Chelsea midfielder Willian claims the support from the fans against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge will make this Sunday a day to remember in Chelsea history.
“We are playing at home, we have the support of the fans behind us and we have a great chance to win the game. The fans are very important, we need them to come to the game and support the team. It gives us added motivation.
“Sometimes you have to forget about the supporters and get on with your job out on the pitch but, of course, Sunday is a day when they can be a very big help for us.”
Speaking about Chelsea’s Wednesday night win at Leicester, the Brazilian said: “I was pleased with the performance of myself and the whole team, it was a difficult game, everybody gave their best and we were very happy with the result.
“The first half was tough for us but in the second half we played much better and scored three goals, in the end I felt we deserved to win the game.”
Willian has been a key part of the Chelsea midfield this season, but he was quick to highlight the importance of the decisions of Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: “Sometimes when the way you are playing isn’t working you have to change it. The manager did that at half-time and it paid off. In the second half we had a lot more possession and played with confidence. Because of that we created more chances, which enabled us to score the three goals.”
