Chelsea optimistic on Hazard return

Chelsea are optimistic that midfielder Eden Hazard will be making a return from injury sooner than expected, according to The Telegraph.

The Belgian left the game injured during Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final victory over PSG and missed the 1-0 victory at Swansea on Sunday.


Hazard has been a vital player for Chelsea this season and remains the club’s top scorer and they will be hoping he will return in time for their Premier League title push.


"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," Chelsea assistant first-team coach Steve Holland said.


"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."


The Blues are currently two points behind table toppers Liverpool but still have to travel to Anfield in the final games of the season.


Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City cannot afford any more slip ups if they are all to make a push for the Premier League trophy but as it stands, it is firmly in Liverpool’s hands.


"No matter how much you try to hide it and take the players' minds away from it, in this world of technology that we live in there is always a way of someone finding out at some point," added Holland.


"We were aware as the afternoon progressed from when we had the team meeting to when we left for the stadium, then when we were in the dressing room and out on the pitch, that the scenario was changing all the time.


"Obviously, it was a good day for Liverpool, and it looks like being an exciting conclusion to the season.


"We have probably got to win all of our games, one way or another.”
