In those 313 games, Willian has found the back of the net on 55 occasions and provided 57 assists.
The winger has also won a plethora of trophies during his stint with Chelsea, including the Premier League and FA Cup.

Willian on Chelsea contract
But Willian’s current Chelsea deal is set to expire in July of 2020.
Should Willian have not put pen to paper over a new deal by January of 2020, foreign clubs will be able to sign him to a pre-contract agreement.
Yet despite Willian being 31 and his contract running out, he has still been a regular feature for Chelsea so far this campaign, appearing in 15 of Chelsea’s 16 PL ties.
And it does, according to what Willian has said, sound like both he and the club want to come to some sort of arrangement over a new deal.
As per Simon Johnson of The Athletic, Willian reportedly stated that his agent is speaking to Chelsea and he hopes they can have some good news soon:
“My agent and the club are talking & I hope we can have some good news soon. It’s normal to have proposals & speculation, especially for players who are at the end of contract. But my focus is 100% on Chelsea & the season.”
