Thomas Tuchel lauds two players in Porto win

Chelsea aiming to win their second Champions League title.

Thomas Tuchel’s side beat Porto 2-0 in the quarter-final first leg of the UEFA Champions League.

Both Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount scored a goal in each of the first halves to secure the win for the Blues.

Thomas Tuchel was pleased with how his players reacted and praised both Chilwell and Mount after the game.

“I am very, very happy [Mount] scored,” Tuchel said.

“It was an important goal and opened up the game for us and calmed nerves.

“It wasn’t an easy shot but very precise. I am very happy for Mason, he takes responsibility.

“Mason is precise with his finishing and always ready to help us.

“[Ben Chilwell] excellent because he kept his composure to go past the goalkeeper.

“It was super important to get the second away goal. Like I said, we lacked a bit of rhythm in our attack but there was always a chance to get a goal from a mistake from our opponent.

“He isn’t a regular scorer but I am very happy we go away with the result.

“It’s half time, though. We need to keep going.”
