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, 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.
