Chelsea Star Leaves Stamford Bridge After 17 Years at The ClubFootball
Former Arsenal Star Taunts London Club on Social Media After Rivals Chelsea Defeated Tottenham
- Arsenal flop Willian took to Instagram to declare that "London is blue" in the aftermath of Chelsea's 2-0 victory over Tottenham
- Second-half goals from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva gave the Blues their third victory over their London rivals
- Willian decided to terminate his contract with Arsenal and now plays for Brazilian club Corinthians
Former Arsenal midfielder Willian has trolled the Gunners on social media after posting on his Instagram account that “London is Blue” in celebration of Chelsea’s victory.
Thomas Tuchel’s side had defeated fellow rivals Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in the North London derby, with Hakim Ziyech scoring a stunner and Thiago Silver netting the game's second goal.
The win was Chelsea’s third over Tottenham in a month and it cemented their position as arguably the best team in London after Arsenal had stuttered playing a goalless draw against Burnley earlier on Sunday.
According to a report via Daily Star, Willian, who spent seven years at Stamford Bridge before a colossally underwhelming season at Arsenal, showed exactly where his allegiances lie.
The Brazilian responded to Chelsea's official Instagram page following Sunday's result by commenting “London Is Blue” much to the despair of Arsenal fans.
Some Gunners supporters still feel enraged by the Chelsea star’s disappointing stint at the Emirates stadium.
After signing a hefty £190,000-a-week contract, Willian scored just once in 37 matches for the Gunners before leaving by mutual consent a year later.
Arsenal are currently placed 6th on the current league standings with 36points from 21 games with the Gunners having one game in hand against the current 4th placed team Manchester United.
