Chelsea could reportedly be without star player Eden Hazard for two games with a back injury after he received some rough treatment in the draw with Manchester United at the weekend.
The Blues were held to a 2-2 draw at home against United, with the in-form Hazard shackled pretty effectively by Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho.
Ashley Young did an admirable job at right-back for Mourinho’s side and kept Hazard very quiet, with the Belgian possibly now picking up an injury as a result of being singled out in that way.
The Telegraph report that the 27-year-old now looks a doubt for Chelsea’s upcoming games against Bate Borisov and perhaps even their next Premier League match with Burnley.
Still, with Hazard their top scorer so far this season in a fine start made by new manager Maurizio Sarri, they really can’t do without him for too long at all.
Chelsea have relied on Hazard for moments of magic to decide a number of games, with the likes of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud really not pulling their weight up front.
