Chelsea ace Hazard may miss crunch Spurs clash

Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard could miss the derby with Tottenham.

Hazard, though, picked up an ankle injury during Belgium’s 2-2 draw with Ivory Coast – which has made him a doubt.

Hazard only came on just after the hour mark, but was caught by Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote in a challenge.

Belgian boss Marc Wilmots confirmed the injury was not too bad and said: “His boot was damaged, but Eden hasn’t twisted his ankle.”

Hazard played-on and completed the match, and he insists that he should be fit for the clash with Spurs.

“It hurt, but I think I can play this weekend,” Hazard told Het Laatste Nieuws.

“After 20 seconds I got a kick. A nice welcome, but I’m not worried about the injury.”
