Chelsea injury update: Full list of Blues set to return to action
The latest Chelsea injury update on the likes of Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Radamel Falcao
Eden Hazard could miss Belgium’s friendly clash with Spain on Tuesday night due to illness, Marc Wilmots has revealed.
The Chelsea playmaker featured for the full 90 minutes as Belgium secured a 3-1 win over Italy in last week’s international friendly.
However, Hazard missed a training session on Monday due to illness, with the 24-year-old showing signs of a fever. Wilmots said Hazard would be assessed in the build-up to Tuesday’s clash.
Chelsea fans will be hoping that the PFA player of the year will have fully recovered in time to face Norwich City in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
Wilmots told HLN: “Eden is sick. He has some fever and a sore throat. He will remain until tomorrow in his room.
“We’ll see how it goes, and will then have to decide whether it will be OK on Tuesday night for him.”
