Chelsea’s best dribbler in the 3-0 thrashing of Watford at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night was Willian.

The Brazilian winger completed the joint-highest number of dribbles alongside Watford player Ismaila Sarr. Both players completed two dribbles.

Christian Pulisic, who won the penalty for Willian’s goal, completed one dribble alongside Ross Barkley, Mason Mount and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Willian also had five shots on goal, only Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud had more shots on goal than the Brazilian.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard explained reason for changes to his starting XI against Watford.

Explaining reason for the changes, Lampard said: “It was a mixture.

“A lot of teams are making changes for fitness, a game every three days is tough anyway.

“But we made some big mistakes on the day. I’m certainly not one to pick out individuals, maybe that’s one for behind closed doors, to look at things but collectively we have to accept what happened, collectively we have to put it right, no matter the personnel.”
