Willian believes his form will only get better after scoring on his Premier League debut for Chelsea.

The Brazilian star was brought to the club in the summer after an 11th hour bid snatched him away from under the noses of Tottenham.

The £32m fee paid to Anzhi Makhachkala seemed a heavy price to pay after Willian failed to make a Premier League appearance in the opening five game of the season.

However, Willian finally donned the blue of Chelsea in the Sunday tie against Norwich, in which he started the move that led to the second goal, before scoring a belter to seal a 3-1 win for Jose Mourinho's side.

The win would have come as a relief to the Stamford Bridge faithful, as the Canaries looked the likely winners up until Eden Hazard's winner.

Willian, who came on as a substitute, expects his influential performance to act as a launching pad for his Chelsea career.

Willian told Globo Esporte: "I am very happy to have made my Premier League debut this way.

"I did well off the bench, doing what Mourinho asked me to do. I managed to start the move that led to the second goal and then I scored the third goal.

"It was very exciting and I am not only happy for the goal, but also for the win - which was important for our team.

"I am slowly recovering my best form, gaining match fitness.

"I will try to do my best whenever I have the opportunity to play. I intend to grow with each match."
