Willian failed to take a single shot and picked up a yellow card during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.

After being rested for Chelsea's Champions League match against Sporting CP on Wednesday, Willian put up a statistical dud for fantasy owners, finishing with just one key pass, while completing just 76.9 percent overall. He'll look to bounce back Dec. 22 against Stoke City.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Tuesday that Willian will be rested for Wednesday's Champions League match against Sporting CP.

Willian has been a consistent player in Mourinho's starting XI this season, but he'll get a rest because Chelsea have already clinched the top spot in the group. Eden Hazard and John Terry are also being given a break, but all are expected to be back in the lineup Saturday against Hull City.

Willian helped himself to a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-0 win against Schalke in the Champions League.

Willian finished off a classy move in the 29th minute that made in 2-0 before he turned provider as he squared it to Didier Drogba in the 76th minute for 4-0.

Willian had a goal and an assist during Chelsea's 3-0 Premier League win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Willian started the season of slowly, losing playing time to Andre Schurrle, but he has started two straight Premier League matches and may be moving ahead of Schurrle for playing time. Schurrle is a little more versatile in terms of positioning, but Willian has the upper hand right now.

Willian got his first start of the Premier League season Saturday against Everton, but he failed to register a single shot before being subbed off for John Obi Mikel in the 75th minute.

Willian came off the bench in both of Chelsea's matches heading into Saturday, but he has yet to take a shot in three matches. There is plenty of upside for a player in the Chelsea starting XI, but Andre Schurrle has done more in his time on the pitch than Willian, which means the latter could be more of a bench player this season.

Willian came on for Oscar in the 70th minute and took two shots, both of which were on goal, though neither found the back of the net during Chelsea's 2-0 win over Leicester on Saturday.

Willian has come off the bench in both of Chelsea's Premier League matches so far this season, with Oscar and Andre Schurrle getting starts ahead of him. With the way the Blues have played so far (two games, six points), it's tough to see why manager Jose Mourinho would make a change to his starting XI.

Willian came on for Andre Schurrle in the 78th minute of Chelsea's 3-1 win over Burnley on Monday.

Manager Jose Mourinho indicated that he was going to rest Willian for the match after relatively light training following the World Cup, but he said the same thing about Schurrle, who started the match and scored in the 21st minute. It appears that Willian and Schurrle will be competing for playing time this season, and Schurrle made the early claim for the starting job.

Willian is available off the bench for Chelsea's Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday.

Manager Jose Mourinho indicated that he was going to hold Willian out after he recently returned to training following the World Cup, but he's available to play, along with other World Cup participants Andre Schurrle, Oscar, Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.
