Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has calmed concerns that Willian suffered an injury in the FA Cup victory at Leicester City.
The Brazilian was substituted early on in extra-time during the 2-1 win at the King Power Stadium on Sunday and there were fears the winger had picked up an injury. However, Conte has played down injury speculation and insisted that the decision to withdraw the winger was simply precautionary. "Willian was very tired, very tired," said the Blues boss. "He is in a fantastic physical condition and I'm very pleased with his commitment and his contribution. We decided to take this decision because he was very, very tired." Willian, who has scored five goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions, will have two weeks to rest before Chelsea clash with Tottenham on February 1. Mar 19 - 2:51 PM
