Chelsea midfielder praises Eden Hazard and Willian

Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has praised Eden Hazard and Willian, calling them the most skilful players in the Chelsea team.

The Belgium attacking maestro Hazard has been vital in Chelsea's good display this season, placing them at the top of the Premier League table with a seven point lead.

Willian, on the other hand, has had a good impact as his work rate and creativity helps give Mourinho's team some sort of cutting edge, with the Brazilian winger scoring during key moments - like his late goal against Everton helped the west London club seal a win.

However, Mikel lifted the lid on Hazard and Willian's training ground prowess.

“I’ll go for Willian and Eden Hazard [as Chelsea’s most skilful players],” Mikel told Chelsea’s website.

“They’re both very quick and technical. It’s very difficult to get the ball off them. Willian is just too quick, he has quick feet. He waits for you to make the first move and when you do, he’s gone.

“Hazard doesn’t run around much in training, but you just give him the ball and let him do what he does. What you can do sometimes is just kick them!”
