Chelsea Keep Their Hopes Alive

Chelsea eased the pressure on manager Jose Mourinho as Willian’s late free kick gave them a crucial Champions League victory over Dynamo Kiev at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho has been suffering, with the defending champions a desperate 15th in the Premier League.
And he looked to be heading for more frustration as Aleksandar Dragovic made amends for his first-half own goal by taking advantage of keeper Asmir Begovic’s error from a corner to equalise with only 13 minutes left.
Mourinho, who was supported by the Samford Bridge faithfuls throughout may have feared the worst but Willian responded in style with a spectacular 25-yard free-kick with some minutes left on the clock.
The win moves the Blues into second place in Group G, three points behind leaders Porto but now with a two-point cushion to Dynamo Kiev.
