two very good goals. should have scored more with the azpi header and the pulisic shot but overall good result. weren't threatened much.porto jsut like atletico only were piss poor cheaters and divers

That is why Chilwell>Alonso. The latter could not have scored that goal to save his life with his turtle pace. Chilwell just breezed past them all.

Imagine we would have gone for jadon sancho instead of havertz and  werner.... well you never know. But what we need is a nimble, fast attacker who also has this little bit of bulk and low centre of g

Thought that was one of the poorest performances of the season. Next to zero attacking threat, midfield buildup was nearly nonexistent, allowed Porto to bully us physically. And worst of all was the constant long, aimless passes from our players. We looked like we didn’t have a clue what we were doing.

And yet two fantastic goals and win 0-2.

The problem with Giroud is that if he doesn't score, he offers nothing. He has no pace, no mobility, his link-up play is average at best. And given Tuchel's style of pressing and counter pressing, it just doesn't suit Giroud at all.

As for Abraham, I don't what are the reasons to be exact but we all have had our discussions over him. Maybe Tuchel doesn't rate him for the same reasons that many of us don't. 🤷‍♂️

True with Giroud his lack of mobility doesn’t help but Abraham strikes me as someone who would suit Tuchel’s philosophy. Obviously he is far from a fantastic player but he showed some big improvement at the beginning of the season, particularly linking the play etc also. Plus every player has shown an improvement under Tuchel of sorts. 

Jesus if Chilwell can do what he did tonight in front of goal every week I’d happily see him upfront than either Timo or Kai for a period. Basically played with 9 men for the bulk of the time they were on.

This is literally just the first half as the second leg is played at the same stadium, just in different shirts... Stupid.

The result is what matters most at the end of the day, things really changed when Kante and Thiago came on. Semi-finals here we come!

I hope everyone sees the importance of Kante and Silva now, we dominated after they came on.

OK: Mount, kovacic, mendy, pulisic 

Horrendous: entire back line, jorginho, werner, havertz, giroud

Must starters when real fun starts. In semis.

I'd love to see us play more exciting football, but at this stage of the season even I will say the results are more important than the quality of play and match as a whole. You'll never win a league playing like this but you can win a Cup.

If we are talking specifically about tonight's game, it was shit overall from the team going forward, if we're being honest. Easy to say Werner and Havertz were shit when the service they got was rubbish. Even Mount, despite scoring, didn't do anything of note. On top of that, nothing really changed even after Giroud and Pulisic came on. The few times we got it right attacking wise, we saw Mount score, Werner send his header just over and then Pulisic hit the post.

Yep Chilwell had that one poor game vs Leeds but otherwise he's been decent under TT. Alonso has oscillated between decent and shockers

Thomas Tuchel is only the second Chelsea manager to win his first three #UCL knockout games

 
 

The previous manager to do this was Roberto Di Matteo in 2011-12, the last time Chelsea won the competition

4 games away from winning this thing, and one of them is against Porto and we are already 2-0 up.

Yep! It's quite incredible to still be in with a shout of a trophies and top four, with so few players playing well. But one of the great things we have shown over the years is that we can fight, grind it out and win big trophies even when we're not all that good.
