The Chelsea squad looked in understandably good spirits after their 2-1 win at Aston Villa on Saturday kept Jose Mourinho’s men top of the Premier League table.

Eden Hazard gave Chelsea the lead in the eighth minute at Villa Park but Paul Lambert’s men equalised through Jores Okore’s header at the start of the second half.

However, Chelsea went ahead again shortly after thanks to Branislav Ivanovic’s 66th-minute goal.

And midfielder Willian used his Instagram account to celebrate the victory on Saturday evening.

The Brazilian uploaded the photo above onto the photo-sharing app and wrote: “Great win boys!!! #CFC #primierleague #comeonchelsea”

The victory meant that Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points after Manchester City’s 1-1 draw with Hull City on Saturday.
