Willian will come face-to-face with his former side Arsenal at Craven Cottage on Sunday.

And in a chat with Sky Sports, Willian said things didn’t just work out for him at Arsenal.

“Yeah I wish I’d never left. Of course it’s easy now to say something but when you stop to think about all the situations I say to myself ‘I wish I never left.

“But it’s life, I’m happy now at Fulham and I’m enjoying myself there.

“They (Arsenal) are flying now. I think it was in the middle when things were changing a lot. I was excited when I signed with them, I was training hard but it just didn’t work and that’s it.”
