Willian has impressed this season with two goals, one assist and some eye-catching performances under Frank Lampard.

The Brazilian claims he is playing some of the best football of his career at Chelsea and has put his recent form down to being given a licence to roam by Frank Lampard.

Willian told Chelsea’s official website: “A part of the performances I have had in the past couple of games I have to dedicate to him. He always says to me ‘I want you to be happy’. That’s why I have been playing like I have been.

“I think our style of play has helped me, but not only that. The freedom he gives to us is important as well.

“I don’t have to stay on the right side. I can move around, I can move between the lines, I can move to the left side as well.

“I feel good playing in this way and that’s why I have been playing better and better. I hope to continue like this.”
