- Willian included in WhoScored’s Champions League team of the week.
- Brazilian scored and hit the post twice during the game.
- WATCH: Willian bags stunning finish against Barcelona.
A Chelsea star has been included in WhoScored’s Champions League team of the week – and there’s no prizes for guessing who it is.
The Premier League champions were written off by the majority of the media and rival fans heading into our first-leg clash with La Liga heavyweights Barcelona.
However, Antonio Conte set-up his side to perfection and limited Barcelona’s opportunities. The contest finished 1-1, but we could be taking a two or three goal advantage to the Nou Camp if fortune favoured the Blues.
It was Willian who scored the goal to give Chelsea the lead in the second-half. The Brazilian could have bagged a brace, or even a hat-trick, having struck the woodwork twice in quick succession during the opening period.
Willian was superb, and he has earned himself a spot in WhoScored’s Champions League team of the week. There are no other Chelsea, nor Barcelona, representatives.
More of that in the second-leg please, Willian…
