Chelsea have been phenomenal this season. Having suffered a calamitous campaign last term, the Blues have been on fire this season, and Chelsea winger Willian, has put it down to the work the team has put in training, the tactics and work of Antonio Conte and also the squad depth.

When asked what has made Chelsea great, Willian told Brazilian outlet Globoesporte: “I think it’s the work we’ve been doing on a daily basis, our training.

“We all know how difficult it was to start the championship, then we fit in, we got a very good sequence of wins.

“And Conte has been doing a great job too.

“Also note that today the Chelsea team are not only 11 starters but 14, 15 players who fight for the position and when he moves the team, it continues to give results. So I think that’s important.”
