Willian scored a spectacular goal just five minutes before the end to give Chelsea an equalizer against Liverpool at Anfield, here on Saturday.
Mohamed Salah had helped Liverpool take the lead (1-0) in the 65th minute but Willian’s lofted chip sailed over Simon Mignolet’s head into the Liverpool goal that helped Chelsea share point.
“It was a shot, for sure!” Willian said, adding, “It was beautiful. I was a little bit lucky because the ball went right in the corner, but I am happy to come on and try and make the difference with my teammates, and then score a beautiful goal.”
“We created some chances in the first half. They created some chances as well. It was a good game. Of course we came to try to win, but we know how difficult it is to play against Liverpool here. Big team, great players! I think one point is good. Now we have to carry on like this,” said Willian after the match.
According to www.chelseafc.com, Antonio Conte’s belief that every player in his squad has a crucial part to play has come out to be true as Willian had scored twice against Qarabag in midweek, and on Saturday, he again came up with the equaliser.
