He recovered in a key game. After suffering a win at the weekend in the Premier League, Chelsea played a good game against Porto as a visitor, beat them 2-0 and was one step away from the Champions semi-finals.
Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel to the Blues bench, the London team managed to reap very good results. However, four days ago they suffered a landslide loss to West Bromwich at home, raising doubts about how the team would react in the match against Porto. But all this was forgotten when the ball began to roll at the Sánchez-Pizjuán stadium, as Chelsea was clearly superior to its rivals.
The first goal of the match was at 32 minutes, with a pass from Jorginho to Mason Mount, who took advantage of his speed to turn, remove the mark from above and go hand in hand with Agustín Marchesín, who could not avoid the fall of his fence.
Although the visit had everything under control, the 1-0 did not reflect the process of the match, until at 40 in the second half, Ben Chilwell took advantage of a poor control of a Porto defender, stole the ball and went alone against Marchesín to score the final 2-0. The return will be next Tuesday on the same court, since in England the restrictions due to coronavirus continue.
