Goals from Mount and Ben Chilwell give Chelsea a two-goal advantage ahead of Champions League quarter-final second leg

Superb individual goals from English pair Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell gave Chelsea a 2-0 win away to Porto in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday in Seville as the Londoners made the most of their few chances.

Midfielder Mount ran on to an incisive pass from Jorginho then swivelled to get past a defender before firing the ball low and hard into the far corner to prise Porto open in the 32nd minute and score his first Champions League goal.

Left-back Chilwell also got off the mark in Europe's top competition to grab Chelsea a second away goal in the 85th to take into the second leg on April 13, which will also be played at Sevilla's Sanchez Pizjuan stadium due to coronavirus restrictions on travel between Portugal and England.
