Eden Hazard is an early doubt for Chelsea’s match against Bate Borisov on Thursday in the Europa League match. According to the Telegraph journalist Matt Law, Eden Hazard is suffering from a back pain which is affecting him badly for last few days. Eden Hazard was looking really tired in the match against Manchester United. The rough tackles of the United players were really painful for the Belgian winger. One tackle of Ashley Young in the second half of the match was really harsh. Eden Hazard was looking in utmost pain and he had to take the help of the physio to get back in the match.

 

After that incident, Eden Hazard was not able to play his natural game. The Belgian winger is continuously playing without any kind of rest. After the end of the previous season, the Belgian has got no rest and he has to join the World Cup preparatory camp of the National side. Eden Hazard has helped the Belgian National side to finish at the third position in the World Cup recently concluded at Russia. Eden Hazard has been in superb form in this season for Chelsea.

The Blues have really missed the performance of the Belgian winger in the previous season under the management of Antonio Conte. The Italian manager has used Eden Hazard in an awkward position. Eden Hazard is a natural winger. He is not very much comfortable to play as a false nine. But Antonio Conte has used Eden Hazard as the false nine role in the previous season in most of the big matches. That’s why it was an underperforming one for Eden Hazard so far in the previous season. But in this season, Eden Hazard is showing his real class under the management of the Italian manager, Maurizio Sarri. Maurizio Sarri is trying to implement a new strategy at Stamford Bridge. But this Chelsea side is getting too much dependent on the Belgian winger. The Belgian winger has been in poor form against Manchester United in the previous match in the Premier League and the Blues were looking helpless against Manchester United in the second half of the match.

According to the journalist of Telegraph, after finishing the match against Manchester United on Saturday, Eden Hazard is feeling the back pain throughout the next day. So, Maurizio Sarri will not like to take a risk to play him against Bate Borisov on Thursday in the Europa League match at Stamford Bridge. After that the doctors will assess the condition of Eden Hazard. So he may be out of the squad of the Blues against Burnley in the away match. It will be a difficult one for the Blues if Eden Hazard does not play in the match against Burnley in the Premier League. We have seen this Chelsea side to struggle to break the deadlock of the defensive sides. Burnley will surely try to hold back in the defense and go to counter attacks occasionally. So, the absence of Eden Hazard might be a big factor for the Blues in the next two matches.
