Chelsea midfielder Willian admits he needs to score more goals this season if he is earn a starting place in Jose Mourinho’s star-studded line-up.
Willian - “I think I have to score more goals, to play better and just be better. last season I did good, not bad, but I want more.”
Willian, who arrived at Chelsea last summer from Shahktar Donetsk, was a regular for Mourinho last season, but he faces increased competition for places this season following the arrival of Cesc Fabregas.
I almost forgot about Marko Marin, the kid who was labelled the German Messi the season before Chelsea brought him to Stamford Bridge. Considering the fact that he was not involved in the World Cup, Marin should have been afforded the opportunity to impress in pre-season. However, his absence from the tour indicates that there is no future for him at Stamford Bridge. He has since joined Fiorentina on a season long loan but he will likely, in my opinion, be shipped off for good come next summer.
‘During pre-season you are always waiting for that first game and obviously we have started with two wins so it’s good. Now we just go step by step. Two games are gone and now we have a big game on Saturday against Everton. We are just focused on that at the moment.’
Gary Cahill is delighted with our start to the season, with the Blues having taken maximum points from matches against Burnley and Leicester City, two newly promoted teams.
‘They were two tough games against teams that have just come up. We slipped up last season in games which people expected us to take points from but the Premier League isn’t as easy as that, you have to fight every time you take to the field. We’ve added to our squad, we know where we slipped up last year, so the first two games have been very important for us. Other teams have also strengthened so it’s going to be very tough. We know the expectation level at the club; we always expect to be in and around there but the Premier League is very difficult.’ – Cahill
