Willian eager to stay at Chelsea despite exit rumours

Willian eager to stay at Chelsea despite exit rumours

Maurizio Sarri reiterated that Chelsea must find a replacement for Cesc Fabregas in the January transfer window after admitting that Jorginho was "in trouble" during Saturday's 2-1 win over Newcastle.

Willian has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Chelsea but he was adamant he wanted to stay at the west London club.

The Clarets were behind to Andre Schurrle's superb second-minute strike, but went ahead through two own-goals in the space of three minutes, with Joe Bryan and Denis Odoi finding their own net.

Willian scored the winning goal in Chelsea's Premier League 2-1 victory over Newcastle in the Premier League.

"You know very well that Willian is a very important player for us, as I said yesterday in the news conference".

Chelsea cruised through the opening half an hour of the match, with Pedro coming close to a second goal from his 25-yard drive, which Dubravka was equal to, and Luiz's header took a small touch on its way marginally wide of the target.

Reports on Thursday claimed Chelsea had rejected an offer worth £50 million from Barcelona that would see Willian's fellow Brazil winger Malcom move to Stamford Bridge.

Fabregas completed his permanent move to Monaco on Friday and Sarri's need was emphasised after he watched Jorginho struggle to dictate play against Newcastle. To be fair we can not complain about what the players were doing on the pitch.

"With Eden playing as a striker we need wingers".

"After the goal, I think we thought "now it's easy", but it wasn't", he said. So we need Pedro.

"We need to improve in the mental reaction".

Chelsea are now assessing the position of Callum Hudson-Odoi amid the regular attempts from Bayern Munich to prise him away and the teenage graduate appears the likelier to leave the club this month. "In the last five matches for us it really was very hard to score", he said. We scored after nine minutes, so we did not have to face difficulty. "For now, it's enough".
