Sarri give injury update on Eden Hazard

Eden Hazard is out of Chelsea’s Europa League squad for their game against BATE Borisov with a back problem, manager Maurizio Sarri confirmed.

Hazard completed 90 minutes in Chelsea’s late 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Saturday, but was limping and holding his lower back as he left the pitch.

Sarri says Hazard will not make the trip to Belarussia in order for him to be fit for Chelsea’s Premier League game with Burnley on Sunday.

“Tomorrow, he (Hazard) is out for sure. He has a back problem,” said Sarri. “We are trying to solve the problem for Sunday, it is not very easy.”

Hazard has been in spectacular form this campaign despite his exploits last summer in leading Belgium to third place at the World Cup.

The 27-year-old is the club’s top scorer with eight goals in all games this season, seven of them coming from his 11 Premier League appearances this campaign.

With Ethan Ampadu also ruled out with a knee injury and Jorginho rested, Sarri will look to make changes with one eye on Sunday’s game against Burnley.

“For sure Jorginho (will be rested) and then I don’t know,” Sarri said.

“The problem will not be this match, it will be the next match after 65 hours. We have to be careful I think, so maybe five, six (changes).”

Sarri also said he will give Marco Ianni “another opportunity” after confirming the club will accept the FA charge handed to him

Ianni celebrated in front of the Manchester United bench in their match on Saturday after Ross Barkley’s 96th-minute equalizer.
