Willian has assured Chelsea fans he wants to stay at Stamford Bridge, even though he has not been a regular starter this season.
“I’m happy here and the fans can be calm,” said the Brazilian after starring in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Huddersfield last night.
“I’m always happy here at Chelsea. I really like this club a lot with my heart. Yeah, I’m very happy.”
Willian has been repeatedly linked with a move to title rivals United after growing frustration over his lack of game time under Antonio Conte.
The Brazil international has started only 12 games this season, but responded to his recall by heading home the second and laying on both Chelsea’s other goals for Tiemoue Bakayoko and Pedro.
“Of course I’m very happy,” he said. “When I play, I always try to do my best to help the team to score goals to make assists and I did that with my team-mates.”
Chelsea bounced back from Saturday’s defeat at West Ham by finally producing a display worthy of champions against Huddersfield.
