Cech impressed by form of Chelsea teammate Willian

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech has praised the form of teammate Willian, Sky Sports has reported, crediting the Brazil midfielder with working himself into better form and adapting to the Premier League through sheer endeavour.


Willian


Willian moved to Stamford Bridge in summer 2013, Chelsea paying £30m to Anzhi Makhachkala for his signature, but it took time before the playmaker was a regular feature under Jose Mourinho. However, he has since earned a place in Mourinho’s thoughts on a consistent basis and Cech has commended Willian for his effort.


You always give players a few months to settle because the Premier League is different to anywhere else,” Cech said, acknowledging the difficult start Willian had to his career in England. “Questions were raised because he came from Anzhi Makhachkala where he was unlucky with injuries and he didn't play much.


But from day one he has worked really hard,” the long-serving stopper continued. “He was waiting for his chance and since the first start you can see he is taking his opportunity.


He has been absolutely brilliant. He keeps working for the team, making the difference, scoring goals, defending. I thought I'd never see anyone running more than Ramires, but he's really there.


It's fantastic to see he's enjoying his football, enjoying his life in the club. This is important. It's very pleasing to see his progress,” Cech concluded.


Willian has helped Chelsea to third in the Premier League table, two points adrift of leaders Arsenal and a point behind second-place Manchester City. Chelsea’s next game comes in the FA Cup, away at Championship side Derby County.
