The shirt was vacated by Eden Hazard after he joined Real Madrid earlier this summer.

Reports claimed Callum Hudson-Odoi was set to receive the talismanic number.

While some thought Christian Pulisic should wear it after joining Chelsea as Hazard’s replacement.

However, it appears that Willian has been given the No 10 jersey for his years of service at Stamford Bridge.

He appeared to confirm it in an interview with YouTube channel Desimpedidos.

Willian said: “Now the No 10 is mine! The club told me it is mine.”

WILL I NEVER

But supporters don’t appear to be too keen, with many criticising Frank Lampard’s decision.

One tweeted: “Willian get the 10 is absolutely criminal and nobody can tell me otherwise.

“He has done nothing, and shown nothing to deserve it.”

Another wrote: “Chelsea giving Willian number 10, making him seem like a key player just so they can ask for more money when selling him next summer.”

One added: “Willian is on set pieces, plays as a winger and has 28 goals in six seasons for us.

“We react by not selling him for £60m at the age of 30 but with a new contract and the number 10 shirt.
