EDEN HAZARD has pulled out of Belgium’s squad to face Greece and Russia due to a calf injury.

Antonio Conte is keen to keep his star fit for the remainder of the season with the Blues closing in on the Premier League title.
Some will suspect foul play on the part of Chelsea in trying to keep their wounded star man out of further trouble, but Hazard’s record for his country is impeccable and he has captained his country on many occasions.

Chelsea struggled to a win over Stoke without their star forward, who has been absolutely flying in recent games. Missing him for another Premier League fixture would be a blow, although Terreur’s followup tweet suggests that the winger may be back sooner rather than later.
