Speaking on the NUFC official website, Jonas Gutierrez said that he said a prayer to his grandma, who had died a few years previous.
He prayed for the return of form that had deserted him and explained what the celebration of scoring a goal was about.
'My celebration was for my grandma, who passed away a few years ago,'
'I always remember her and I asked her to give me a hand and help me. That is why when I scored I thought about the fact that she is always with me and I said thank you to her.'
'It has been a hard time for me so the goal was a good starting point for me to be a better player again.
'I haven't been playing as well as I wanted to and that has made me feel sad, so it was important for me to score and build my confidence again. I now want to continue to get better in the games over the next few months.'
'It was such an important win for us,'
'We knew that it would be a tough game against a Chelsea team who towards the top of the league.
'We had to be strong at home and we were, so the three points were really important.
'Over the 90 minutes I think we were the better team and deserved to win. We tried to press high, didn't allow them to play and then we tried to create opportunities.
'In the first half we were the only team that wanted to win the game. In the second half they came back at us and scored two fantastic goals, and then from there the game went a bit crazy - it was going from keeper to keeper!
'But overall we played a great game and had the gift of the final goal.
'We are now closer to the sides in the middle of the table and pulling away from those in the relegation zone. If we continue to pick up points like we have done this week then we will be fine.'
