PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Chelsea have one foot in the Champions League semi-finals. Thomas Tuchel will not admit that of course, but a 2-0 victory over Porto this evening has put the Blues firmly in control of their quarter-final tie. Mason Mount struck in the opening period to put Chelsea ahead and, with five minutes left to play, Ben Chilwell strode through to give the Blues a precious second away goal. It was back to normality under Tuchel too, with Chelsea keeping their 13th clean sheet in 16 matches under the German coach. We'll have Tuchel's thoughts after the victory below. The Blues head coach will be conducting his post-match press conference very shortly. 22:18Adam NewsonThomas Tuchel to BT SportThe result is excellent. It was a tough match against a strong Porto side. They are a proud club and a proud team, so there were moments when we suffered. But we accepted it and I could see the circumstances are a bit different in a quarter-final. In some moments it was a good game, in some moments we suffered. But the spirit was good. I was pretty sure [there would be a reaction to the West Brom defeat] because I saw the response after the game in the dressing room. That wasn't a big concern. We had a big loss but it was our responsibility but we accepted it. We were ready to respond. There will always be setbacks in football, the challenge is to bounce back. I am very, very happy he scored. It was an important goal and opened up the game for us and calmed nerves. It wasn't an easy shot but very precise. I am very happy for Mason, he takes responsibility. Mason is precise with his finishing and always ready to help us.

. It was super important to get the second away goal. Like I said, we lacked a bit of rhythm in our attack but there was always a chance to get a goal from a mistake from our opponent. He isn't a regular scorer but I am very happy we go away with the result. It's half time, though. We need to keep going. 22:13Adam NewsonPlayer ratingsWasn't necessarily a vintage Chelsea performance but the majority of the Blues side produced tonight. Here are our player ratings.

I don't think you can work on it enough. It's a part of my game I think I can improve on and score more goals. I've got to say my goal was better, he [Ben Chiwell] will say his one. He showed great composure to be fair. Great finish from him, he'll be buzzing with that. After the game we put it behind us. That game was something we looked at and then moved on. We came into this game with full focus, 100% commitment. The job isn't done. They're going to come and fight in the next leg. We're going to have to give it our all again. We'll be ready.
