George Weah made a remarkable debut for Chelsea by scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
The former World and European Football of the Year joined Chelsea on loan from AC Milan for the rest of the season, little more than 24 hours before kick-off.
After receiving international clearance from the Italian Football Association, he made an immediate impact by coming on as a late substitute and scoring the only goal of the match with an 87th-minute header from a Dennis Wise cross.
Afterwards the Liberian international striker said: "It's a good beginning. I'm hoping to do great things in London and I'm very happy that [the manager] Gianluca [Vialli] believes in me."
The 33-year-old was in his fifth season at Milan at the time of the move after spells with Monaco and Paris St Germain.
Despite three Barclays Premier League goals in 11 appearances, Chelsea manager Gianluca Vialli decided not to buy Weah permanently in the summer.
However, Weah did stay in England and joined Manchester City, but only had a short spell there before rejoining Marseille.
