13 dribbles, 9 key passes - Chelsea trio shine v Galatasaray

Oscar for Chelsea

Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian were at it again on Tuesday night.

They're so good, it's no longer a surprise. This is the creative force Chelsea's owners have reportedly wanted for years and now they've got it.

But what perhaps was surprising seeing all three of the Blues on song at the same time against Galatasaray.

Jose Mourinho's men beat the Turkish side 2-0 with a comfortable second-leg display at Stamford Bridge, sealing progression to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-1 aggregate win.

And according to match stats on WhoScored.com, their attacking midfield triumvirate weren't far off their best.

Between them, Hazard, Oscar and Willian made 13 successful dribbles and nine key passes, also managing four shots on target and seven crosses in total.

Unsurprisingly, it was 23-year-old Hazard who stole the show with the ball at his feet, making nine of the trio's 13 successful dribbles - one short of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's total against Bayern Munich last week.

It was more of an even affair in terms of key passes, however, with Hazard and Oscar making four each. Indeed, last night's European tie was somewhat of a return to form for the latter.

The midfielder covered over 9.6 kilometres in distance and even made three tackles. After a disappointing last few weeks for the Blues, Chelsea fans will be hoping the 22-year-old can produce more of the same in the coming games.

Of the three, it was Willian who perhaps produced the flattest display - though the former Anzhi man still played his part, completing 86 per cent of his passes and making four out of five long passes. The Brazilian also made three turnovers - the most of anyone in the Chelsea side.

If the statistics are to be believed, then, Mourinho's side well and truly bounced back from their 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa at the weekend - and, as well as the likes of their back four and Frank Lampard, they once again have their attacking trio to thank.
