Thomas Tuchel had another animated reaction to Chelsea forward Timo Werner failing to find the back of the net.

The German had a golden opportunity for the lead in the Champions League final after 14 minutes when the Blues fired early shots at Ederson's goal.

Set free by Mason Mount, the forward skipped past Ruben Dias to put a left-footed shot at goal.

But Werner, who has suffered a tough season with some misses in big games since arriving from RB Leipzig, could only find the side netting.

While a corner kick was won, BT Sport 's cameras caught manager Tuchel's animated but positive reaction to the shot.

After rueing the missed chance, the Chelsea boss throws his hands up in the air to get the 6,000 travelling fans going.

Calling for supporters to get behind the Blues forward, the German then offers a round of applause to the No.11 for his efforts.

Tuchel is trying to clinch the Champions League for the first time in his career and the first time in nine years for the west London club.

And he went into half time 1-0 up, Werner's German team-mate Kai Havertz finding space behind the City defence on 42 minutes.

Werner is the club's joint-top scorer on 12 goals alongside Tammy Abraham, who does not have a place in the matchday squad.

The German arrived last summer from RB Leipzig for £53m, having scored 34 goals for the Bundesliga side in the 2019/20 season.

But the goals have not flowed as easily this year, taking four games to score his first goal for the club in the Carabao Cup against Morecambe.

But he is the club's joint-top scorer with Abraham, having scored 12 times and made 15 assists for the Blues.

Four of his strikes have come in the Champions League, with three in the group stages and one in the second leg against Real Madrid for a 3-1 aggregate win.
