Brazilian winger Willian is the new darling at Stamford Bridge, and the 27-year-old stepped up to the plate once more to score during Chelsea’s 2-0 victory against Porto on Wednesday night.
With Chelsea already leading 1-0 in the match, the Brazilian winger settled any nerves the crowd may have had, by hitting a thunderous drive into the net on 52 minutes.
The Blues’ victory in West London this evening, means not only do Jose Mourinho’s side qualify for the knockout stages of the competition, but they do so as group winners.
The commitment and desire on show by Willian and the rest of his Chelsea teammates will please Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea fans.
At the full time whistle, Chelsea fans took to Twitter to praise Willian, a player who has really stepped up to the plate so far this season.
Check out some of the Tweets from some very happy Chelsea fans below.
