The Blues were heavily written off for their Champions League clash against Barca.
But it was Chelsea that looked the more dangerous side, with Willian in particular catching the eye.
As well as his constant running and threatening dribbles, he hit the post twice in the first-half.
Willian scored Chelsea’s goal against Barcelona
Eventually he got his goal just after the hour-mark, with a deft finish from outside the box.
Lionel Messi grabbed the equaliser after an Andreas Christiensen error to swing the advantage back in Barca’s favour.
But it was the Brazilian that won all the plaudits after the match.
But former Chelsea star Lampard has told the 29-year-old he must do it on a more consistent basis.
He said: “He was excellent, he was the man. We were all looking at Hazard pre-game but I think Willian was the man tonight.
“You want to see him do that all the time” – Chelsea legend Frank Lampard
“He was unlucky with both of his strikes in the first-half.
“He showed Barcelona what he can do which is to shift to his right foot which we saw twice with a couple of sighters and on the third time he buries it.
“It was an absolutely fantastic goal from him.”
