Chelsea players were in a celebratory mood on Wednesday night.
Who can blame them? After all, they produced an excellent performance to beat Real Madrid 2-0 at Stamford Bridge and reach a third Champions League final in their history.
In truth, the Blues were always in control of the second leg and with Los Blancos looking toothless in attack for large parts, just keeping a clean sheet would have got the job done regardless thanks to last week’s 1-1 draw in Spain.
With that said, Thomas Tuchel’s side didn’t play for a goalless draw, they had enough chances to win by a larger margin but had to settle for goals in either half from Timo Werner and Mason Mount.
Cue emotional scenes at the full-time whistle as Thiago Silva sunk to his knees and Jorginho teared up.
Meanwhile, Eden Hazard shared a joke with Kurt Zouma despite the fact his first return to Stamford Bridge after joining Real Madrid was ruined by his former teammates.
As this was happening, several members of the Chelsea playing squad and staff members embraced on the pitch after setting up an all-English final against Manchester City later this month.
And the post-match reactions carried on in the dressing room.
Left-back Ben Chilwell provided a behind-the-scenes look at a hilarious celebration involving Mount and legendary physio Billy McCulloch.

As seen in the Instagram post above, Mount was doing a little dance while McCulloch brought out some version of the ‘worm’.
