Chelsea Football Club on Thursday defeated FC Porto 2-0 in the UEFA Champions league first leg quarter finals.

Chelsea came back to winning ways in the Champions League after heavy defeat to West Brom on Saturday.

Mason Mount’s goal in the first half was good enough to give the Blues hope while, Ben Chilwell boosted the confidence of the team with the second goal in the second half.

After the win, Chelsea coach expressed his feelings and backed it up with some comments. He said,  “It was a tough match against a strong Porto side.

“There were many moments where we suffered. We accepted it. The circumstances are a bit different in a quarter-final. The spirit was good and it was an excellent result.

“I was pretty sure about that [they’d react well after the WBA defeat]. I saw a response immediately in the dressing room and the next day. That wasn’t a big concern. We were ready to respond. There will always be setbacks in sports. The biggest challenge is to bounce back.

“We had a lot of excellent results together, then we had a loss together and then a reaction after a loss together. That brings us closer together and increases the trust.

“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.’’
