Ahead of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup tie with Arsenal later today, Chelsea star Willian has revealed Arsenal have lost a special player in Alexis Sanchez.
“To lose this kind of player is not easy. It would be like losing Eden here – he is a great player,” Willian told Standard Sport.
“Is he that important to them? Of course.
“No one wants to lose this kind of player. They are two great players but [unlike Sanchez] Eden is still here.
“Great players have quality to play in matches like this. Arsenal have other players but Sanchez is special.”
