Chelsea midfielder Mount happy with Porto goal: I'm trying to shoot as much as I can

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount was delighted to score in their Champions League defeat of Porto.

Chelsea took control of their quarterfinal tie last night with a 2-0 first-leg win in Seville.

"I was pleased to score as well and I'm always working on my finishing. I don't think you can work on it enough but in training, I've been shooting as much as I can because I think that's part of my game that I can improve on," Mount told the club's website.

"Scoring more goals is something I want to do, so I'm happy to have got on the scoresheet and most importantly get the win to take into the second leg."

The Blues head into next week's second leg in the driving seat now. Mount, however, insists the team cannot believe the job is done and must be prepared for a reaction from Porto.

"The job is not done and we know that. They are going to come and fight in the second leg and we going to have to be prepared for that and do it all again. We will be ready, that's for sure.

"We came into this game 100 per cent focused and prepared, with the commitment to go and win and we managed to do that. We must take that focus and energy into the second leg too."
