Chelsea star Willian released an interview with the club official website ahead of the match against Watford today.
The Brazilian winger firstly reflected on the win against West Ham in the Premier League opener:
“It was a good team performance and we deserved to win the game.
“We played very well and from the beginning of the game we put them under pressure and tried to score goals so it was good for us.”
Then he spoke about today’s game:
“Pre-season was very hard, we did double sessions every day but I feel good now. It was only the first game so everybody will improve, that’s natural, but I feel fresh and I’m ready for Watford.
“We have to do what we did in the game on Monday which was defend very well as a team. I think they were a little bit lucky with their goal but we reacted well and scored the second.
“We have to improve both defensively and in attack with every game but we were pleased with our defensive performance against West Ham.”
Willian also spoke about what changed with the new manager Antonio Conte:
“Some things have changed on the pitch but we respect the manager and the system he wants us to play.
“Sometimes, in a game, you have to decide what to do in a quick moment. For example I might have to move inside to get the ball and dribble past an opponent, you have to make quick decisions.
“The coach has improved our confidence. In training and at half-time he talks to us a lot which is very helpful.”
