Chelsea winger Hazard could miss Atletico trip

Chelsea assistant coach Steve Holland has admitted that winger Eden Hazard must return to training quickly if he is to feature in Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first-leg tie against Atletico Madrid, writes Sky Sports.

The Belgian has not played since the second leg of the quarter-final against Paris St. Germain, when he was forced off with a calf injury. He will definitely miss Saturday’s game at home to Sunderland, and Holland concedes that Hazard now faces a race against time to be fit to play at the Vicente Calderon.


He said: "He hasn't trained yet but that doesn't definitely rule him out of the game on Tuesday. He's obviously close but it's a day-by-day one at the moment. For him to be considered for Tuesday, he obviously needs to train with the group very quickly.


"Normal procedure is that you wouldn't ask a player to play in a game without some training beforehand, so he's got to train with the group in the next couple of days. He has got a calf injury and the injury is very low on the calf.


"Normally, if I said calf to you, you would think of that bulge just below your knee. It's lower than that, almost at the back of the Achilles, and it's quite deep. So, it's an unusual calf injury."


Hazard has scored 17 goals and made 10 assists in 46 games for Chelsea this season, form which has led to him being shortlisted for the Premier League’s Player of the Season award.
