Having been held at home to Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday evening, one man in particular continued to stand out for Chelsea, with Willian putting in a performance of the highest quality.
The Brazil international, who scored Chelsea’s only goal of the game with a tidy passed finish into the bottom corner, had the opportunity to add more to his tally on the night.
The £28.8million winger, as valued by Transfermarkt, was instrumental in the game and proved to be Chelsea’s main attacking threat, as the Stamford Bridge outfit elected to start the match without a recognised frontman.
But the 49-cap international has found starts in the Premier League hard to come by this season with just 13 – the same amount of appearances he’s made from the bench.
We asked Chelsea fans in our poll if he should be starting the huge clash with Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford and the results were almost unanimous.
95% of those asked believe Willian should keep his place in the starting line-up, but could that be at the expense of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud again?
