This was after the Argentine slotted home off the underside of the crossbar to put the Blues ahead in a heated encounter against Burnley on Monday night.

His slightly exaggerated celebration was inspired by the fact of him scoring his first goal in five matches but he got an even better reward for his goal, a hug from a loyal female supporter.
