Willian enjoyed a relaxed day with the family ahead of Chelsea’s trip to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues midfielder opened his Premier League account for the 2014/15 season after his cross was deflected past Swansea City goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

However, Chelsea were unable to protect their 2-1 lead following Thibaut Courtois’s sending off, which resulted in Bafetimbi Gomis converting from the penalty spot.

The defending Premier League champions have endured a week full of controversy off the pitch, but Willian didn’t look to be affected by the drama as he chilled with his wife and kids.

Willian wrote on the photo-sharing: “Family god gave me!”

Willian played a key part in Chelsea’s Premier League title-winning side last season.

The 27-year-old South American scored four goals in 49 games in all competitions for the west London side last season.
