Goals from Hakim Ziyech and Emerson Palmieri sealed a 2-0 win for the Blues at Stamford Bridge and they're now through to the Champions League quarter-finals.
A number of Chelsea players were heavily praised following the game but one man who went under the radar was Werner.
The 25-year-old assisted Ziyech's goal and it means he now has most goal contributions in the entire team.

On top of that, his willingness to run at the Atletico backline caused all sorts of problems and he deserved a goal for his efforts.
It's been a tough season for Werner and he admitted that he feels guilt about the sacking of previous manager Frank Lampard.
Since arriving from RB Leipzig, he's only managed to score ten times but his overall game is managing to impress.
Fans have reacted to his performance vs Atletico and they think it could be the perfect time for Werner to kick on.

That block before we countered for the Ziyech goal , when this man starts scoring it is going to get very long. https://t.co/STzkTRP8Vw

Ziyech spoke to Chelsea's official website following the game and the former Ajax man said he's beginning to form an understanding with Werner and another summer signing, Kai Havertz.
"It was an important goal and I had to wait a long time for it,' he reflected.
"We took the ball well in midfield and we used it in space and it was a good delivery and it was a good finish.
"It is always a good feeling when you go 1-0 in front and especially when you score it yourself, and the delivery for Timo was good and the pass from Kai before as well.
"It was a good counter-attack and we knew for our game there was a bit more space and there was calmness in our game, and it came at a good moment."
