Willian tallied an assist off a corner kick in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Southampton.

With time winding down in the match, Willian provided an excellent ball into the box that Branislav Ivanovic calmly headed home to give Chelsea the victory. While Chelsea's form has improved of late, Willian has been the consistent rock in the midfield all season. This was his eighth assist in the Premier League this season and he has 10 goals in 38 matches across all comps.

Willian scored a goal on two shots (two on target) and tallied an assist in Saturday's 5-1 victory over Newcastle.

While much of the Chelsea squad has struggled this season, Willian has been one of the only consistent performers. The goal was his fourth in Premier League play, to go along with his five Champions League goals, while he also added his seventh Premier League assist of the season. Between his versatility and quality on the ball, he stands to benefit from the collective improvement of the Chelsea side.

Willian (foot) is starting Wednesday against Watford.

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.
