The Brazilian scored a sensational free kick to open the scoring for Chelsea against Stoke City earlier today.
Chelsea moved 13 points clear at the top of the table as they defeated Stoke City 2-1 in a nervy encounter. Gary Cahill provided the winner for Conte’s Blues but it was Willian who stole the show with a superb curler.
Watch Chelsea number 22 beating Stoke Goalie Lee Grant at his near post as Stoke prepare for a cross. He did catch the defence by surprise.

Eden Hazard was certainly not missed tonight. Chelsea fans must be jumping with joy after tonight’s gritty performance. The Premier League title race is certainly done and dusted.
