Alisson, Fabinho, and Roberto Firmino are champions for Liverpool, Gabriel Jesus is the new holder of the Manchester City attack and Richarlison continues in favor of the fans of Everton. But no Brazilian shines more in the post-pandemic Premier League than Willian.
On the return of English football, the 31-year-old striker took over the role of Chelsea and leads Frank Lampard’s team towards a place in the next edition of the Champions League. In five matches, one for the FA Cup, Willian has four goals and has the chance to further improve the score this Tuesday, when the Blues visit Crystal Palace.
With the four post-pandemic goals, Willian has reached an important personal milestone. Now there are 101 goals since arriving in European football. The striker scored 63 for Chelsea, 37 for Shakhtar Donetsk, and one with the shirt of Russia’s Anzhi Makhachkala. He also contributed 129 assists in 572 games. It is still uncertain to say whether the good phase of the Brazilian will change the board and offer a new contract to shirt 10. But, if he maintains the level of the last few weeks, Willian should have no trouble finding the next club of his career.
