Chelsea winger Willian feels that the game against Sunderland will pose a challenge to the Blues, but insists the team will do their best to win when the two sides face each other at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho’s side are currently second in the Premier League, just two points behind leaders Liverpool. With just four games to go, they will be hoping for the Reds to drop points, while they themselves will want maximum wins under their belt from their remaining fixtures.

Gus Poyet’s side held title-contenders Manchester City to a 2-2 draw on Wednesday, and will be hoping to stage another upset as they look to survive in the Premier League.

And Willian is wary of the Black Cats, who are still six points away from a safe spot.


“It's going to be hard”, the Brazilian international was quoted as saying by Chelsea’s site.

“Sunderland are in a relegation battle so they will fight for everything. They're going to come to Stamford Bridge hoping to take at least a point home just like they did when they went to City.

“They're not going to make it easy and it's up to us to do the best we can and make sure we get the three points”, the 25-year-old added.

Chelsea will face Liverpool on 27th April at Anfield in a game that is being termed as the title-decider across many quarters.
