Willian: Netted his first goal for Chelsea in victory over Norwich

The Brazilian playmaker was among those acquired by Jose Mourinho over the summer, with big money paid to secure his services from Anzhi Makhachkala and keep rival interest at bay.

Willian has had to be patient in his pursuit of regular football at Stamford Bridge, with his first Premier League outing coming at Norwich City on Sunday.

He marked the occasion with his first goal for the Blues - wrapping up a 3-1 win - and the 25-year-old says there is plenty more to come from him now that he is up and running.

Willian told Globo Esporte: "I am very happy to have made my Premier League debut this way.

"I did well off the bench, doing what Mourinho asked me to do. I managed to start the move that led to the second goal and then I scored the third goal.

"It was very exciting and I am not only happy for the goal, but also for the win - which was important for our team.

"I am slowly recovering my best form, gaining match fitness.

"I will try to do my best whenever I have the opportunity to play. I intend to grow with each match."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
