Willian showed his quality during Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Everton on Sunday and Chelsea legend Pat Nevin admits the Brazilian was on a different planet against Everton.
“I thought Willian was on a different planet on Sunday,” Nevin wrote on Chelsea’s official website.
“The tricks and flicks were not just for show, the outrageous moments of skill had an end product as well.
“The ease with which he was passing defenders was the equal of Eden at his best; in fact we really didn’t seem to miss our Belgian star with the quality that Pedro and Willian were providing.
“That is not to say we are not desperate to get Eden back as soon as possible, we clearly are, but it is good to know that the team can still look quite that special even when he isn’t available for a short while.”
