Eden Hazard admits his Chelsea team-mate has ‘too much quality’
Eden Hazard heaps praise on Willian after Chelsea's 4-0 win over Qarabag on Wednesday night
Eden Hazard lavished praise on Willian after the pair combined brilliantly for Chelsea in the 4-0 victory over Qarabag in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Willian was restored to the starting line-up for Antonio Conte’s side and the Brazilian was in fine form throughout as he scored twice in Baku to help the Blues make it through to the last 16 of Europe’s elite club competition with a game to spare.
Hazard and Willian combined in the lead-up to the first-half penalty and then showed a great understanding as the Belgian’s backheel set up the Brazilian for the west London side’s second goal.
And Hazard admits that he loves playing alongside Willian after the pair both sparkled for the Blues on Wednesday night.
Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Hazard said: “Too much quality. It’s easy to play with this kind of player.
“I think Pedro gave the ball to him and then Willian gave the ball to me. It’s easy to find each other!”
Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday with a crunch clash against Liverpool FC at Anfield as they look to continue their climb up the table.
The west London side are currently in third place and nine points behind leaders Manchester City as they bid to try and defend their Premier League title this season.
Chelsea were impressive 4-0 winners over West Brom last weekend.
