A few weeks ago, Chelsea looked to be on the ropes, but now things seem a lot brighter at Stamford Bridge.
After wins against Grimsby Town in the League Cup and Brighton in the Premier League, the Blues followed that up with another victory on Wednesday night, this time in the Champions League.

It was a tight affair at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy against Lille, and it looked for a long time like Frank Lampard and co would have to make do with a point. Fortunately, Brazil international Willian was on hand to give his side the lead in the last 15 minutes and they were then able to hold on for a 2-1 victory.
Kepa Arrizabalaga, in particular, deserves credit for the way he kept the opposition out. He made some important saves before and after the break, whilst also showing himself to be alert in one-on-one situations with the opposition.
The south-west London outfit’s supporters were delighted with his display, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts. You can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
KEPA – MASSIVE PART IN OUR 3 POINTS AGAINST LILLE
First of all a massive happy birthday to @kepa_46 ?
In recent times he has been harshly scrutinised but once again he showed the world why he is deemed as one of the best GK in the world.
Let’s recap his performance…

To be quite honest, Kepa is the one that has won us the match last night with his fantastic save on that Lille Counter.
That Snake Courtois could’ve never saved that.

Boys were superb tonight, great to see such a young and talented side with blue blood in their veins, we have our club back. Defence were immense, @KurtZouma, tamori, Dave and kepa. We have a lot to learn but proud of the boys, great support from the fans in Lille.@WeAre_TheShed

Superb win from Chelsea. Defensively solid, handled Lille’s counter attacks superbly. Kepa and Tomori the standout performers for me, they were impeccable.
