Willian has not been an automatic starter ever since Conte has taken charge. Despite not being an automatic starter, he has made it clear that he is not looking for an exit.
The Brazil International spoke to the reporters after Chelsea’s resounding 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town where he stated: “I am always happy here at Chelsea, I really like this club a lot with my heart so I am very happy here, I hope that I won’t leave in January. I am happy here and the fans can be calm, I am a Chelsea player.”
The midfielder also spoke about Chelsea’s title hopes which hang in balance, as they are 14 points behind the leaders Manchester City.
“I think on Saturday we had a bad game when we lost against West Ham, but we turned the situation around and played very well… We have to play in this same way always to try to win the games. The gap is now 11 points and I think we have to fight until the end.” Willian concluded by stating that anything is possible in football and they have to strive hard until the end.
Willian has made 143 appearances for The Blues so far since his £30 million transfer from Anzhi Makhachkala. He has scored 2 goals and has 3 assists to his name this season in 8 starts. He has mostly been used as a substitute so far this season and is having a lackluster run.
Despite that fact, Jose Mourinho has targeted him for a potential transfer to end The Red Devils’ nagging right-wing issues.
Willian has been instrumental in Chelsea’s title wins this decade. His impeccable chemistry with forwards along with crossing and dribbling ability makes him an asset to any club. Willian will have to fight for his place alongside Pedro, his contributions for The Blues will be crucial as to where they end up at the end of the season.
