Timo Werner has won a new fan in Thiago Silva's wife, just a week after she ripped into him for his performance in the Champions League semi final first leg.
Werner put Chelsea well on the way to a first Champions League final since 2012 on Wednesday night, opening the scoring vs Real Madrid in the first half.
It put the Blues 2-1 up on aggregate and leaving Zinedine Zidane's team needing a goal just to take things to extra time, something that looked unlikely considering Chelsea's dominance.
In truth the Premier League side should have come away from the Bernabeu last Tuesday with no doubt about their place in the final, such was their dominance for much of the first leg.
It was Werner's first half miss from four yards out that summed up their troubles in Spain, leading to Silva's wife Belle to take to Instagram and slam her husband's teammate.
However all is now forgiven! Following the German's 28th minute goal, Belle jumped back on social media, this time shouting "That's what I'm talking about. You know how to score a goal. You're the best, my friend!"
Much like in Madrid, Werner thought he was going to put Chelsea ahead early on, although this time he did put the ball in the back of the net.
The linesman had other ideas and waved his flag for the former RB Leipzig striker being in an offside position from Ben Chilwell's cross, after 18 minutes.
He only had to wait 10 minutes to break the deadlock though, he played a one-two with N'Golo Kante who then found Kai Havertz. The German forward chipped the ball over Thibaut Courtois and onto the bar, with Werner heading home the rebound.

A beautiful one-two in the build-up, before Havertz goes so close to scoring a delicious chip...

Whilst Edouard Mendy did have to make a couple of good saves in the first half, after the break was pretty much all Chelsea.
Whilst the talk before kick off had been about Eden Hazard, it was fellow former Blues player Courtois who kept Real in it as long as they were, as well as some poor finishing from Chelsea, saving from Mason Mount and Havertz.
However the Belgian couldn't keep Thomas Tuchel's side out again and Mount wrapped things up in the 85th minute, converting after good work from N'Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic.
Mason Mount! :boom:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) May 5, 2021
After so many wasted opportunities, Chelsea FINALLY have their second goal of the night!
They're so close to Istanbul now! :pray: pic.twitter.com/U6skxXPCMv
Wener better hope he scores against Manchester City in the final, or he'll have Belle Silva to answer to...
