Mount and Chilwell push Chelsea ahead against Porto; Porto 0-2 Chelsea
Mason Mount has become ChelseaFC's youngest ever goalscorer in a UEFA Champions League knockout match (22y 87d).
Chelsea secured a first-leg win against FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-final.
It took a 32-minute strike from Mason Mount before Ben Chilwell rounded it up in the second half to give the Blues more confidence ahead in the second leg.
Chelsea were harmless along the way in the first half and Porto looked most likely to break the deadlock until Mason Mount registered his first goal in the competition from his side’s first opportunity.
Chelsea probed their way around the Porto penalty area before Jorginho picked out the 22-year-old on the edge of the box. His clever turn and backheel fooled Zaidu, before the English international thumped a low, right-footed drive into the far corner.
Porto's set-piece delivery caused the Blues a number of problems in defence, yet they were unable to find the net to level the scores.
Chilwell found the back of the net to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead when he nipped in to dispossess Corona and bore down on goal, taking it past the advancing Marchesín to leave him with a straightforward finish from close range.
Porto were the better side on the night, but two defensive errors made the difference. The Portuguese outfit were brave, followed their game plan but failed to score.
