Soccer – Blues keep fingers crossed over Hazard

Chelsea, who are 8/15 with bet365 to beat West Brom on Saturday, have concerns regarding the fitness of playmaker Eden Hazard after he was forced to sit out training with the Belgium national side over the weekend. Belgium manager Roberto Martinez says the injuries are nothing too serious from the 3-3 draw with Mexico on Friday, but the Blues boss Antonio Conte will be hoping no risks are taken when Belgium meet Japan in a friendly clash on Tuesday. "Hazard did not train on Sunday but there is nothing serious," Martinez told reporters. "He was hit on Friday, but there is nothing to be worried about, we are going to assess the situation tomorrow, the reasoning is the same for Romelu Lukaku and the other players who played more than 45 minutes on Friday."
