Chelsea FC are currently a struggling side, but they seemed to have improved their display ever since the departure of former manager Jose Mourinho. This seems to have increased the confidence in the team as Willian believes they can still finish in the top four in the league.
The diminutive attacking midfielder has been one of the few shining lights for the Blues this season, and played a big part in Chelsea FCa s 2-2 draw against Watford, taking the corner that led to Diego Costaa s first goal of the match, and also setting up the Spain international for his brace in the second half.
The good attacking display by Chelsea FC in the last couple of games seems to have led the Brazilian to believe that they can still finish in the top four this season.
a This situation is difficult for us but I think we can go and win game [against Manchester United] by game and finish the league in the top four,a Willian said in the Daily Mirror.
a Against Watford we showed our quality and have to now keep going the same way. We have a big game against Manchester United and have to go there to try to win the game,a he further said.
Willian feels sorry for a unluckya Oscar
The 27-year-old also nearly set up a prospective winning goal for Chelsea FC in their last match against Watford, as he was brought down in the box by goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.
This earned Chelsea FC a penalty, but his compatriot Oscar slipped while taking the shot, sending the ball into the stands. Willian feels that his compatriot was rather unfortunate with the shot.
a I am so sorry about Oscar. He was unlucky in that moment when he went to shoot,a he said. a We played well in the second half. Of course we were in a difficult moment in that half when Watford scored a second goal but we kept going and then we scored.a
