Following a devastating defeat against West Brom last weekend, Chelsea needed to put on a good show against Porto in the Champions League quarter-final clash on Wednesday night.

Chelsea did well on the night and beat the Portuguese giants 2-0, to put one foot in the semifinals.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted that the Chelsea players were happy in the dressing room after the victory and the atmosphere was good. Although he maintained that they shouldn’t get overly excited, as the job hasn’t been completed.

“I feel a good atmosphere in the dressing room. We are happy but not too happy. We are excited but not over-excited. We are very aware that today we made a lot of a few good attacks and we got two goals.

“It was hard for us to create touches in the box and find the right rhythm to attack for a long time. In the second half, it was a bit more controlled but overall we escaped with a very good result.

“It’s a quarter-final and we have to keep on going because we know it will be necessary to have another top performance and top mentality next week.”
