Chelsea winger Willian got his first start under new boss Frank Lampard as Chelsea defeated Wolves 5-2 at the Molineux Stadium.

Willian’s current deal expires at the end of the season and he’s yet to sign a contract extension with the Blues, with Juventus keen on signing him up as a free agent next summer.

The Brazilian has admitted that he’s willing to remain at Stamford Bridge and loves the club but he’s unsure of his future and chooses to focus on the moment.

“From my side, I want to stay here,” Willian said. “I know I only have one year left but I feel good playing for Chelsea.

“I like playing for Chelsea. I have the affection with everybody, the fans, the people that work at the club.

“Maybe this will be at the end of the season. Now is not the time to think about it. I just want to play my football and to help the team this season.”

Willian had a good game against Wolves and impressed in his first start of the season as he used his pace and skill to worry the Wolves side.

Willian had been criticised for his performance before now, but he admitted before the Wolves game that he needed some time in training having been away due to injury and he’s 100 percent fit now and raring to go should he be called upon.

“I had an injury when I was at Copa America and I needed some time in training to recover, but now I am 100 per cent,” Willian told Sky Sports.

“I have to continue to train hard and when I have time to play I have to play well.”
