Willian (foot) is starting Wednesday against Watford.

Willian suffered his foot injury Sunday against MK Dons in the FA Cup, but it was never considered serious and he'll keep his spot in the starting XI.

Willian: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

February 2, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian is questionable for Wednesday's match against Watford due to a foot injury he suffered in Sunday's FA Cup match against MK Dons, manager Guus Hiddink said Tuesday.

Willian has been a huge fantasy contributor for Chelsea this season and his absence would certainly be a hit. If he's unable to play, Eden Hazard, Pedro and Oscar could start in the attacking midfield behind Diego Costa.

Willian scored a goal on one shot in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

During the first half of the season, nearly the entire Chelsea squad looked as if they were sleepwalking for lengthy stretches save the Brazilian, whose creativity on free kicks and work rate have earned the Blues many a point. With that, it's only fitting that Willian scored on a day that looked as if it could kickstart the rest of their season. The goal was his eighth in 27 matches across all competitions, and he has a goal and three assists in his past four.

Willian tallied an assist, three shots off target, 12 crosses and four key passes in the 2-2 draw to Watford on Boxing Day.

Another stellar performance from the attacking midfielder, he was all over the field. The highlight of his night was the brilliant and surgically precise pass behind the Hornetsí defense to find the run of Diego Costa for the equalizing goal. Heíll have an opportunity to wreak havoc on the weak Unitedís left flank on Monday versus the Red Devils.

Willian tallied an assist, three shots (two on target), four crosses, four key passes and three dribbles in the 3-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday.

The Brazilian is having quite the season for the Blues. With seven goals and two assists across all competitions heís already on the best scoring campaign of his career. Chelsea started a new era in a very offensive fashion and this will only help the attacking midfielder to sustain his form. Next test for the Blues is home fixture against Watford on Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian was very active on Saturday, getting off three crosses, four key passes, four completed dribbles and an assist in a 2-0 win over Aston Villa.

Willian seemed to take over the Eden Hazard role for Saturday's game and did it very effectively. Not only did he setup the whole offense, he did a nice job of getting back on defense and not leaving the pitch open. That is what manager Jose Mourinho criticized of Eden Hazard earlier in the week and Willian clearly wanted to send a message. It seems unlikely he'll keep this role, but the performance is a good sign going forward.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian scored off a free kick in the first half of Saturday's match against Southampton, but he had to be replaced in the 64th minute because of an illness.

Willian was reportedly throwing up at halftime, and while he was still able to play for nearly 20 more minutes, he eventually couldn't go any further, coming off for Pedro. He has been tremendous on free kicks this season and is likely to continue taking them when the club comes together after the international break.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Willian scored in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Newcastle.

Willian struck an 86th minute free kick that went straight into the back of the net. The Brazilian is one of manager Jose Mourinho's trusted lieutenants and contributes as much on the defensive side of things as he does going forwards. For this reason he is not as valuable as the likes of Pedro and Eden Hazard from a fantasy point of view.
