Willian says Chelsea are enjoying the pressure of being Premier League leaders.

The Blues are four points clear at the top of the table courtesy of their 2-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The pressure is good because we are top of the league

And Willian is urging Jose Mourinho’s side to continue their unbeaten streak ahead of the trip to Maribor in the Champions League on Wednesday.

“It was a difficult game,” Willian told Chelsea’s website.

“Of course I tried to do my best and the team tried to do our best. In the second half QPR scored and we had to react. Eden then made a great dribble and scored the penalty.

“It’s good for us because we take three points.

“The pressure is good because we are top of the league. We have to continue in that way, to get points game by game.”

Willian heaped praise on his Chelsea team-mate Oscar after the Brazil international scored a brilliant opener at Stamford Bridge.

“Oscar is a great player. He scored a fantastic goal and he played well,” Willian added.

“I’m happy because we play together here and we play together for the national team,” continued Willian. “He’s scoring goals and making assists so congratulations to Oscar.”
