Has Willian just produced the most obscure piece of skill this season?
It’s fair to say the Brazilian midfielder is in the groove against Hull tonight, opening the scoring with a beautiful finish inside two minutes and then adding a second half an hour later.
Willian followed his first strike with a number of stylish flicks and tricks as he continued to wow the Stamford Bridge crowd.
And one particular piece of skill will likely be shared infinitely by the YouTube compilation merchants.
Collecting a short corner from Cesc Fabregas, Willian initially looked to whip a cross into the Hull box.
With a couple of swift movements, the Brazilian ‘elasticoed’ the ball through two Hull players and returned it to Fabregas.
But did he mean it?
Initially it looked like he was trying to take on the defender himself rather than find his team-mate.
Whether it was intentional or not it was certainly easy on the eye.
