Chelsea players still believe in a comeback in Madrid.

Chelsea and their play­ers remain con­vinced that a come­back against Real Madrid at the San­ti­a­go Bern­abeu is pos­si­ble. For them, it is a moun­tain to climb and a return can­not there­fore be ruled out.

Beat­en at home last Wednes­day 1–3 thanks in par­tic­u­lar to an incred­i­ble Karim Ben­ze­ma who slammed a hat-trick, the blues want to be pos­i­tive before the sec­ond leg of the quar­ter-finals of the Cham­pi­ons League against the cur­rent leader of La Liga.

Accord­ing to Mason Mount, 23, the blues won’t give up their crown with­out a fight. He claimed: “Chelsea’s phi­los­o­phy is that we are always under­dogs and we have to climb the moun­tain that some­times seems impos­si­ble. That’s what we have to do now. We have a huge game next week at their house and I hope we can come back and do it.”

A few days before the recep­tion of Real Madrid, Chelsea had already con­ced­ed a humil­i­at­ing 4–1 defeat against Brent­ford in the Pre­mier League. Thomas Tuchel’s foals have there­fore con­ced­ed 7 goals in just 2 games. Mason Mount remains opti­mistic despite his team’s porous defense.

For defend­er Chris­tensen: “We need to fix this as soon as pos­si­ble.”
“It’s foot­ball, every­thing is pos­si­ble, we have to give our all. We know how dif­fi­cult it will be. We have to regroup, attack every game at 100%.

“Every game is a final now. We have a moun­tain to climb but we are Chelsea. If there’s one team that can do it, it’s us.

“We’re going to give it our all because we have this hunger and desire to real­ly achieve something.”

Chelsea will first have to face Southamp­ton this week­end in the Pre­mier League to build con­fi­dence and con­sol­i­date their third place in the Cham­pi­onship before the return match at the San­ti­a­go Bernabeu.
