Chelsea moved second on the table in Uefa Champions league group G after defeating Dynamo Kiev 2-1. we take a look at four things learnt from the game.
The Ghanaian was given another opportunity to impress in the absence of Branislav Ivanovic, and the left back produced his best performance in a blue shirt. The defender dealt with the attacking threat of Yarmolenko so well and even helped his team attack. With Ivanovic recently returning back to training early this week, another performance like this against stoke might just see Jose give the defender a good run of games.
Mourinho: One of us
The Special was once again backed by the Chelsea faithfuls as his name was mentioned at Stamford bridge, the fans rose to a standing ovation and thunderous rounds of applaud followed. The fans also sang the Portuguese name to show their overwhelming emotional support for their manager. At the end of the game, Mourinho was lost of words to describe the gesture shown to him by the fans, the manager thanked the fans and promised to give his all for them. In all it shows that Jose is truly loved and popular amongst the fans.
Willian is gradually becoming the darling of the Bridge
The Brazilian struck the winner last night with a well taken free kick from the left. The Ukrainians had just equalized and many thought what’s been happening in previous games was about to start all over again, the Brazilian stood up and scored a beauty of a winner which sent the Stamford bridge crowd into Jubilation. With the poor form of Eden Hazard, Willian is gradually becoming the golden boy at Chelsea.
Costa can’t get amongst the goals
The striker is currently struggling to score goals for Chelsea and the striker is not helping himself as he is so eager to pick up a fight with opponents or go down in the box too easily in search for a penalty. The Spanish international must put an end to all these antics and get back to scoring goals if he wants to help his team get back on track both domestically and in Europe. The striker was generally ineffective last night against Dynamo Kiev.
