Ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash between Porto and Chelsea, Porto boss Sergio Conceicao has claimed he expects a strong backlash from Chelsea following the 5-2 defeat to West Brom.

According to Conceicao, he would have preferred Chelsea beat West Brom.

“You know that Thiago Silva was sent off in the first half and that the game had a different course,” said Conceicao.

“Chelsea until this last game had been extremely competent, they have not lost a game in the Champions League, they have the second-best defence in the Champions League and also in the English League.

“They are a competent team, and when these defeats happen it serves as a warning.

“If you want my opinion, I would prefer that they won the last game. Because these situations make the siren sound and make everyone more alert, more awake to danger, and I honestly don’t like these defeats very much.”
