Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish delivered a three-word response to Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Mason Mount on Wednesday night after they starred on the Champions League stage.
The Blues beat Porto 2-0 in the Champions League quarter-finals, as they took control of the two-legged tie with two away goals.
Mount, 22, scored a first-half opener with a low finish to the bottom corner after a sublime first-time touch to get past a defender.
24-year-old Chilwell then added a late second goal after showing great composure to take the ball around the goalkeeper and slot in.
Grealish, who has played alongside the Chelsea pair for England, gave his three-word reaction on Instagram to the Porto win by saying “love it lads” in response to a picture of the Blues pair.
Additionally, there were also replies from Chelsea teammates Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Billy Gilmour to Chilwell’s celebratory Instagram post.

If you were concerned the English core was going to be ripped out of the Chelsea team when Tuchel took charge as manager, you were majorly wrong.
Mount is arguably the standout player at Stamford Bridge right now, which is a massive credit to him given how much money has been spent to assemble the squad.
Meanwhile, the English wing-back pairing of Chilwell and Reece James were both outstanding against Porto.
