Eden Hazard took to social media on Sunday morning to pay tribute to Willian after Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Belgian playmaker gave the Blues the lead in the eighth minute at Villa Park thanks to an assist from his Brazilian team-mate.

However, the home side equalised through Jores Okore’s header at the start of the second half.

Chelsea went ahead again shortly after thanks to Branislav Ivanovic’s 66th-minute goal and sealed the three points to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points.

Hazard was clearly thrilled by the victory and used his Instagram account to praise his team-mates.

He uploaded the photo above and wrote: “Good 3 points yesterday… Happy with the goal thanks @willianborges88 for the assist. Have a good day.”

Hazard has scored nine goals and made five assists in 24 Premier League games for Chelsea so far this season.

He has also netted twice and set up two in the Champions League for Jose Mourinho’s men.
