Despite taking an early lead against Porto in Wednesday night’s Champions League quarter-final thanks to a Mason Mount goal, Chelsea have spent much of the match under the cosh.

The Blues’ Portuguese opponents have fought back valiantly and had it not have been for a late crucial save from keeper Mendy, Chelsea could easily be heading into the return tie all square at 1-1.

Following Mendy’s vitally important save, left-back Chilwell doubled his side’s lead just moments later.

Vital, vital goal – Chelsea are now odds-on-favourites to make the competition’s semi-final.
