With the opening Premier League game against Manchester United just 37 days away you’d think Chelsea fans would want to avoid any major injuries to one of their attacking players. However, exactly the opposite is true after what happened to Willian.
The Brazilian international suffered a muscle injury in Brazil’s 2-0 victory over rivals Argentina in the semi-finals of the Copa America. And Chelsea fans offered a brutal response after Sky Sports Football’s official Twitter account tweeted out how big next season would be for him now that Eden Hazard left the club.
It should be a huge season for Willian at Chelsea with Eden Hazard now departed

Willian didn’t enjoy the best of seasons last year, scoring only three goals and assisting seven in the Premier League. Many Chelsea fans have been calling for him to be sold in this summer’s transfer window despite a transfer ban.
Here is a selection of tweets from Chelsea fans who showed no remorse for Willian after his injury troubles while away on international duty with Brazil at the Copa America:
willian will be exposed, he is OVERRATED…
