And not just every excellent touch! Every good touch, too. And every bad one, the few that there were. (That bad layoff to Costa soon after Chelsea's first goal comes to mind.)
Overall, yet another great performance from Chelsea's best player of the season. Has anyone come even remotely close? Hopefully others start stepping up now — Hazard put in a good shift tonight, for example, while Ramires is playing some of his most influential football in like three years — and we can truly kick on from here.
"I think we played well but we had a difficult moment during part of the second half. They scored the goal but we fought until the end and I scored the second goal, it was very good for us."
"Confidence is coming for us and the results are coming as well. We have to keep going and keep fighting on the pitch. We lost some games and it's been difficult for us but we are trying to play better. We know we have to improve more and keep going in the same way."

In a later post-match interview with UEFA, Willian called his free kick "one of the best I have ever taken". Later, in a quick chat with Bleacher Report's Garry Hayes, he called it, simply, "a beautiful goal". I couldn't possibly agree more.
