Willian takes to social media to reflect on Chelsea's 2-0 win over Hull City

Willian was clearly feeling in a philosophical mood on Monday as he took to social media in the wake of Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Hull City at Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian midfielder was a second-half substitute as he came on for the final 19 minutes against the Tigers at Stamford Bridge at the weekend.

Willian has made 11 Premier League starts for the Blues so far this season and 18 appearances in total, scoring five goals and making one assist in the top flight for Antonio Conte’s men.

And the midfielder seemed to be in a reflective mood on Monday afternoon, as he posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Do not doubt what God has for you. The man can promise something, but for some reason he may not keep it.

“With God there are no failures. If He has promised, it will come. There are no unforeseen or contrary assumptions. The only truth is: God strictly follows what he promises to his people. #Ibelieve”

The Blues take on Liverpool and Arsenal in their next two Premier League games as they bid to firmly establish themselves as the favourites to win the title this season.
