Chelsea vs Real Madrid | Chelsea should have scored five, Claims Mason Mount

Despite producing several opportunities, it took the Blues until the 85th minute to bring the tie away, with Mount powering in a Christian Pulisic cross to seal a 2-0 (3-1 on aggregate) victory. Chelsea took 15 shots, five of which were on goal, as part of a counterattacking strategy that at times lacked the finishing touch.

Nonetheless, Mount was pleased with the rest of Chelsea’s results, emphasizing that “the most important thing is we won” en route to a European final against Manchester City.

“It was a difficult, tough game,” Mount said, according to BT Sport. “They’re going to come in and give it their all, but we worked hard for it. We should’ve got at least five! The most important thing, though, is that we won tonight. We want to head into the game to win it. I’m at a loss for words. Tonight’s show was fantastic.

It was 1-0, so it didn’t matter that if they scored, they’d be back in the game. As you can tell from the celebrations, getting the late goal was a huge goal for us and gave us breathing room in the final five minutes.”

Cesar Azpilicueta, the captain, added: “We have a great squad; everybody works hard in training to be united, compete with everyone, and assist one another. This is huge, and we’ve put together a formidable team. There are many causes for which we must fight.”

Timo Wener Innovation

Timo Werner has been highly chastised this season for failing to convert scoring chances, but his teammates were overjoyed when he scored the first goal.

“‘It would have seemed like a lifetime for the ball to come down,’ I told Timo. We’re all waiting for him with bated breath,” Mount recalled.

On May 29, Chelsea will face Manchester City in an all-English final. It will be their fourth meeting of the season. They have met in the FA Cup semi-finals and twice in the Premier League.
