According to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin, Eden Hazard’s brilliant displays for Chelsea have overshadowed Willian’s superb performances for the Blues.
Without Hazard in the team, Willian was impressive as Chelsea beat Burnley 4-0 on Sunday.
“One of the problems with having a player of the standard of Eden Hazard in your side is that it tends to over-shadow everybody else,” Nevin told the Premier League Show.
“Since he came to club in 2012 he’s had the left-hand side of attack sorted.
“That’s only left only one position available on the right-hand side of the attack and the one player above everyone else who has come closest to making it his own is Willian.
“His ball skills are an absolute given. His work rate is also incredible.
“One of the other great skills Willian has got is his freekicks.
“He scores a lot of his goals from outside the box anyway from open play but freekicks he has gone through periods where he has slew them in with goalkeepers unable to do anything.
“He works hard, he’s incredibly talented, he’s got an absolutely perfect attitude as well.”
