Hazard’s race against time to face Man City
EDEN HAZARD is out for Belgium with the calf injury that ruled him out of Chelsea’s 2-1 win at Stoke. Belgium boss Roberto Martinez said Hazard will be out for ‘10-15 days’, ruling him out of the World Cup qualifier against Greece on Saturday and Tuesday’s friendly in Russia. Hazard could miss Crystal Palace’s visit on April 1, and Chelsea host Manchester City four days later. Fellow Belgian Thibaut Courtois wants Antonio Conte to get a new deal. He signed a three-year contract in April, but has been linked with clubs in Italy. ‘He’s important for the club and I think they know that, so they will do whatever to have a happy ending,’ Courtois said.
