Willian impresess pundit in Chelsea win
10 November 2019
London- Chelsea went above Manchester City with a convincing 2-0 win against Crystal Palace with Tammy Abraham and Cristian Pulisic on target but according to former Liverpool man Danny Murphy was impressed with Willian.
With Chelsea looking to move second in the Premier League Willian changed the trajectory of the game with a through pass flick that let in Abraham one on one with the keeper and Murphy highlighted this in BBC Match of the day show.
Murphy said on BBC’s Match Of The Day that Willian “is a super player”.
“His intelligence is there for all to see and he led the team well,” the ex-Tottenham man added.
“The responsibility as captain improved his performance. He was the one most likely to try to break the Palace rearguard down; he was the most positive.
“He has been playing well well anyway but even more so today he took the responsibility Frank has asked him to take and helped the younger ones in a game that was a bit stale in the first half.
“Even when he wasn’t getting in the holes he was trying to get in the box and we don’t see him in the box often enough with the quality he has got.”
