Jose praise Chelsea wide man

According to Football London, the Portuguese tactician heaped praises on the Brazil international, who he is a renowned admirer of.

Jose admits the forward is an amazing footballer that made life difficult for his team with the goal.

The Brazilian netted the Blues only goal of the match in the first 45mins to put the visitors in front, but goals from Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard gave the Red Devils a vital win in the top-four finish race.

Brilliant assist, good goal

Belgium international forward Eden Hazard picked out the wide man with a scintillating defence-splitting through pass before he fired a powerful shot beyond Spain international goalkeeper David De Gea, but his effort on the afternoon was not enough for the reigning Champions.
