Willian was handed a three-year deal last summer upon the expiry of his Chelsea contract, but was dropped just a few months into the season.

But now, the winger wants to show Arsenal fans the sort of performances he proved he was capable of at Stamford Bridge.

Asked if this is the ‘worst professional moment to date’ by ESPN, he said: “I think so.

“I feel ready to reach the level I reached at Chelsea.

“That is my goal, what I hope for, especially at the end of the season.

“I will try to do my best to help Arsenal in the best way possible, and reach the level I had when I was playing at Chelsea.”

Having won two titles with the Blues, Willian knows a thing or two about being successful in the Premier League.

And he believes that Arsenal are in ‘good hands’ under Mikel Arteta.

He added: “I think it has the potential to be a great project, it’s a great club, it’s in the hands of a good manager, it has everything to become one of the best managers in the world.

“Arsenal has everything to become a powerhouse again, to fight for titles, to play in the Champions League again, that’s what we players want.

“He always tries to talk to the players individually, even on the pitch, when he finishes training he calls the player, explains what he wants from the player, where the player should be, receive the ball… In other words, he is always trying to help the players to be better.

“There is no complaint about this, he is doing a great job, he is always looking for the players in the best possible way, giving them ideas, guiding them, showing them what he wants. Arsenal is in good hands.”

The Gunners are currently ninth in the table, while Willian is yet to score in 21 Premier League outings to date.
