West London outfit Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has reacted to the knock sustained by Belgium international Eden Hazard during their win against Slavia Prague on Thursday night.

Eden Hazard was down hit during the first few minutes of the game and was attended to before he returned back to the field but he was unable to go through 90 minutes as he was substituted in the 65th minute.

This has therefore raised fears that he could be unavailable for their Premier League fixture this weekend but that has been dismissed by the Italian boss who claims that he expects Eden Hazard to remain fit.

There is no doubt about Eden Hazard’s quality and his importance to the team, especially now that his team lack cutting edge in the attack and has the Belgium international in great form to deliver goals for the team.

However, Maurizio Sarri admitted that it was a strong knock on Eden Hazard but remains hopeful that they can be able to recover him before the coming game.

Meanwhile, the West London outfit are hoping to avoid the Europa League next season and that is why they are pressing to have a top-four finish in the Premier League so as to play in the Champions League.
