Willian: Chelsea must make changes

He told Daily Mail, "What was working last season with Conte suddenly can not work this season". This time they should keep the coach and look to move four to five players on. For example, we were in control during the last game against West Ham and could have won 4-1 or 4-0 but we drewI think our target was to stay in the top four and we are fifth. It's football. We have been unlucky.

Conte guided Chelsea to the title during his debut season at the club but his relationship with the board has soured this season due to his lack of involvement in the club's transfer strategy.

'We have played very well, like in the games against Atletico [Madrid] and also against Barcelona, and if we always have this consistency we would be fighting for every trophy.

"Of course we still have the FA Cup to fight for".

'These are the small details we have to change. The only title we can win is the FA Cup so we go for that.

'I can not say I am happy because obviously at the moment we are not in the top four.

Having joined Chelsea only in the last summer, midfielder Danny Drinkwater is pondering over leaving the club at the end of the season.

With an FA Cup semi-final against the Saints also coming up next weekend, this match will also serve as a dress rehearsal for the big game at Wembley.

The Italian is expected to leave the club at the end of the season after a disappointing second season at Stamford Bridge.

Some have suggested that Chelsea should prioritise strong personalities in their summer recruitment to make up for the experienced veterans they have lost in recent years, but Willian believes the current squad is not lacking in leadership.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has placed blame on a back injury for ruining his first season in the Premier League.

"I think we have this kind of player", he said.

Marcos Alonso, alongside Willy Caballero (centre) and Gary Cahill, was appearing as part of William Hill's partnership with Chelsea FC. I did the best choice by joining Chelsea because I have already won two Premier Leagues and a League Cup in five years.

'Before they've changed the coach, and kept the players.
