Chelsea faced off against Porto at Stamford Bridge earlier in the evening as they looked to pick up a positive result on their home turf. It’s the visitors who won tonight as Mehdi Taremi scored a spectacular goal in added time to secure a 1-0 win; however, it’s the Blues who proceed into the semi-finals with a 2-1 aggregate win.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player performed during the match against the Dragons.

Edouard Mendy – 6.5/10

The Senegalese shot-stopper had a couple of nervy moments in the first half but looked fairly comfortable in the second forty-five minutes. However, he will be disappointed for conceding a goal in the added time.

Cesar Azpilicueta – 7/10

The Spaniard was a rock at the back tonight. He timed his tackles to perfections and even covered for Reece James whenever required.

Thiago Silva – 8/10

The 36-year-old centre-back took up all the right positions. He made some important clearances and blocks to keep things tidy at the back.

Antonio Rudiger – 6.5/10

The German defender gave away the ball easily on a couple of occasions which could have cost his side.

Reece James – 7/10

The England international was more focused on the attacking side of his game. He made some good runs down the right-hand side to help his side.

Jorginho – 8/10

The Italian midfielder made some clever interceptions at the centre of the park to neutralise Porto’s counter-attacks.

N’Golo Kante – 7.5/10

The Frenchman covered every blade of the grass tonight. He kept looking for ways to win the ball back and set up attacks. Paired well with Jorginho throughout.

Ben Chilwell – 6.5/10

The English full-back looked a bit sloppy tonight, but overall, he managed to put up a decent defensive performance.

Christian Pulisic – 7/10

The winger’s swift movement was a constant source of nuisance for the Porto defenders. He kept drawing fouls time and again.

Mason Mount – 7/10

The youngster worked tirelessly in the opposition half to create some meaningful chances for his teammates.

Kai Havertz – 6.5/10

The German international struggled to time his runs to perfection.
