Willian is prepared to hand Chelsea team-mate David Luiz 10 per cent of the credit for one of his goals scored this season.
The goal the Brazilian is referring to is his stunning free-kick scored in the FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham.
Willian struck the first goal in the 4-2 win at Wembley, curling a free-kick past the wall and beyond a stunned Hugo Lloris.
Recalling the strike, Willian explained that his compatriot Luiz suggested he consider aiming towards the same side the Tottenham goalkeeper was standing. He did and it paid off spectacularly.
‘Because of the position of the wall there were so many players in front of the goalkeeper,’ Willian told Chelsea’s matchday programme.
‘I didn’t think he could see the ball. So that’s when I thought to hit it across this side would be better.
‘David Luiz also told me to have a look down that side, so I think a few per cent of the credit should go to him as well – 10 per cent of this goal goes to him.’

Willian was superb in that semi-final, also scoring a penalty. He told how special is had been to help send Chelsea through to the final where they will play Arsenal later this month.
‘To score at Wembley, against Tottenham, in front of 80,000 people – a full stadium – it’s hard to explain. I felt happy with this goal, happy to help the team to go to the final. Yeah, it was good! Good for the team and good for me as well.’
