Mason Mount after a fine pass from Jorginho managed to found his way pass the Porto defense and scored in 32minutes.
The 2nd half started with more intensity with Porto asking more question with the Chelsea defense.
Chelsea scored a second goal through Ben Chilwell after finding himself in one on one situation with the keeper.
