Belgian squad have always experienced injuries due to rigorous training in the midfield and as well competitors looking to take the first team shirt.

This traditional attitude is added to why Belgium players are improving sporadically in different countries over the world.

While the Belgian side were still controlled by then manager, Marc Wilmots, there were more injury worries and fitness issues and this major concern affected them in their slow pace under him.

However, that was not the case for the current manager Roberto Martinez.

Martinez appears to be a more concerned coach that respects the club’s managers as he pays attention to little details and shows more concern about their fitness level.

Chadli, Mignolet , Fellaini and Benteke are already injured and absent. But another surprise in the list of the absentees is Eden Hazard. The Belgian captain will surely give Sarri a lift in preparing his maestro in the next challenge ahead.

But report showed that no explanation was given for is absentee which could catch the attention of his manager.

Alderweireld just had a baby as his surprise package for his being absent from his teammates.

The blues will be expecting to know the outcome of Hazard’s excuses as Sarri is poised to see all his players come back with full or very close to perfect fitness.
