Willian has a chance to win his first FA Cup trophy and the 28-year-old has vowed to play his best whether he starts the game or comes on from the bench.

The Brazilian is looking forward to playing in the Wembley Stadium and becoming an FA Cup champion.

“I think every player wants to be involved in these type of games at Wembley,” he tells the official Chelsea website. “I’ve been lucky enough to have those opportunities. We played against Tottenham in the League Cup final two years ago and won the trophy, and we beat them there again in the FA Cup semi-final.

“I want to experience that feeling again and whether I start the game or come off the bench against Arsenal I will do my best to help Chelsea win the match.”

Willian also admitted that he’s expecting a tough game against the Gunners.

He said: “They are going to come out strongly to try to win the game because they will want to prove something.

“Finals are always very tight, 50-50, it doesn’t matter who you are playing against. Arsenal are still Arsenal, a very big club with some great players. Arsenal is a huge name around the world, it’s going to be a tough game and we need to be ready.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
