Chelsea's Second Goal Against Qarabag Was A Thing Of Beauty

Chelsea have disappointed this season so far, but against Qarabag Wednesday they had a moment when it all clocked, when everything moved together like parts of a Swiss watch.
This was just a beautiful team move from Chelsea. https://t.co/qDIGNpqxv5— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) November 22, 2017
Two of Chelsea's other two goals in a 4-0 win were penalties, and one was a right-footed rocket from Willian (the sort of golazo he's known for scoring) but that second one is just perfect. It's what every manager is hoping for, attacking players moving themselves and the ball in sync perfectly suck to rip a defense to shreds and leave the opponent with no chance at all.
There are like three moments in this move that make you think "wow that was cool" but you can't think it all the way through because another cool thing has happened.
Did Qarabag's badness have anything to do with this goal? Probably, but we can still appreciate it all the same. You don't get to choose the teams you score amazing goals against. They just happen.
