Former Chelsea star Eden Hazard spent seven years playing for Chelsea before sealing a move to Real Madrid in 2019.

The former Chelsea superstar is now set to play against his former club for the first time in his career, as Liverpool and Chelsea have a Champions League semi final date later this month.

Hazard has spent the bulk of his time at Real Madrid on the treatment table, but is now back to training after his most recent injury.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane opted against risking Hazard for their second leg clash against Liverpool, and is saving the former Chelsea fans’ favourite for more important games coming ahead.

Zidane had said: “There is no plan with Hazard. We are not going to force anything. It will be little by little. I don’t tell you when I see him.

“If it is in three days, better. If it is in 10 days, well then ok.”

Chelsea fans will be hoping Hazard isn’t at his best when the two sides meet at Valdebebas on April 27 before meeting again at Stamford Bridge on May 5.
