Eden Hazard missed Chelsea’s last Premier League game, away to Sunderland on Wednesday, with a knock he picked up during last weekend’s win over West Bromwich Albion. He was replaced by Willian, who had not made a league start since early October. While Willian was involved in the game’s only goal, there’s a marked difference between what he and Hazard can bring to the team.
