Lampard is in love with Willian, by the way. Spoke glowingly of him pre-match and now post-match. Getting even more love than he did under Mourinho!
He has to keep him onside, if he doesn't want to be cropped out. [emoji57]

Give him a contract extension and after sell him in the summer.

I think there is no chance we sell him if we give him the extension. Firstly he will be very expensive and also I think the board would extent his contract with intention to count on him.

Giving him a contract extension would be wrong. So very wrong. 

 

Praise him when he deserves it, but don't let a couple of good performances play tricks on you. We see it every season from him. 2 months of good form. 7 of poor form. 

We can and must do better than him.

I hope Pulisic explodes and I think we will replace Pedro with another good winger so I have no issues Willian being fourth choice next season.

If not we should sell him in January, at least recoup some of the money for him.

One of Pedro/Willian will stay next season, IMO but just a case of who...

I would urge the club to replace both Willian + Pedro if I'm being completely honest. 

We need to have strength in depth. Not a player with little end product and an over the hill one.

These threads are really quiet when players are in form, aren't they... he's proving a lot of people (myself included...) wrong with his performances. He isn't anywhere close to being as sensational as some Chelsea fan are making him out to be, but he is, nonetheless, playing some great football and seems to be enjoying the level of leadership entrusted in him by Lampard. 

I think it's more a case of his qualities being more complementary to the players around him.

Last two years we only had one reliable scorer which was Hazard and even he wasn't troubling Auba, Aguero, Salah, Kane as far as the golden boot was concerned which meant Willians lack of end product was highlighted more as we could have really done with better numbers from him.

This year it's a completely different ball game. Tammy, Mount and Odoi are getting the goals and assists he lacks while he brings the game management qualities that those boys are lacking right now, so in turn that means we can focus on appreciating Willians strengths as opposed to bemoaning his end product. Its a really mutually beneficial relationship between him and the academy lads.

With the numbers the three above are producing it doesn't matter too much if Willian doesn't score again this season, in that sense it's back to the days of Costa/Hazard/Oscar/better version Pedro where anything he offers in terms of goals are a bonus because we have enough of them elsewhere, thankfully.

Hmmm. so no appreciation? Nothing? Oh well. 

He got all the appreciation after Lille game deservedly. Against Newcastle we had at least 6 players with better performances like Pulisic or Kovacic... I didn't see your appreciation in Kova thread?

Go read the match thread. And my post after the game. 

Also, I am not someone who has been at KOVA's throat every time he takes the field. The only time I was at his throat was when he was not a Chelsea player. So stop bringing that one thing up and quoting it out of context.

And pulisic was better than willian? 6 players were better than willian? LOLOLOLOL. Sure. The only players who were better than willian on saturday were Jorginho, CHO and probably Kova.

Recalled to Brazil NT for next month's matches.

I expect his form to drop afterwards. I suspected that his absence in the last two breaks meant he had a slight sharpness-advantage over his younger competitors. Let's hope he gets a confidence boost that makes up for that. Cool pic tho
