Eden Hazard limped off in last night’s 8-1 routing of Estonia. Roberto Martinez was quick to replace the Chelsea gem 20 minutes before full time.
Chelsea fans will be sweating over the superstar’s fitness who received a knock but seems to be fit. Martinez does not want to lose his star players and his decision to withdraw Eden Hazard was evidence of the fact.
Hazard scored before the half time to give his side a 3-0 advantage. It was his 8th goal in as many appearances for both club and country.
Romelu Lukaku came to impress as a substitute by grabbing a brace in the rout.
“Eden Hazard has no injury, but received a kick on the calf,” the Spaniard said after the game in Brussels.
Antonio Conte will hope that Eden Hazard is available and fire on all cylinders against Middlesbrough on Sunday. The Blues have won five games on the bounce in the Premier league without conceding.
