Willian on Chelsea after Brighton: ‘I think we have to be more clinical’

Chelsea 2-Brighton 0

Chelsea would play host to Brighton on Saturday, as they went in search of their first home league win under Frank Lampard.

The Blues were also yet to keep a clean sheet under Lampard in any competitive match.

However, Chelsea would kill two birds with one stone vs Brighton, as they came away with a 2-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.

A Jorginho penalty and a 76th-minute strike from Willian would give Chelsea all three points vs Graham Potter’s side.

Willian on Brighton win

Despite picking up a win at Stamford Bridge, a clean sheet and a goal for himself, though, Willian has still called on Chelsea to be more clinical after the Brighton clash.

The Brazilian claims that the game vs Brighton could have ended 3-0 or 4-0:

“We have been working hard every day, every game and this time we finally got the result, got the three points at home and we have to carry on.

“We have to continue in the same way. The game could have been 3-0 or 4-0. In the first half we created a lot of chances and I think we have to be more clinical. We cannot miss chances like this and we have to now think about the next game.

“In the first half I tried a couple of finishes but I was blocked,’ he admitted, ‘and then finally in the second half I got one and I am happy with the result. The clean sheet means we get confidence now.

“We will have more confidence in the next games and we have to carry on the same way. ‘If we want to stay at the top of the table we have to win points and win games, so we go for it.

“We have to keep pushing, and working hard, and I think we can do that.” As quoted by Chelsea’s official website.

Chelsea’s poor finishing vs Brighton

Given the fact that Chelsea are said to have attempted 17 shots in the first-half vs Brighton and not scored, Willian may have a point about his side needing to be more clinical:

Chelsea’s next game sees them travel to Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday.
