Chelsea’s Eden Hazard picked up an injury during their Champions League quarterfinal match against PSG. It still remains unknown when the Belgium player will be back in action for his club but according to the first-team coach Steve Holland, he could return sooner rather than later.
“Every player is fit at this stage, with the exception of Eden, who should be sooner rather than later. It is still a little bit too early to say for sure. Having a clear week this week is a big advantage.”
“I can’t stress enough the extra demand that the Champions League brings with those fixtures in the week. It is just what the doctor ordered to give the players a bit of a break this week.” Holland told the tyskland portugal odds betting website.
The side of Jose Mourinho probably has one of the busiest schedules in the Premier League as they not only have to conclude the season competing along with Liverpool and Manchester City for the league title but they are also battling against Europe’s best in the Champions League.
Chelsea has to lock horns with Sunderland, Liverpool, Norwich City and Cardiff City as those are the last remaining matches for them in the Premier League and even though it may seem like fairly simple opponents, they cannot afford to drop any points if they want to continue their charge at the top of the Premier League.
Athletic Madrid’s Diego Costa picked up an injury recently but the medical staff of the team confirmed that the Brazilian is still going to be able to perform for the upcoming Champions League match against Chelsea as the injury he picked up was not very serious and this is something that Mourinho is hoping will happen with Eden Hazard as the Belgium midfielder is a key player for Chelsea.
