As often seems to be the case, the Belgian squad are experiencing injury issues.
With there being so much competition for places within the Belgium team and squad, those called up don’t want to cry off injured because they know there’s someone ready and waiting to take their place.
Under Marc Wilmots, there often appeared to be battles between the country’s football association and clubs, over pushing players with injuries or fitness issues, but under Roberto Martinez things are more cordial.
This week there’s been several players struggling with injury, including Benteke, Fellaini, Chadli and Mignolet.
Concerning for Chelsea, Eden Hazard has been added to the absent list, report HLN, and there’s no explanation for it. Toby Alderweireld also missed training today, but his wife has just given birth to a daughter, so that makes sense.
The last thing Maurizio Sarri needs is any kind of injury issue with Hazard, and Chelsea will surely want to known the reason for their player missing training.
