(Video) Ben Chilwell picks Porto’s pocket to present Chelsea essential cushion
Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell rose when his side needed him most.
Despite taking an early lead against Porto in Wednesday night’s Champions League quarter-finals thanks to a goal from Mason Mount, he has spent much of the game under cover.
The Portuguese opponents of the Blues have fought valiantly and had it not been for a late decisive save by goalkeeper Mendy, Chelsea could easily make it into the second leg with 1-1.
