Willian: In action for Chelsea against Arsenal

Willian: In action for Chelsea against Arsenal

The Brazilian arrived at Stamford Bridge from Anzhi Makhachkala in August for £30m and appeared to struggle in the early stage of his Chelsea career.

But Willian has improved greatly in recent weeks with impressive performances in the wins over Liverpool and Southampton, where he came off the bench to help the Blues to a 3-0 victory.

Willian's form has been so good that two-time player of the season Juan Mata has become a bit-part player this term, and Cech is confident there is more to come from the South American.

Cech said: "Yes. You always give players a few months to settle because the Premier League is different to anywhere else.

"Questions were raised because he came from Anzhi Makhachkala where he was unlucky with injuries and he didn't play much.

"But from day one he has worked really hard. He was waiting for his chance and since the first start you can see he is taking his opportunity.

"He has been absolutely brilliant. He keeps working for the team, making the difference, scoring goals, defending. I thought I'd never see anyone running more than Ramires, but he's really there.

"It's fantastic to see he's enjoying his football, enjoying his life in the club. This is important. It's very pleasing to see his progress."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
