Willow Warbler

Is it a Willow Warbler or a Common Chiffchaff, the more I look at it, the more confused I get. This one has dark legs like a Chiffchaff, but the body structure is more streamlined like a Warbler and not rounded like a Chiffchaff. Also the eye colouring looked more like that of a warbler to me.Hence My conclusion, if you feel I am wrong please let me know.
The bird was spotted on my ship off the coast of Oman and probably was so sleepy that it did not notice me sneak very close to it. (Managed to place my camera 4 feet from the bird) You can notice that it actually is taking a siesta in the second picture.
