Chelsea forward Willian takes to Instagram ahead of the visit of Bournemouth

Willian has issued a Chelsea rallying cry ahead of the visit of Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Jose Mourinho’s side are in 14th place and 14 points behind current pace-setters Manchester City and Leicester City after a disappointing start to the defence of their title.

The defending Premier League champions have already lost a staggering seven games in the Premier League this season, including three defeats at Stamford Bridge.

And Willian, who has been one of Mourinho’s more-consistent players this season, is eyeing three vital points against Eddie Howe’s Cherries side.

Willian posted the above snap and wrote on Instagram: “Come on Blues!! 🙏🏼⚽ #CFC #Chelsea #PremierLeague #W22 #Willian”

Chelsea are looking to make a return to winning ways on Saturday after a 1-1 stalemate with London rivals Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
