The man for the big occasion does it for Chelsea… again

Branislav Ivanovic may not be a fashionable player and he may be a right-back, but he sure does pop up with massive goals. Just a few weeks ago he headed in in extra-time against Liverpool to put Chelsea into the League Cup Final, the season before last he was a Europa League hero and he’s also pitched in with vital efforts against big sides such as Manchester City in league action. So, it’s only natural he was the man to step up in Paris, using his head to divert home a Gary Cahill flick.

The Blues had been under the cosh for much of the opening 35 minutes against PSG, but the big Serbian took advantage a top save from Thibaut Courtois at the other end just minutes earlier with a neat header. Advantage Chelsea, who may find this away goal to be vital after 180 minutes.
