mind a rest from the pressures. Even not playing they're still part of the preparation and in a position where they could be thrown into a high pressure situation at any moment.

A break mentally is probably even more important this time round given the relentless schedule of the last year.

For sure, but it is a tradeoff between mental rest and physical sharpness for the game in question. If you trained most of summer you probably will still better perform on the night than someone who had the whole summer off and only recently restarted training.  Long term obviously the former will be more prone to burnout or other signs of mental fatigue. Obviously would still prefer our whole squad to have the summer off and restart training when TT sees fit.

But we need to win the super cup regardless. I could not stand to lose it 4 times in a row.

Silva, Kante and Jorginho are most likely to play finals with NTs (Zouma, Emerson and Giroud also but they are leaving most likely) so with 3 weeks holiday after that they would not come before August. 

Silva, Jorginho yes (and Emerson who is leaving most likely) but Chilwell, Mount and James instead of French players.

So I think Villarreal will come too soon for these players. Hopefully Chris is not seriously injured. Yes, James and Ben did not play but still they will get 3 weeks of holiday after the final.


             Azpi?           ?      Rudiger

     CHO     Kante     Kovacic     Alonso

      Pulisic(Ziyech)  Havertz  Werner

More than enough to get this trophy!
