Jorginho claims the ‘hurt’ of defeat to West Brom inspired Chelsea’s Champions League triumph over Porto.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are on the verge of the semi-finals after a 2-0 win in Seville last night.

Goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell secured a quarter-final first leg victory — and went some way to easing the pain of Saturday’s 5-2 defeat to relegation-threatened West Brom.

Jorginho said: “That feeling wasn’t that good. It hurt. It was something for us to learn from.

“We are all happy for this result, but for the second game we need to stay humble. We don’t need to think we have the advantage because it will be a mistake. We need to stay calm.”

Despite the match being played at a neutral venue, Chelsea were officially the away team last night, meaning they go into the ‘home’ leg next week — also in Seville — with an advantage of two away goals.
