First, they were beaten 1-0 at home by West Ham and, although they then beat Aston Villa, they were soon defeated by Everton at Goodison Park last weekend.

Now, they have lost to Bournemouth 1-0, meaning they have failed to score in two of their last three home games in the Premier League as well.

The starting line-up saw just three changes from the last league match, with Antonio Rudiger coming in for Andreas Christensen, Emerson replacing Reece James and Jorginho taking Mateo Kovacic’s place. That meant that Willian continued in the first XI.

The supporters were far from happy with his inclusion. Indeed, the Brazil international is clearly a favourite for Frank Lampard. He has started 13 of the past 14 games for the Blues, and has been singled out for his displays by his boss this term.

He struggled with free-kicks and corners during the match, with him failing to hit the first man for at least two of the latter. Lampard may give the responsibility to someone else in the future.

Willian may not have been the only poor performer, but he was singled out by the supporters. Hopefully, he will improve next week as the south-west London outfit face Tottenham.
