Chelsea booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a comfortable victory over Qarabag in Azerbaijan on Wednesday evening.
And one man, whose performances have created some division among Chelsea fans this season, was the standout player on the night.
The player in question was Willian, who scored two goals and won the Blues two penalties as they ran out 4-0 winners and guaranteed progression to the next stage of the competition.
It seems that Willian has not been the most popular Chelsea player with the fans in recent times. In fact, a large faction of supporters would not object to the sale of the 29-year-old, who is valued at £28.8million by Transfermarkt.
However, the Brazilian’s performance on Wednesday night justified his talents and plenty of Chelsea fans came out in support of Willian following the victory…
Right footed Afro Robben. What a performance Willian. Easily our best player

Willian’s been involved in all 3 goals scored so far. People quick to knock him but he’s been excellent this evening. Delighted for him. #CFC
