It’s no secret that Chelsea have gotten off to a poor start this season. After dropping points to lowly Newcastle a week ago and following that up with a midweek loss to Porto in the Champions League, tensions were high going into their weekend match with Southampton at Stamford Bridge.
An early goal would do a lot to take some of the pressure off of the Blues and their fans, who desperately need a win to get themselves back into the title race.
Luckily for Chelsea they have Willian, and after winning an early free kick, Willian stepped in to ease everyones fears.
