It didn't take long for the fireworks to start in Chelsea's FA Cup semifinal against Tottenham. By the fifth minute, the Blues had opened the scoring against Spurs with a brilliant free kick from Willian.

Willian lined up alongside fellow Brazilian David Luiz behind the free kick, which Martin Atkinson gave following a foul by Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld. Luiz, whose more known for his rip-it-as-hard-as-you-can-and-see-what-happens approach, deferred to the more finesse-focused Willian.

It proved to be a wise decision as Willian slotted home a beauty past the outstretched fingertips of Hugo Lloris. It might have taken the slightest of deflections, but looked as though it was always going to get past the Spurs net-minder.

The lead was short-lived, though, as Spurs responded with a cheeky diving header from ace Harry Kane to even things up in the 18th minute. The goals are flying at Wembley, that's for sure.
