Maurizio Sarri confirms 49-goal winger will be at Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri confirms 49-goal winger will be at Chelsea

According to the Mirror, Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang will look to test the Blues' resolve to keep Willian at the club, and could rival the interest of Barcelona, who had a £50m bid turned down earlier in the week.

"We made a couple of big mistakes with the first goal and the first goal after we scored but overall we were fine in a lot of parts of the game". [Hudson-Odoi] is becoming for us a really important player. We stopped to play and then we had problems.

"With Eden playing as a striker we need wingers".

Goals from Pedro and Willian earned Chelsea a hard-fought 2-1 win over Newcastle which opened up a six-point gap to fifth-place Arsenal in the battle for a Champions League place.

A minute after that second Pedro miss, Willian edged the Blues back in front with a delightful curler into the far corner after cutting inside on his right foot.




Newcastle find themselves in the relegation zone as a result of wins for Southampton and Burnley and another winter of discontent is brewing for the Magpies. "We need Odoi. We need Willian, of course". "For us, in this moment, he is a fundamental player".

"Maybe he has 12 years of the contract, I don't know. You are trying to let me speak about something I don't know".

Chelsea took the lead after nine minutes, through Pedro, but Newcastle responded and deservedly equalised five minutes before half-time through Ciaran Clark before Willian's second-half victor.

After failing to score in their last two home league matches - a 1-0 defeat to Leicester City and 0-0 draw with Southampton either side of Christmas - it took the Blues just nine minutes to edge in front here.

"In my opinion, Willian has to stay with us". But it was really very important to gain points today. We need to improve in the mental reaction because after the first goal something happened. After the goal, I think we thought now it's easy, but it wasn't. We scored after nine minutes, so we did not have to face difficulty.
