Eden Hazard could miss Atletico Madrid clash

Published Add your comment

Chelsea star Eden Hazard could miss his side’s semi-final clash against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Belgium international has been ruled out of Chelsea’s Premier League encounter against Sunderland on Saturday as he has failed to recover from the calf injury he picked up against Paris Saint-Germain.

Hazard has not returned to training since hobbling off just 18 minutes into Chelsea’s quarter-final second leg tie against PSG.

The former Lille man missed Chelsea’s 1-0 away win against Swansea last Sunday as he has failed to shrug off the injury knock.

Chelsea assistant Steve Holland today confirmed Hazard would miss the Blues’ next match and was a major doubt for next week's all-important clash at the Vicente Calderon.

''Eden won't be fit for tomorrow,” said Holland.

"I wouldn't say definitely out for Madrid at this stage, but he's still a major doubt having not trained with the team as yet.

"The good news is that everyone else in the squad trained today. We're not in bad shape."

Mourinho will be hoping his star playmaker can recover in time to face the current La Liga leaders as Hazard has played a major role for Chelsea in Europe and the Premier League.

Hazard, who was today shortlisted for this season’s PFA Player and Young Player of the Year awards, is Chelsea’s top scorer - having scored 16 goals so far this campaign.
