Chelsea captain John Terry labels Willian goal v Schalke as 'different class'

John Terry

John Terry feels the second Chelsea goal last night was the best of their five-star performance.

Chelsea romped their way into the knockout round of the Champions League last night as they thrashed Schalke 04 5-0 in Gelsenkirchen to also claim top spot.

It was perhaps Chelsea's most complete performance of the season yet as the German side, managed by former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo, presented, on paper, difficult opposition.

But Chelsea made light work of the Bundesliga side, again proving they are a force to be reckoned with in this season's Champions League campaign.

John Terry was the man who got the ball rolling. His early header soon had Chelsea on their way to victory in the Veltins Arena.

But for him it was the second goal that really stood out. Neat and intricate passing from Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Willian resulted in the Brazilian firing goalward. The Schalke keeper Ralf Fahrmann should have done better, but the build up was nonetheless superb.

Terry said of his, and that goal:

"It was important for me to get the goal, I maybe should have scored at the weekend against West Brom and I was disappointed not to then. But I was delighted to get another goal in the Champions League to set us on our way.

"I thought the second goal from Willian was different class as well - great movement the whole way through the team and a great finish, and once the third one went in that was the end of it really."

Chelsea are having a great season and fans of the club will hope to see plenty more goals like this in the upcoming weeks and months.
