Willian: 'Abraham can fill Hazard void'

Willian feels that in-form Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham can replace the goals which Eden Hazard contributed for the Blues before leaving for Real Madrid.

Willian has suggested that Tammy Abraham is one of a number of Chelsea players who can fill the void left by Eden Hazard.

Despite the Blues allowing Hazard to link up with Real Madrid in the summer, Abraham has indicated that he can replace the Belgian in the long term having provided seven strikes in the Premier League.

Having been left impressed by his teammate, Willian feels that Hazard's absence will be less evident as the club's academy graduates gain more experience throughout the campaign.

The Brazilian told "I think Hazard's exit was a big loss. Eden is a player that can make the difference, but I think we have players that can continue to make the difference as well.

"Abraham is playing well at the moment. He is scoring lots of goals and I am very happy for him. The young players are doing well. They can improve a lot.

"I think Chelsea is Chelsea. No matter the players we have, we have to fight until the end in every competition. That's what we want to do this season."

The West Londoners are allegedly willing to hand a new long-term contract to Abraham.
