Eden Hazard will be out of action for up to two weeks and could miss Chelsea’s Premier League match’s with Crystal Palace and Man City next month.
Hazard took no part in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Stoke at the Bet365 Stadium on Saturday after pulling up in training with calf injury 24 hours earlier.
Next weekend is an international break and the 26-year-old will miss Belgium’s World Cup Qualifier against Greece on Saturday and the friendly with Russia on Tuesday.
Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez revealed the midfielder will be on the sidelines for the next 10 to 15 days with a calf injury.
He went on to say;
“He has been in Belgium but not with the group, and we are working with Chelsea to get the best treatment,” said Martinez.
“It is a big problem to lose Hazard, it is obvious that we wanted to have him, but it will be a good test for us without him.”
“I see enough players in our team who can take over his role.”
