Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, has insisted his players responded immediately in the dressing room after a 5-2 defeat to West Brom and in training the next day.
The Blues put behind the shock loss to Sam Allardyce’s side to beat FC Porto 2-0 in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday night.
“It was a tough match against a strong Porto side. There were many moments where we suffered. We accepted it. The circumstances are a bit different in a quarter-final. The spirit was good and it was an excellent result.
“I was pretty sure about that [they’d react well after the WBA defeat]. I saw a response immediately in the dressing room and the next day. That wasn’t a big concern. We were ready to respond. There will always be setbacks in sports. The biggest challenge is to bounce back.
“We had a lot of excellent results together, then we had a loss together and then a reaction after a loss together. That brings us closer together and increases the trust,” Tuchel told BT Sport.
