Chelsea are back to winning ways as they defeated Portuguese side FC Porto 2-0 in the first leg of the UCL quarter finals at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium on Wednesday night.
Chelsea took the lead in the first 45 minutes through Mason Mount’s wonderful strike before Ben Chilwell added the other goal in the second period of the game to seal a comfortable victory for the Blues.
After the game, Thomas Tuchel showered praises on both goalscorers Mount and Chilwell for scoring wonderful goals against the Portuguese giants.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to BT Sport: “I’m very happy that he [Mason Mount] scores. A very important goal that opened up the game. It calmed the nerves. Not an easy shot but very precise. Very happy for Mason. He took responsibility.
“[Ben Chilwell’s goal was] excellent. He kept composure and went round the keeper. It was super important to get the second away goal. Chilly forced the mistake and kept his cool in the box. We’re very happy to go away with this result but it’s only half-time.”
