Tuchel proud of goalscorers
Chelsea overcame a spirited Porto performance to come away from Seville with a significant 2-0 victory, away goals in the bag and the tag of clear favourites to progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Goals from both Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount were the difference in during the match and coach Thomas Tuchel spoke of his happiness for both players to get on the score sheet.
“I’m very happy he [Mason] scored, it was a very important goal, an away goal which opened up the game and helped everybody’s nerves. It wasn’t an easy shot, but it was very precise,” said Tuchel.
“Chilwell’s goal was excellent, he’s not a regular scorer but he kept his composure, went around the goalkeeper and it was super important to get the second away goal.
“We lacked a bit of rhythm and precision while attacking but there was always a chance to maybe get a goal from a mistake from the opponent, and Chilwell forced one and kept his cool in the box.”
The goals will not only excite the German coach but the manager of the England national team Gareth Southgate ahead of the European Championships with both players in line for a call up.
Southgate will hope that the goalscoring form can continue into the tournament as England push towards their first international trophy since 1966.
Chilwell & Mount selfie celebration
The goal scoring duo decided to go to social media in order to celebrates their debut Champions League goals and were caught by striker Tammy Abraham who himself uploaded a video catching the pair in the act.
‘Oh we scored did we?…’ 😂🙄

And right on cue, the selfie was indeed posted to both players’ Instagram pages with taglines stating that the job was not yet done.
