“It was a tough fight and we had to work hard at times to escape the pressure. They played in a very fluid and aggressive way.
“They showed that they can change positions all the time, they come up behind and overlap and then, in the next instance, they can underlap. So we had to be ready to adapt to their many movements.
“With every minute that went by, we did that even better and overall I am very happy with how we defended and managed this difficult game.
“There was a lot of work to do without praise; there was nobody here to cheer you for a tackle. A lot of hard work in secret was done, and that is why I am very happy.”
Chelsea are through to the Semi final and will either face the winner between Real Madrid and Liverpool.
