Speaking at his post-match news conference, Tuchel said: “Mason and Ben did very well to get their goals, which were important goals for the team.

“Mason played a very good game, he linked up well with Reece down the right side and his goal was a very crisp and clinical strike. He deserved that because he played a good game.

“It came in a moment where we suffered a lot, and where we felt the team was a bit too tense and not precise enough.

“We lacked a bit of freedom to adapt positions but the finishing was clinical and excellent from Mason.

“He has the quality to do this and to do it in a quarter-final is a big step for him and a big help for the team so I’m very happy for the two [of them].”

Tuchel’s side will take on FC Porto in the return leg of the Champions League tie on Tuesday night next week.

Before that, the Blues will play Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
