Chelsea reluctant to part with Willian amid Barcelona links

Chelsea predicted XI GFX

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Spanish champions Barcelona have been linked with a move for Chelsea winger Willian in the now January window.

In the evening kick off, Chelsea were pegged back after Pedro's opener by Ciaran Clark's powerful header, before Willian's strike earned the Blues all three points. "I need an option for Jorginho".

Pedro timed his run behind Clark perfectly and held off the centre-back's weak attempt to recover as he lofted a delicate chip over Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka for his seventh goal of the season.

I have no idea [how soon a replacement will arrive].The club is anxious, I don't know.

The former Napoli manager responded similarly to talk Willian potential exit in an interview with Sky Sports, claiming: "You know very well that Willian is a very important player".

Willian's third Premier League goal of the season came at the end of a week that saw fresh speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, though sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are reluctant to sell him in January amid concerns that it could damage Sarri's ability to deliver a top-four finish.

She said that he forced her to call him "daddy" and would lock her in a van during their 11 month relationship. Kelly can not take place in the wake of new sexual misconduct allegations against the R&B star.

"You know very well that Willian is a very important player for us, as I said yesterday in the news conference".

"In my opinion Willian has to stay with us". "He's a fundamental player - he has to stay with us".

"If we work and play with the same passion, intensity and work rate, we will definitely have chances to get points against a lot of teams".

"After the goal something happened, we stopped playing". With Eden [Hazard] as a striker, we need wingers.

"I think our wingers attacked the space better than in the last five or six matches but we need to attack the box better". I think that we need to improve our mentality in total. So we need Pedro. We need Hudson-Odoi. We need Willian of course. I am very happy.

But it took only nine minutes for the Blues to go in front as Newcastle's five-man defence was carved open easily.
