A news that rings a fire of excitement, Chelsea’s Belgian winger Eden Hazard has been cleared to face Everton in weekend’s Barclays Premier League game. The 22 year old was an injury scare for Jose Mourinho’s team after limping off from a training session with his national team last week. All players who were on International duty returned to their clubs today (Thursday) to kick start their preparation for our game in Goodson Park.
Also new signings Samuel Eto’o and Willian will for the first time meet with all the players and train at Cobham. It will be interesting to see whether Jose will prefer to keep his starting 11s from previous games or if he will hand Willian or Eto’o their debut in a start against the Merseysiders. It was heavily predicted Willian was going to start as left winger as a result of Hazard’s injury but, since the Belgian has recovered, he might have to battle for the spot full on.
Juan Mata might also start a game for Chelsea in his preferred no. 10 role for the first time under Jose Mourinho since the recovery of Oscar from the injury he suffered after a collision with international team mate, Hernanes in training is also not addressed till this point. We will hear from Jose Mourinho’s press-conference on Friday to determine the availability of the Selecao star.
With the great news coming out on Hazard’s injury, let’s hope Oscar’s injury is nothing serious as well.
