'The worst period of my career this season' - Willian admits to struggles after move to Arsenal
Willian, who has yet to score since moving to Arsenal from Chelsea last summer, has acknowledged that his performances at the Emirates Stadium have not been good enough but says his recent upturn in form has been down to his hard work on the training ground, with the Brazilian assisting plenty of team-mates in recent weeks.

Willian has admitted that his time at Arsenal has coincided with the worst form of his career after an underwhelming start to life at the Emirates Stadium.
The Brazilian has struggled to recreate his best form for the Gunners since moving to north London from city rivals Chelsea, with Mikel Arteta's side also suffering a terrible run in autumn which has left them rooted in mid-table.
The veteran playmaker has acknowledged that his performances during the slump were not up to the required standard and that was expected.
