Chelsea news: Eden Hazard makes controversial training claim – will Conte accept it?

Hazard helped Chelsea secure a draw at Anfield on Saturday as Willian’s late strike earned a point.

Chelsea have struggled this season with the addition of European football and Hazard has admitted to have to take things easy in training.

The Belgium star claims he needs to save his legs and that he’s also worried his team-mates will kick him.

He said: “Do I protect my legs in training? Yes, yes, yes! To be fair, in training I don’t give everything.

“When we have drills, some people go crazy, but I don’t want to be kicked in training. I try to have a break.

“We don’t have many breaks in the season, so I try in training to have more of a rest, and then in the games I give everything.

“Do I get a lot of bruises? Yes. Sometimes I’m feeling a lot. I get a lot of fouls, a lot on my ankle.

“When I’m on the pitch I do receive kicks, but that is part of football and I’m not complaining.”

Hazard has scored three goals in 10 Premier League appearances and has three more in the Champions League after missing the start of the season with an ankle injury.

He was injured on international duty and didn’t play until the middle of December.

“I do everything for my body when I’m at the training ground,” Hazard added.

“I know my body is strong and I am working on that.

“It is important I do. I’m lucky to have good health, I take good care of my body the best I can.”
