Chelsea performed perfectly in their 4-0 victory over bottom-dwelling, and soon to be relegated Aston Villa. Chelsea fans should certainly be delighted with a win that puts them closer to the Europa League spots, however, fan reactions were focused on Alexandre Pato’s debut and goal.
Twitter exploded with comments as Alexandre Pato took the pitch in the 23rd minute to replace the injured Loic Remy.

Pato’s presence on the field was felt, as he proceeded to setup good play, one which resulted in the first goal of the match.
Stunning pre-pre-pre-pre assist from Pato

To follow up his already good performance in the match, Pato would actually go on to score via the penalty spot. Twitter lighted up with comments in support of Pato.

In the 4-0 victory, Pato shows that he is ready to make an immediate impact, and could help The Blues end the season on a high note, by qualifying to one of the European spots.
