Willian has risked annoying some Arsenal supporters with what he did prior to the Gunners’ clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian wide man signed for the north London club last summer after leaving the Blues with his contract expiring.
So far in his Arsenal career, Willian has failed to impress the club’s fan base too much, with the experienced winger scoring his first goal for the side in the weekend’s win over West Bromwich Albion.
Things were completely different at Chelsea, where the 32-year-old scored 37 goals in over 200 appearances for the west London club.
Now, Willian may have done something that could irritate some of the Gunners’ fan base.
The experienced Brazilian was pictured speaking to some of his former Chelsea team-mates prior to kick off at Stamford Bridge, as spotted by football.london reporter Adam Newson.
Given what Eden Hazard was slated for in the Spanish press last week following Real Madrid’s Champions League exit, it was perhaps a risky move from Willian, but it is before the action at least.
Hazard was pictured laughing and joking with his old Chelsea team-mates after the match at Stamford Bridge, which didn’t go down well in the Spanish capital.
The Belgian winger was forced to apologise for his actions at the full-time whistle, where he was laughing with Kurt Zouma.

In a post on his Instagram story, the former Chelsea man, addressing the Madrid supporters, said: “I am sorry. I have read lots of opinions about me today and it was not my intention to offend the Real Madrid fans.
“It has always been my dream to play for Real Madrid and I came here to win.
“The season is not over and together we must now battle for La Liga! Hala Madrid.”
