Hazard was the target in the 2-2 draw on Saturday against Man United
He could miss Europa League clash with BATE & Prem game with Burnley
The injury’s not too serious but the Belgian required treatment
Eden Hazard knew some rough fouls from Ashley Young and Nemanja Matic in particular as the Blues only managed a 2-2 home draw against Manchester United on Saturday. The Telegraph’s Matt Law writes that Hazard felt a back pain the following morning and required a treatment.
Although the injury was the result of a collision with Ashley Young in the opening half, Maurizio Sarri kept his player on the pitch for the entire 90 minutes. The injury is not classified as serious but it could rule Hazard out of at least the next two games – the Europa League game against BATE Borisov and an arguably more crucial Premier League trip to Burnley on Sunday.
What about Burnley though?
The issue is evident as the 27-year-old is the main force for his team having netted 8 goals in the past nine appearances. With both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud struggling to score goals someone would have to shoulder the responsibility if Hazard is indeed injured.
