Willian has lifted the lid on his goal celebration style during Chelsea's win at Crystal Palace

Willian has revealed that he was mimicking Chelsea legend Didier Drogba with his goal celebration during the Blues’ 3-0 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The west London side kicked off 2016 with an impressive victory at Selhurst Park thanks to goals from Oscar, Willian and Diego Costa.

The Brazilian forward has been one of the Blues’ most consistent performers in a difficult season for Chelsea, in which a disastrous start to the campaign has left their title defence in tatters.

And Willian has explained his goal celebration after firing home a brilliant strike to make it 2-0 against Crystal Palace.

Willian shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Celebrating like my bro @didierdrogba”
