PHOTO: Chelsea star Willian wins new fans at Shrewsbury Town

Chelsea attacker Willian spent time after the match at Shrewsbury Town with opposition fans.

Fans and opposing players rarely mix at Premier League football grounds, and with good reason.

Yet it was very different at New Meadow last night as Chelsea's superstars and millionaires took on League Two Shrewsbury Town.

The Football League side gave Chelsea a real battle in the League One Cup contest, with Chelsea coming away with a 2-1 victory.

Chelsea's Willian was one of a number of players who spent time after the game with Shrewsbury fans, signing autographs and posing for photos.

It isn't every day a team in England's fourth tier lands a plum draw with a Premier League leading side, and whether instructed to by Jose Mourinho, or a decision made of their own accord, Chelsea's stars deserve praise for taking a little time out and delaying their trip home by half an hour or so.
