Chelsea fans impressed with Willian performance against Wolves

Willian returned to the Chelsea team for the away win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday – and some of the club’s supporters praised him for his performance.

Frank Lampard’s team stunned Wolves at Molineux with a 5-2 victory in the Premier League fixture, which was an emphatic way to come back after the international break.

The Blues had three academy graduates contribute all five goals and there is certainly a buzz back around Stamford Bridge.

Centre-back Fiakyo Tomori scored a staggering long-range effort that curled into the top corner and already looks an early contender for goal of the season.

The defensive problems did resurface late on by conceding late goals, but Mason Mount added a fifth in stoppage time to put gloss on the scoreline.

Some Chelsea fans on social media were quick to point out an impressive display from Willian on his return to the XI.

Willian came in for his first start of the campaign due to previous injury problems and excelled on the right-wing, as the Blues switched to a 3-4-3 formation that was extremely effective.

The 31-year-old demonstrated he’s got the defensive side to his game by tracking back, while going forward he was quick and caused a threat.

He is certainly not one of the crowd favourites at the club and receives his fair share of criticism, but he played his role in a great team performance on the road.

The Brazilian is one of the senior players in the group and he proved he can play an important role under Lampard this season.
