The Chelsea Player Who's Been Giving Tips To Watford's Budding Brazilian Richarlison

The Chelsea Player Who's Been Giving Tips To Watford's Budding Brazilian Richarlison

Watford's budding Brazilian has been getting tips from a Chelsea star.

Richarlison is proving to be a shrewd piece of business. He arrived in the Premier League from Fluminense, and has taken England's top flight by storm, having scored five goals in his first 12 appearances.

The 20-year-old is already attracting plenty of interest from around the league with Arsenal, and even Chelsea, keeping tabs on the promising forward.

And his form is partly down to fellow Brazilian Willian who's been giving him tips.

As well as Chelsea's attacking midfielder, David Luiz has also extended a hand since he transferred to England.

"My family is not here so we get together and are always doing barbecues at Luiz's home. We go on the PlayStation and I play as Watford, they play as Chelsea, and I always beat them!" Richarlison told Standard Sport.

He added: "We go out to restaurants in London too. I've gone on the London Eye with them, seen Big Ben and things like that. They help me a lot and give lots of advice on how to live here.

"He is always suggesting what type of plays I should try or what I can do better to score. The keepers are very big here and Willian says there is a particular way to score against them.

While also revealing how Willian is almost like his manager: "He shows me videos, telling me what positions I should take up, how to be intelligent on the pitch, how to move around. It is almost like he is my manager!

"My professional career has only been going for three years and I have to learn from players like Willian and Luiz. People who have played at the World Cup.

Richarlison will be hoping to test his wits against Willian and Luiz (unlikely to play) tonight as Watford host the defending champions at Vicarage Road.

How will he fare against Chelsea?
