Willian is living up to his promise to refuse to celebrate against his former club after bagging the opener for Fulham in a clash with Chelsea
Former Chelsea star Willian refused to celebrate on Sunday after opening the scoring for Fulham against his former club.
The 34-year-old suffered a first-half shot from a Lewis Hall error that deflected into the Chelsea net.
Instead of celebrating the finish, he held up his former club’s hands and accepted his team-mate’s congratulations.
Graham Potter’s men equalized in the second half through Kalidou Koulibaly but are down to 10 men after Joao Felix was sent off.
Fulham later took the lead after a first goal in 10 months for Carlos Vinicius.
Willian spent seven seasons at Stamford Bridge, scoring 63 goals in 339 games for the West London club.
He won a number of trophies for them including two Premier Leagues, an FA Cup and a Europa League.
Before the game, the winger said: “If I have to score against them, I will score. I won’t party
“I have to respect her. I was there for seven years. But I will still do my best against them and do my best for Fulham.
He kept his word after the event and was applauded by BT Sport pundit Joe Cole for his first-half performance.
