Mario Melchiot and Edwin van der Sar take to Twitter as Chelsea lose to Porto

Willian levelled for the west London side with a brilliant free-kick after Andre Andre had put Jose Mourinho’s former side into a 1-0 lead.

Here is a selection of the best Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to the English champions’s 2-1 loss.
