Eden Hazard sent a heartfelt tribute to Willian as he scored Chelsea’s second goal in their 3-0 victory over Leicester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Belgian playmaker netted the Blues’ second goal after Diego Costa had given the home side the lead in the seventh minute at Stamford Bridge.

Victor Moses then rounded off the scoring with a goal late on to make it 3-0 and wrap up a solid win for the home side.

Willian missed the game after having been granted compassionate leave by his club following the death of his mother last week.

And Hazard revealed that he paid tribute to Willian by holding two fingers on each hand aloft after scoring his goal in recognition of the Brazilian’s Chelsea shirt number.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Hazard said: “My celebration was for Willy.

“He lost his mother and we are thinking about him. We hope he can come back stronger.”
