Chelsea lost 1-0 to Porto last night in the Champions League but won the tie 2-1 on aggregate, progressing into the Semi Finals of the competition.
The game was not overly pretty to watch, but a lot of that was down to the officiating, or lack of it.

Porto were fouling Chelsea the entire game and in particular targeting Christian Pulisic, and largely escaping punishment whilst doing so.
In fact, according to ESPN below, Christian Pulisic was fouled 11 times against Porto. The most in the UCL since Lionel Messi vs. Real Madrid in 2011.
He lasted the whole 90 minutes, well battled Pulisic!
