Eden Hazard left Chelsea for Real Madrid this summer after scoring 21 goals across all competitions for Chelsea and setting up a further 17.

Chelsea star Willian has backed Tammy Abraham to fill the goalscoring void left by Hazard’s departure to Real Madrid.

The 21 year old striker has scored seven goals already for Chelsea this season.

“I think Hazard’s exit was a big loss,” the Brazilian told Goal.

“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.”
