Chelsea decision to let Willian join Arsenal has come under fire after the Brazilian made an immediate impact for his new club in the Premier League.

"I cannot believe Chelsea let Willian go.

The Blues were keen to keep Willian at Stamford Bridge but failed to meet his demand of a new three-year deal and that opened the door for Arsenal to swoop in and take him on a free transfer.

Arsenal decision to hand the 33-year-old a long-term deal was questioned by some critics but he gave the best possible response to the doubters by providing two assists in the 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday.
