Chelsea winger Eden Hazard suffers back injury in Manchester United match?

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has reportedly emerged as an injury doubt ahead of the club’s next two fixtures.

Hazard has enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign with seven goals and three assists coming from nine outings in the Premier League, but the playmaker may find himself on the sidelines for Chelsea’s upcoming matches.

According to The Mirror, Hazard sustained a back problem in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United and was still carrying the issue on Sunday.

Hazard completed the 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge, but the report suggests that the Belgium international could miss the games against BATE Borisov and Burnley.

Maurizio Sarri may have already planned to rest Hazard for the clash in the Europa League on Thursday, but the Italian will want his star man available as Chelsea look to extend their unbeaten top-flight streak to 10 matches at Turf Moor.
