Willian has insisted Chelsea must fight until the end to defend their Premier League title despite the fact the notion of the Blues catching Manchester City caused him and Eden Hazard to burst out laughing.
The Chelsea duo were in high spirits after beating Huddersfield 3-1 and engaged in a bit of banter when being interviewed after the game.
The victory moved Chelsea level on points with Manchester United in second, but there is still a sizeable gap between them and leaders City.
Willian was asked if Chelsea were back in the race for the title after an impressive win and Hazard had to remind him the gap was eleven points, not 14.
‘It’s difficult, 14 points,’ says Willian before Hazard interrupts.

Hazard said: ‘Eleven now, we won. We are back.’
That response caused Hazard and Willian to burst out laughing before the Brazilian regained his composure to answer the question.
He said: ‘We have to fight until the end. We are Chelsea. We are a big club.’
