Let’s party! Chelsea stars hit the town after epic Champions League victory
Chelsea’s comeback kings celebrated their Champions League triumph with a late-night party in London.
Stars such as Ashley Cole and Didier Drogba hit the town after their 4-1 extra-time win over Napoli booked their place in Friday’s draw for the quarter-finals.
The Blues heroes headed to Aura nightclub in Mayfair to mark what could be a turning point in their rollercoaster season.
Part-owned by QPR chief Tony Fernandes, the exclusive club is described as ‘a haven of rich heritage and grandeur’.
Juan Mata, David Luiz, Michael Essien, Florent Malouda, Jose Bosingwa and match-winner Branislav Ivanovic were also out, although there was no sign of Chelsea veterans John Terry and Frank Lampard.
After the departure of manager Andre Villas-Boas, it appears the players have pulled together closer in a bid to save their campaign.
And judging by the smiles on the players faces, they are happy with the way the club is now going.
PS… Didn’t fancy it, Andriy?
Former Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko was at the match with owner Roman Abramovich but it looked like he called it a night after grabbing a lift home with Ivanovic.
