Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy believes Chelsea made Atletico Madrid suffer in our 1-0 victory over the Spanish club by playing at a high intensity and keeping the ball.

Olivier Giroud’s bicycle kick gave Thomas Tuchel’s side a vital away goal.

Mendy said: “It was tough but we won and that is what we wanted.

“The key to our success was the intensity in the game. We ran a lot, we kept the ball and they suffered.

“It was a good game but it’s only half-time [in the tie] so we need to stay focused.”
