He said, "As you have seen today, Jorginho was in trouble and on the bench there wasn't a player for that position, so I need a player for that position, I need another option for Jorginho".

The 30-year-old showed his value to Chelsea by scoring his side's victor against Newcastle to give Blues a six-point cushion over fifth-placed Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification.

Willian's first Premier League goal since October gave Chelsea a vital three points in the top-four race after Ciaran Clark's header cancelled out an early opener from Pedro Rodriguez in a lively first half, but frustration gripped Stamford Bridge as the home side laboured for long spells.

"The club knows very well my opinion".

The winger has proved to be a real favourite of new boss Mauricio Sarri's, having become a peripheral figure in the side last season, after publicly falling out with then-manager Antonio Conte. We need [Hudson-Odoi]. We need Willian of course.
