(Video): Emerson seals Chelsea’s victory over Atletico Madrid with a fine finish on the counter attack
Emerson is one of just a couple of players who has barely featured under Thomas Tuchel, and the manager clearly wanted to reward him with a couple of minutes here tonight.
The left back made the most of it, he banged in a goal with his first touch as the Blues broke the length of the pitch, and he sent Thiago Silva – watching from the West Stand – absolutely crazy.
We loved the passion all round, and we can’t wait to see who we get in the next round.
Emerson smashed the ball home with his first touch to seal the 3-0 aggregate win for Chelsea 🙌
Look at the celebrations in the stands from Thiago Silva, Mason Mount and Jorginho! 😆🤣 pic.twitter.com/wNX3YZe0Sx
