Terreur, who writes for Belgian newspaper HLN, went on to explain that Hazard will be expected to pull out of his national team’s forthcoming fixtures.

Terreur tweeted on Saturday morning: “Belgium are aware that Eden Hazard has suffered a muscle injury. Would confirm yesterday’s reports that he hasn’t travelled to Stoke.

“Eden Hazard is expected to pull out of the Belgium squad for the games vs Greece and Russia, once the extent of his injury is known. #cfc”
