Jermaine Jenas admitted he’s been ‘shocked’ by Antonio Conte’s reluctance to place Willian in Chelsea’s starting XI on a regular basis this season after the Brazilian bagged another goal in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

The 29-year-old has scored four goals in his past three matches, having enjoyed a run in the side and he was once again in fine form at Old Trafford, despite his side’s loss.

However, the Brazil international has found himself in and out of the team this season, starting just 14 Premier League clashes and appearing from the bench nearly as many times (13).
