Chelsea handed huge boost as Eden Hazard is passed fit for Atletico Madrid clash
Chelsea star Eden Hazard has been declared fit to face Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the club’s Champions League semi-final on Wednesday.
Hazard, speaking at the PFA award ceremony in London last night following his side’s 2-0 win against Liverpool has claimed that he is fit to face the Spanish side on Wednesday, giving his manager Jose Mourinho a huge boost. It is great news for Chelsea ahead of the biggest game their season.
“I watched the Liverpool game, which was difficult for me. I prefer to be on the pitch but the team was brilliant.”
Hazard hurt himself during Chelsea’s Champions League quarter-final win over Paris Saint-Germain and has missed games in the Premier League against Sunderland and Liverpool.
The Belgian has been Chelsea’s star player this season, scoring 14 goals in the league to become the club’s top scorer. He’s also created 87 chances which is the highest figure at Stamford Bridge.
Hazard has scored four fewer goals in the league as Demba Ba, Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto’o combined.
