'So proud of you' - Chelsea team-mate praises Willian on Twitter

David Luiz was full of praise for his team-mate Willian today.

Yesterday saw Chelsea go top of the Premier League, at least for 24 hours anyway, with a comfortable 3-0 win against Stoke City at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho sprung something of a surprise by leaving Eden Hazard on the bench for the game - resting the Belgian ahead of the Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain this week.

But he needn’t worry - as two players who came in had a great game.

Willian and Mohamed Salah are both new to the club but have seemingly settled in very quickly to Blue life.

Salah scored yesterday - but the man of the match was the Brazilian star.

He cost a whopping £32 million from Anzhi Makhachkala last summer and has become a fan favourite for his hard work as well as his samba skills.

But a little bit of magic was needed for his goal.

He tucked away a wonderful effort from outside the box beyond the despairing hands of Asmir Begovic - and his countryman and team-mate David Luiz was more than impressed.

Never afraid to show affection for a team-mate the defender-come-midfielder took to Twitter to send his congratulations to his team-mate - along with a picture of him with another Brazilian Oscar.
