Willian may not have played a considerable role for Chelsea so far this term, but he looks to be happy with life under Maurizio Sarri.

The Brazilian was forced to watch from the sidelines at times under Antonio Conte. It clearly frustrated him, and led to a major deterioration of his relationship with his manager.

Willian was widely expected to depart in the summer, with both Manchester United and Barcelona being linked. However, a Chelsea player he remains.

Having scored a beauty against Cardiff City at the weekend, Willian will no doubt be keen to push on and force his way into Sarri’s starting eleven.

He’s failed to do so thus far, but he’s not getting disheartened. Willian is incredibly positive about the current state of affairs at Chelsea, as has been reported by Standard Sport:

“He (Sarri) wants us to play. You can see in the games the difference from last season. We play more, we have more possession, we enjoy, we have fun with responsibility. We win five games in a row so we have to continue the same way.”

“I’m happy with the new manager, with the new profile of football. We have a great team atmosphere. We have great players. We can do everything this season to win titles.”

Willian will likely be given a chance to impress against PAOK this evening. Let’s hope he grabs the opportunity with both hands and fires us to victory!
