All the latest news and views from Stamford Bridge.
Judging by the body language and choice of tone Jose Mourinho employed when speaking to the press before the second leg of Chelsea's must-win match-up against Paris Saint Germain at Stamford Bridge it would not have been out of place to suggest that the Portuguese was cracking under the pressure.
Despite his accolades, his title-winning experience and his tactical nous, Mourinho - who has lost his command of the Premier League table - appeared flustered, annoyed, like he had had enough, like he was… human.
Chelsea, though, went on to win by the exact margin (2-0) they needed to secure their place in the lucrative final four of the Champions League. Mourinho, of course, isn't human - he's more than a mortal, he's a savvy operator in Europe and now has more semifinal appearances than the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson.
While Demba Ba drew the post-match accolades for his late strike, the club's second that would send them through to the penultimate stage of the tournament, some of the focus after the game concentrated on the loss of Eden Hazard, who was brought off the field after just 17 minutes.
Hazard, speaking to French television moments after he left the pitch, allayed fears that it would be a lengthy layout as he insisted it was merely precautionary, however, Jose Mourinho is not as optimistic and said he could be out of action for "weeks".
The obvious implication here is that he may not be fit for a: the potential title-deciding game against Liverpool and b: the two legs of the Champions League semi-final that sandwich the Premier League dust-up with the Reds.
The photograph above of Frank Lampard and John Terry shows the Chelsea duo are as passionate as they have ever been and recent recruit Andre Schurrle explained that the two even helped give the team-talk that led to their inspiring victory over PSG.
"Players like John Terry and Frank Lampard, they talked to the team, they said to the team we can do it. It was great. I did believe we could do it, yes, 100 per cent, absolutely."
Amazingly, Schurrle has already absorbed what it means to be a true Blue, despite only really beginning his career at SW6. The German said that he was bowled over by the atmosphere generated by the fans - and that it even led him to tears!
“It was unbelievable, a great feeling. The last minutes were extraordinary. That is why I am here. To play for Chelsea because of these nights. It’s a great club, you saw the supporters after the match, it’s the best feeling in the world - I had tears in my eyes."
Willian published a video of the atmosphere on his official Instagram account, even hashtagging it Blue-skin.
