Former Chelsea Brazilian star Willian, has shown that he’s still keeping an eye on the Chelsea team.

The former Chelsea ace left Chelsea for Arsenal at the end of the 2020-21 season, and was once named the best player in the Chelsea squad, as he won the Chelsea Player of the Year in 2016.

The Brazilian still has some of his old mates in the Chelsea team, and he hailed the trio of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount and Reece James as his three favourites in the current Chelsea setup.

Speaking on Rio Ferdinand’s YouTube channel, William was asked about the players currently at Chelsea he likes to watch, and he said: “[Callum] Hudson-Odoi, Mason Mount, Reece James.”

When pressed to name his favourite, Willian mentioned Reece James and backed him to be one of the best right-backs in the world: “Difficult. I think Reece James – I like him.

“He’s a good player. I think he can be one of the best right-backs in the world in years.”
