I think this kind of thing often happens, new player comes in has a blinder or a few good games and then it peters out a bit, good start but needs to maintain it over the season.

Ultimately I think it's great that we can always start Willian or Pepe and have the other one to call on from the bench if we need them. Too often last season we needed to make changes and had little attacking talent to call upon.

some people saying he had a fantastic game and may do a vanishing act but I don't think he had a fantastic game where he was beating players and breaking lines, it wasn't that kind of game yesterday there was very little room or space to play. Willian will have better games than yesterday and I think the kind of things he brought to the game yesterday will be what we see regularly, high passing accuracy, winning free kicks, making himself available in the final 3rd, being direct, working hard and doing the work off the ball as well. I think what people mean when they say he is invisible for a few games are like when he puts in a performance like yesterday, they are expecting him to be beating players every game and running riot, he will have those games but even on an average day like yesterday what he offers is far more than what most of our players offer on a good day.

I believe he can, Mate. He has maintained high quality performance for years at Chelsea. He's not Mkhitaryan.

I think he’s gonna play a similar role to Rosicky/Benayoun that you’ll see him starting the big games ahead of Pepe or Lacazette with Auba up front.

Benayoun was critical in those final games in 11/12 for us when he played on the left. He did well.

Benayoun and Arteta saved our midfeld in 11/12. Made up for dogshit signings like Santos and Gervinho.

Great debut. Can't wait to see him lift a few trophies with us.

he struggled to get going today today, but West Ham where playing negative football, i counted 9 men back for most of our attacking moves, he couldn't find a way through.

I thought he was fine, played some key passes in the first half but attackers didn't do anything with them.

Still think he's a much better option than Pepe atm.

As Chelsea fans said, he turns up when he wants to and rarely creates.

This might turn out to the true over the season, time will tell.
