Willian

Started by Jason,

He's technically very good and a hardworker for the team but his end product and contribution to our attack is unacceptable. He hasn't shown any signs whatsoever of improvement in this regard.

His one skill is to stop the ball, do a fancy step-over then push the ball forward and run to it, trying to beat his marker for pace. That's not good enough for a starting XI player. We need an upgrade in the summer to both he and Andre.

Dissappointing performance. Lacks killer instinct, he will rarely if ever carry the team. We are missing a natural goalscorer in our AM. The fact that our midfield never has much time on the ball against good teams doesn't help either.

He would have been much better playing in the centre today and if Ramires was fit I'm sure that's where he would have played. But no Ramires meant Willian was needed on the right to help defend.

In the big games Willian > Oscar in the middle.

The pass to Hazard that Oscar got wrong is easy stuff for Willian.

Willian struggles to play through balls but guiding the ball into a teammates pass is easy stuff for him, just a shame it was Oscar and not Willian on the ball in that moment today. I still can't quite believe how badly Oscar messed up that pass.

Does the minimum which is defend and help and help in attack. With he regular below par perfomances.I'll judge him and say he isn't Chelsea quality. His end product is so bad that I rate Marcello a better offensive player than he is even Dani Alves. Really we can't expect Hazard to perform every game, We need other players to also put in a shift which Willian and Oscar aren't doing on a regular basis!

Shouldn't be a starter in a year or so.

Great defensive right winger, really does help out. Is trying to improve, he took more shots today with one that was close, but this type of game should be made for him.

One of the biggest pitches in the league with a sub par defence. Literally give him the perfect platform.

He needs a lot of work on his attacking skills if he wants to remain in this team. Defensively solid but needs to improve more if he wants to remain a starter.

Willian > Oscar

Let him play CAM and see how he performs; he's a better CAM than he is RW in my opinion.

Willian would have given Blind and Fellaini way more problems than Oscar did yesterday.

pretty much spot on mate, Willian has a good touch (Forget Smalling, Hazard lost the ball for a throw in 3 times, not mentioned! not a dig btw just a point) and especially when he's being closed down he has unrivaled pace/touch/burst over 2-3 yards, what I mean is he frequently uses that to burst past the first person or someone going for a 50/50 which I think, considering I thought Blind was their weak spot yesterday not Felliani, could of been more exposed if he was playing CAM.

Lets not push that too far in terms of if he doesn't improve he will be dropped, not at all, the interview he done where he said Jose told him to shoot 3 times etc. is just testament to the fact he knows what he has to do, same as Hazard last season.

Each season Hazard has improved, Willian has improved since he come here, this season my expectations are not high if I'm honest, where we are at the moment is just a massive positive I was more looking to next season to absolutely dominate.

If he wants Willian to shoot more he needs to put him in a position to do so. Willian is restricted by playing on the right, he doesn't have the option of cutting inside on his stronger foot like most wingers do nowadays.

He's definitely better centrally.

He is not a proper wide player so he's very limited - especially on the right. He can only do the quick step over and low cross consistently.

Centrally or on the left, he can at least do the step over and create space for himself to shoot.

Oscar will have the same problems if he was also used on the wings.

That's when you have to consider who does the other things better and I think Willian does (better in possession, counter-attacking threat, doesn't screw up 3-yard passes). And for all of Oscar's hard-work, Willian works just as hard if not more.

Nice that he can be relied upon while coming on as a sub, things are really starting to click. Schürrle and Salah have a serious mountain too climb to claim the RW spot.

I really like everything about Willian's game, except his finishing. Surely Chelsea can bring in Athletico Madrid's forwards coach(es). This way Willian and Schurle can be become complete players.

Great CAM? Only problem is his finishing? Willian > Oscar? ( :fainthv9: )

Willian is neither a great CAM/winger and his only problem is certainly not his finishing. I still haven't noticed any improvements in his play this season. Just the same ol' Willian thus far. And that's good enough to start ahead of Schurrle and Salah. That says more about those two players than Willian.
