Willian reckons victory against the Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev the other day in a European clash shows that Chelsea is starting to find a bit of confidence again.
The Blues beat Kiev 2-1 with Willian playing a major role in that, converting a free kick at a crucial juncture.
Willian has actually been somebody, who unlike most of the other Chelsea players, has not come for much criticism recently. He has produced the goods.
The Brazil international has made 16 appearances in Chelsea jersey across all competitions in the season so far and has put the ball into the net 5 times which is not a bad performance at all.
Talking to the press yesterday, he said, “I think it’s all falling in place for us. Confidence wise, we are getting there and the results are only going to help. It was important to try and secure three points over here and we will have to capitalize on this win now. It’s not been easy at all for us this summer, but, we’ve always believed we can turn the tables.”
Chelsea is now occupying the second position in the standings in the Champions’ League Group G and they are well and truly in race for making it to the pre quarter final round of the competition.
They have to play against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Porto now on 24th of November and 9th of December respectively and they would like to make sure they put on good shows in those two games too and ensure a smooth qualification for themselves.
However, as far as the Premier League is concerned, Chelsea’s position is still pretty weak. They are at no. 15 with as many as 6 results against them in a total of 11 games.
