Belgian may now miss Friday’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Scotland.
Chelsea have been hit with a major injury scare after star man Eden Hazard was forced to limp out of training with Belgium on Tuesday after complaining of pain in his Achilles, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The Belgian international has reportedly been suffering with the problem for the past few weeks now, and the medical staff with his national team will assess the injury over the course of the next few days before deciding whether the 22-year-old will be fit enough to take part in Friday’s Fifa World Cup qualifier against Scotland.
For the west London club, however, they will not want any undue risks taken with Hazard after the brilliant impact that the playmaker has already made at Stamford Bridge since he arrived from Ligue 1 outfit Lille last summer for a whopping £32m.
In his debut campaign with the Blues, Hazard managed to record an eye-catching 13 goals and 20 assists in total in just his 62 matches for the club in all competitions, including an equally impressive nine strikes and 11 assists in his 34 Premier League contests.
And with the Belgian having already made a fine start to the new season under returning boss Jose Mourinho, the last thing that Chelsea want now will be to lose Hazard for any period of time.
