Eden Hazard believes Chelsea's win at Atletico Madrid was their best Champions League performance in his five years at Stamford Bridge.
Michy Batshuayi's goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time saw Chelsea come from behind to win at Atletico as Diego Costa watched on.
Alvaro Morata had earlier cancelled out Antoine Griezmann's opener from the penalty spot.
Asked if the performance was the Blues' best of the season, Hazard told Chelsea TV: "Yes, in the Champions League also. Since I came here it's the first time we've beaten a really good, really strong team in the Champions League.
"We did well, from the first (whistle) to the end of the game. That means we are a good team, we have good players."
Hazard was making his second start of the season following his broken ankle - the first was in the Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest - and he dazzled at times.
The Belgium playmaker is reportedly in negotiations to extend his Chelsea contract and receive a pay rise to become the highest paid player in the Premier League on £300,000 per week. Hazard's current deal, which expires in 2020, was signed in February 2015.
The 26-year-old joined the Blues soon after their European Cup triumph in May 2012 and they suffered the ignominy of becoming the first holders to exit at the group stage the following season.
Chelsea responded by winning the Europa League and reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2013-14, losing to Atletico after beating Paris St Germain.
Hazard praised Batshuayi and Morata for their goals, which came in the first match since Costa's return to Atletico was completed.
Costa watched on from the stands at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano as Morata scored his seventh goal in eight games since his arrival from Real Madrid.
Hazard added: "That's why they're on the pitch, to try to score goals. And we are here to create something.
"I'm just happy for them, for Alvaro, for Michy. They're top strikers. Both of them deserve to score goals and they did.
"It was good. Not just at the end of the game, for the whole game we did well.
"We should've scored more goals than two. Sometimes it's good to win at the last second.
"We came here to try to win this game and we did. We're happy."
Man United have not given up hope of signing Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann and Pep Guardiola is on the hunt for another full-back.Read the full story ›

Forward Eden Hazard is set to start for Chelsea for the first time this season in Wednesday night's Carabao Cup clash with Nottingham Forest.
Defender David Luiz is suspended for three games and winger Pedro is unlikely to be risked due to a leg injury, while midfielder Danny Drinkwater (calf) is also absent.
Striker Michy Batshuayi could start, with young players Charly Musonda and Kenedy also expected to be given first-team opportunities in a rotated squad.
Chelsea squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Kante, Morata, Hazard, Bakayoko, Moses, Kenedy, Musonda, Zappacosta, Willian, Batshuayi, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Clarke-Salter, Scott, Eduardo.
