Abraham likens Aston Villa’s Grealish to Chelsea talisman Hazard

Tammy Abraham has likened Aston Villa teammate Jack Grealish to Chelsea star Eden Hazard.

Abraham, who is on a season-long loan at Villa Park from Chelsea, praised Grealish who has shone for Dean Smith’s side since returning from injury.

The 23-year-old has scored twice in his three appearances since returning to the side, with three consecutive victories taking Villa into the play-off places.

Abraham was full of praise for Grealish, who has captained the side in James Chester’s absence, likening the playmaker to Belgium international Hazard.

“Jack is an unbelievable player,” Abraham told DriveTime.

“The things he has, things he can do with the ball – you can’t teach it. He’s born with it.

“He reminds me of Eden Hazard. Once Jack adds a few more goals and assists, he’ll be on that level.

“He has the same attributes – the way he dribbles, protects the ball, sees a pass, plays one-twos. He’s very intelligent.

“Him coming back has been great for us.”
