Chelsea star Eden Hazard only just returned from the injury he sustained in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United, and the Belgium international will miss Chelsea’s next game against PAOK due to injury after suffering another injury against Tottenham.
Hazard suffered a heavy tackle from Serge Aurier late on in the Blues’ 3-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last time out, and was hobbling around afterwards.
Maurizio Sarri has now revealed that the Belgian is out injured but that he should be back in time for our next league game against Fulham.
“Hazard is not a serious injury,” Sarri explained at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday ahead of the Europa League tie against PAOK.
“I think he will not be able to play tomorrow but I think he will be able to recover him for the next match, the Premier League match.”
Sarri has revealed that he’s also worried about Hazard’s physical form having only recovered from another injury recently.
“I am worried because 25 days ago he had a back injury, now the ankle,” the Italian continued. “And so I think that he has lost a lot of trainings so it’s normal that at the moment he’s not at the top of his physical condition. But he needs to have one week of training and a couple of matches to get to the top level of physical condition.
“But I think that this week is useful for him to have training and then we will see. Of course I think that he can’t play 10 matches in 30 days, so sometimes he has to rest.”
Sarri also revealed that the only other injury problem is Victor Moses, with Sarri explaining: “I spoke with the doctor minutes ago and Moses has a back problem this morning, so I think he will not be able to play tomorrow.”
