Chelsea fans were full of praise with their German midfielder Andre Schurrle on Wednesday night after he scored against Sporting Lisbon.
The versatile 24-year-old managed to score a lovely goal to give Chelsea a 2-0 lead in a game where they eventually ran out 3-1 winners. Schurrle doesn’t get into Mourinho’s favourite XI, with the likes of Willian often selected ahead of him. But the German’s performance on Wednesday would have helped convince Mourinho a little bit more about his quality.
Here’s how the Chelsea fans reacted to Schurrle’s performance:
@chelseafc Schurrle should play more. More eye for the ball than Willian.

Can't believe Schurrle doesn't get more minutes for Chelsea and Podolski for the Gooners…class acts, machines!
