Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel hails two players after Porto Champions League win
Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel was full of praise for his two goalscorers as the Blues sealed a 2-0 win over Porto in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday. Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell scored a goal in each half to give their side two vital away goals.
Chelsea will now be strong favourites to play either Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich at the semi-final stage.
Tuchel’s side bounced back from Saturday’s 5-2 drubbing by West Brom in the Premier League.
And the German was delighted with the response his players showed.
“The result is excellent. It was a tough match against a strong Porto side,” Tuchel told BT Sport.
