Chelsea produced a performance of the highest quality on Saturday to defeat Brighton & Hove Albion away from home in the English Premier League.
The Blues know they need to keep winning if they’re to finish in the top four this season and after two consecutive draws in league action, the three points were even more important this weekend.
Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses provided the goals on the afternoon to secure the victory, with Antonio Conte’s side stringing together some wonderful team moves to fashion chances.
The build-up to Willian’s goal was beautiful in particular and will surely be a contender for one of the best team goals of the season.
The Brazilian, who is rated at round £29m by Transfermarkt, started and finished the move to put his side 2-0 up, a well earned goal in what was a great showing for the player.
The attacker has been criticised at times this season but having now provided eight goals and 10 assists in all competitions for the Blues, fans are beginning to recognise his important contribution.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance against Brighton…
Willian and Hazard need to play together more often.
Absolutely brilliant performance from both of them. #CFC

Willian was also excellent today, he has been better recently, and that goal was world class. I’ve been his biggest critic this season but if he carries on playing like that he should be in the team #cfc

Eden Hazard was brilliant today, but Willian deserves some praise as well. Great work rate, linked up well with Hazard & Batshuayi, and scored a great goal. Class performance.#CFC #BHACHE pic.twitter.com/J0xgap6jbI

Willian's goal was breathtaking, the build-up play was perfect, and he produced a stunning finish. 9 goals and 8 assists this season, he's proving to be an important player! #CFC
