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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
