Chelsea thrashed Hull City 4-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge on Friday night, and Blues fans were impressed with Willian’s performance.
The Premier League holders reached the quarter-finals of the prestigious cup competition with a comfortable win against the Championship outfit, and the Brazilian, rated at €32m (£28.3m) according to Transfermarkt, ran the show for the hosts, scoring their opening goal in the second minute.
The 29-year-old has been in and out of the team in the Premier League this season with the Stamford Bridge faithful often getting on his back, but he has now put himself in contention to start in the Champions League tie against Barcelona in the Camp Nou on Tuesday night.
Chelsea supporters were quick to have their say on the attacker’s display via social media, and while one said “Willian HAS to start against Barcelona”, more than one person also described his display as “sensational”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Poor as Hull were, Willian was superb last night. Good to see the youngsters come on as well. #cfc

Brilliant performance tonight, comfortable win & through to the next round, @willianborges88 was outstanding, ran the game, scored 2 world class goals & unlucky not to bag a hat-trick! Cesc to Pedro was top class too, nice for @_OlivierGiroud_ to get off the mark! #CFC #FACup
