With Antonio Conte opting to rest Eden Hazard, Willian starred in Chelsea’s 5-0 thrashing of Stoke on Saturday, scoring one goal and providing two assists.

Matthew Upson hailed Willian as one of Chelsea’s best performers against Stoke and insists Willian deserves to be in the starting xi every week.

“I think Willian’s been one of Chelsea’s best today,” Upson told BBC Sport.

“But seeing Eden Hazard drop to the bench today – to be able to bring in Willian and Pedro is pretty good.

“Willian deserves to be in the starting XI every week, but it’s difficult for Antonio Conte with all the options he has in attack.”
