See what Willian just said about yesterday's victory against Watford

Willian has assessed Chelsea's last night victory as a deserved victory which owes much to the fighting spirit of the team.


It was an important victory for the Blues as they bounced back from the disappointment of Saturday’s defeat to Leicester, and from very early on, when Willian and Pedro linked up to fashion an opportunity, Maurizio Sarri’s side looked determined to take the points.
In the end, it was two goals from Eden Hazard, coming either side of Roberto Pereyra’s equaliser, which ensured the Blues returning to winning ways.
‘It was very difficult,’ said Willian, who started in a front three alongside Hazard and Pedro for the fourth consecutive Premier League match.
‘In the Premier League there are no easy games, every match is tough to play, but we got the three points and we played very well. We had a lot of possession and we created a lot of chances but the Premier League is like this, until the end you have to fight, and now we have to continue.’
The Brazilian was unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet himself, striking the outside of the post at 0-0, before going close on another couple of occasions late in the game.
Willian was yet understandably delighted for his team-mate to reach such a significant milestone.

‘I think I was unlucky in the first half when I went one against one with the keeper and hit the post,’ he said. ‘We had control of the game, we scored to make it 1-0 but then we conceded a goal. We went out for the second half with the same mentality, scored a goal and tried to create some chances. We were unlucky again, I hit the post twice, but like I said we have to continue in the same way now, we cannot go up and down anymore.’
In breaking the deadlock just before the half-time, Hazard became the 10th player in Chelsea history to score 100 goals for the club, adding strike number 101 from the penalty spot in the second half.
‘I’m happy for him,’ he said. ‘I’m happy because he helped us to win and happy he has scored 101 goals for Chelsea, so I hope there’s more to come from him. Now we have to think about Crystal Palace.’
Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace on Sunday the 30th for week 20 of the Premier League's season - though seeking to gather some points after previous mishaps, it won't be an easy contest between the two London sides.
