Willian Taunts Arsenal Over The Transfer Of Alexis Sanchez To Manchester United

Willian has shared his thoughts on Alexis Sanchez moving from Arsenal to Manchester United, taunting Chelsea's London rivals in the process.

(Arsenal - What could have been:)

Sanchez finally completed his transfer to United with Henrikh Mkhitaryan going the other way as part of a straight swap deal.

As a result, Arsenal will be a weaker prospect. Well, that's according to Willian who feels the Gunners have been dealt a huge blow while comparing the situation to if Eden Hazard left Stamford Bridge.

"To lose this kind of player is not easy. It would be like losing Eden here - he is a great player," he told Evening Standard.

"Is he that important to them? Of course. No one wants to lose this kind of player. They are two great players but [unlike Sanchez] Eden is still here," he added.

While Arsenal have other quality players, Willian suggests Arsene Wenger lacks a special player.

"Great players have quality to play in matches like this. Arsenal have other players but Sanchez is special.

And who could forget Chelsea's sublime second goal against Brighton in the league over the weekend?!

Michy Batshuayi, Hazard and the Brazilian combined beautifully to score a delicious goal.

"My goal against Brighton was beautiful and it was one more clean sheet for us. We scored four goals, which came after a few games where we haven't scored as much.
