5:2 defeat could be a one off, as Mount impresses against Porto

Chelsea put the 5:2 bashing by West Brom in the Premier League behind them as they ran out 2 nil winners against FC Porto in the first leg of their UCL quarterfinal encounter at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán in Seville. The Blues were heavy favorites for a win after the draws were made but doubts came up after the defeat to West Brom. However, the Blues went into the game with the intent of clearing those doubts and did it, thanks to goals by Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell.

Regardless, Zinedine Zidane and his men know that there is still all to play for when they visit Anfield, although the venue has become a hunting ground for visiting teams, albeit domestically.

Baggies hand Blues rude awakening ahead of UCL tie against Porto

Football is one very unpredictable game that many folks should be aware of by now, and stop underrating teams. Thomas Tuchel's winning run at Chelsea was halted by the unlikeliest of teams in the Premier League on Saturday and no one saw it coming. A good one for the bookies indeed! Chelsea were hammered 5:2 by Sam Allardyce's West Brom at Stamford Bridge in the early kickoff game on Saturday and it was a big shocker. The Blues have been stingy in letting in the goals under Tuchel, but when they did, it was against 19th placed West Brom. We could say the Blues' momentum was halted by the international break but they were not the only team whose players engaged wholly in the internationals.
